The country superstar has charted top 10s in the '90s, '00s and, now, '10s.

On the latest Country Airplay chart (dated Nov. 4), Garth Brooks earns his first top 10 hit in 10 years, as "Ask Me How I Know" rises 12-10 in its 31st charting frame.
The song, from his 2016 album Gunslinger and which concurrently becomes Brooks' first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 in 10 years (debuting at No. 98), earns the country legend his 35th top 10 hit on Country Airplay, the ninth-best total in the chart's 27-year history. George Strait leads with 61, followed by Tim McGraw (57), Kenny Chesney (53), Alan Jackson (51), Toby Keith (42), Brooks & Dunn (41), Keith Urban (38), Reba McEntire (36) and Brooks.
Additionally, of Brooks' 35 Country Airplay top 10s, more than half (18) have reached No. 1. (McGraw holds the record for the most leaders: 29.)
In honor of Brooks' latest top 10 Country Airplay hit, here's a rundown, in chronological order, of each of his 35 songs to reach the region, from "Not Counting You" in 1990 to "Ask Me How I Know." (Brooks scored two hits that peaked before the list's launch in January 1990: "Much Too Young [To Feel This Damn Old]" and "If Tomorrow Never Comes," which ranked at No. 22 on the inaugural chart.)
