*-if multiple songs tied for peak position, the song that held that position for the most weeks is considered to be a higher peak; if two or more songs from a non-USA source debuted on the same chart they are all considered the first hit song, as in the case with the Indie and Texas Regional songs.
**-beginning in 2017, there was no longer a limit on the number of points a song could have.  In prior years where points were used, they were maximums of 100 and 125 depending on how I determined the points.  In 2018, I increased the available points to 10,000, therefore making it easier for songs to accumulate a large amount of points.  Since the availability was much higher, I decided to have a record for 2017 and a separarte one for 2018 on.  Then, I got rid of the strict total of points for the entire chart and instituted a system where there would be a lot more points available; a 3rd category was added for this new era of point accumulation.  Finally, I decided to make some more changes to the Point System (hopefully the final change), which made more points available to the songs, so "2020 on" gets its own category.
***- beginning with the 10/8 edition voting (10/8-10/14/17 chart), I merged the American and Bluegrass songs into one source calls Roots, or Roots Music.  Due to the merger, the old Americana and Bluegrass records will no longer change and new records will be kept for the merged sources.  I will not declare a 1st Roots hit because of the merger as well.
****-beginning in 2018, the longest a song could be in the voting was 30 weeks  With songs getting a one-week "encore" on the chart after being removed from the voting, the longest a song could be on the chart became 31 weeks.  This section recognizes the songs that were able to stay in the voting that long.
