This might get played on adult contemporary stations, they're more likely to play older singers. But I don't see it getting any Top 40 airplay, not the right sound.

Love this track wish it would have been a whole new record too but his last album was really good also, straight forward rock. As for getting played on TOP 40 it has nothing to do with your sound, his age automatically casts him out plain and simple. AGE-ISM plain and simple no one old slips through the cracks and gets TOP 40 play, you got artists debuting and having number one records like Springsteen and Jovi all the time and you will never hear them on a top 40 station again, those days of real people and djs working at radio are over.

Sure it does. Do you think a glam metal band or someone doing disco or doo wop, even if they were young, would get Top 40 airplay today? I don't hear any jazz on Top 40 either. This is the Top 20 on the Hot 100 for this week, and I don't think this song would get played, even if Bryan's vocals were replaced by a young singer.

If it was a Sam smith or Camila Cabello ballad it would be a top 10 hit just because of the name and push of what is to be played as a label priority.
