Post-ACMs a number of
artists have had a bit of a sales boost this week. Florida Georgia Line are back at #1 with ‘Cruise’ long after its
peak as a single on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs, after they
performed it in Vegas last Sunday. Their latest single ‘Get Your Shine On’
drops down to #6 on Hot Country Songs, climbs to #8 on Country Airplay, but
drops to #9 on Country Digital Songs, and their album ‘Here’s To The Good
Times’ leaps three places to #3. Also
enjoying some success after their appearance on the ACMs are Tim McGraw’s,
Taylor Swift’s and Keith Urban’s track ‘Highway Don’t Care’, which goes up four
places on Hot Country Songs to #7, as well as #4 on Country Digital Songs and
#14 on Country Airplay. The song is taken from Tim’s album ‘Two Lanes of
Freedom’, which unfortunately drops five places to #17 this week.
In addition, co-host
Blake Shelton’s ‘Boys Round Here’ (featuring Pistol Annies and friends) is
now at #6 on Country Digital Songs, and at #12 on Hot Country Songs, while his
previous single ‘Sure Be Cool If You Did’ drops to #3 on Country Digital Songs,
#7 on Country Airplay, and #3 on Hot Country Songs. His new album ‘Based On A
True Story’ has been knocked off the top spot down to #2 by The Band Perry’s
sophomore release ‘Pioneer’. The sibling
trio have also had a boost from their electrifying performance at the ACMs,
with their latest single ‘DONE.’ jumping an incredible fifteen places to #10 on Hot Country Songs, and thirteen places to
#7 on Country Digital Songs. It remains at #19 on Country Airplay, in the
normal place for a single so new.
