Unfortunate legal situations aside, it seems like the track has resonated with audiences and hit no. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. It will be the 12th no. 1 single for Church and the 14th no. 1 single for Wallen.

“Man Made A Bar” was released in 2023 and is a collaborative effort between Wallen and Church. The track is included on Wallen’s album One Thing At A Time. Fans online have noted the irony of the song’s success. The song pays homage to the hominess and sanctuary of bars after experiencing heartbreak.
