Atlanta radio in 2016 played no shortage of songs by the likes of Rihanna, Drake, Twenty One Pilots and Justin Bieber but it all depends on format.

Pop radio embraced the Chainsmokers, Adele and Calvin Harris. R&B/hip hop loved Bryson Tiller, Beyonce and Future. Country played tons of Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan. Christian pop gave plenty of love to Casting Crowns and Chris Tomlin.  And classic rock still loves Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Aerosmith.
