It’ll be an achievement indeed when a song knocks Florida Georgia
Line off the top spot; yet again their smash hit ‘Cruise’ (featuring Nelly) is
at #1 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs, although their latest hit
‘Get Your Shine On’ has fallen to #9 on Country Airplay. The track has also
fallen to #6 on Hot Country Songs and #8 on Country Digital Songs, indicating
that it simply isn’t as strong as their first single. Their album remains at
#5.

Sitting at the top of Country Airplay is a new #1 in the
shape of Tim McGraw’s ‘Highway Don’t Care’ (featuring Taylor Swift and Keith
Urban), although it’s struggling to rise above #4 on Hot Country Songs and
Country Digital Songs. Tim’s latest album ‘Two Lanes of Freedom’ is now down to
#11 although it could see another rise in the coming weeks as this single
really takes hold at the top. Another contender for #1 is Blake Shelton’s ‘Boys
Round Here’ (featuring Pistol Annies and friends), currently at #2 on Hot
Country Songs and Country Digital Songs, and #3 on Country Airplay, while Blake’s
March-released ‘Based On A True Story…’ has actually reclaimed #1 on Top
Country Albums, after some weeks being beaten to it. Darius Rucker’s ‘True
Believers’ has been knocked down to #2 because of this, with his single ‘Wagon
Wheel’ at #3 on Country Digital Songs and Hot Country Songs and #2 on Country
Airplay. With last night’s performance on the CMT Awards this song may be set
to rise again, marking a great year so far for Darius.

Luke Bryan may also enjoy a rise in sales after his
performance last night. ‘Crash My Party’ has stepped up yet another place to #5
on Hot Country Songs, marking his sometimes slow but constant rise up the
charts since the song was released. It’s also at #6 on Country Airplay and #5
on Country Digital Songs, while his chart-buddy Hunter Hayes sits closely
behind him with ‘I Want Crazy’, at #7, #13 and #6 respectively. The Band Perry
have seen a significant rise of their single ‘DONE’ recently, which is now at
#8 on Hot Country Songs, #10 on Country Digital Songs and #8 on Country
Airplay, while ‘Pioneer’ is at a very respectable #9 on Top Country Albums.

Another hot track this summer is ‘Anywhere With You’ by Jake
Owen, a dark horse of country singles that is now at #4 on Country Airplay, #9
on Hot Country Songs and #13 on Country Digital Songs. He is accompanied across
the charts by Brad Paisley with ‘Beat This Summer’, #14 on Country Digital
Songs, #5 on Country Airplay and #10 on Hot Country Songs. The Voice contestant
Danielle Bradbery has yet another entry this week, this time ‘Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout
The Good Old Days)’, and it’s come in at #7 on Country Digital Songs and #24 on
Hot Country Songs. However, surprisingly there are no more new entries on any
of the 4 charts this week.

Honorable mentions go to Randy Houser, Eric Church, Lady
Antebellum, George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Kip Moore, Carrie Underwood, Zac
Brown Band and Kenny Chesney.

Come by next Thursday for another dose of my Billboard chart
roundup!
