Yet again, Luke Bryan’s
‘That’s My Kind of Night’ dominates both Hot Country Songs and Country Digital
Songs. It’s also moved up to #3 on Country Airplay, and I can imagine will top
that chart too next week. ‘Crash My Party’ has dropped to #2 on Top Country
Albums, knocked from #1 by Cassadee Pope’s
country debut ‘Frame By Frame’, which has pushed the lead single ‘Wasting All
These Tears’ to #10 on Hot Country Songs, #4 on Country Digital Songs and #24
on Country Airplay.

Thomas Rhett’s ‘It
Goes Like This’ has hit #1 on radio, holding onto #2 on Hot Country Songs and
#3 on Country Digital Songs, leading up to the release of his equally-titled
debut album on October 29. Jason Aldean’s
‘Night Train’ has moved back up to #3 on Hot Country Songs, although it drops
to #6 on Country Digital Songs and #4 on Country Airplay. His album has fallen
off the Top Country Albums top 10, down to #12. Meanwhile, Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’ remains a steady contender, #5
on Country Digital Songs, #4 on Hot Country Songs (its current peak) and #6 on
Country Airplay, topped by Tim McGraw’s
‘Southern Girl’ at #5, #9 on Hot Country Songs and #18 on Country Digital
Songs. Blake’s ‘Based On A True Story…’ drops to #10 on Top Country Albums, and
will likely fall out of the top 10 next week, the first time since its release
last March. 

Billy Currington’s
‘Hey Girl’ is also jostling for glory, #2 this week on radio while #5 on Hot
Country Songs and #14 on Country Digital Songs, while ‘We Are Tonight’ falls to
#14 on Top Country Albums. Also on a downer is Tyler Farr’s ‘Redneck Crazy’, which a few weeks after the album’s
release is losing its momentum. The single is down to #7 on Hot Country Songs,
#9 on Country Airplay and #11 on Country Digital Songs, while the album is down
to #7. Meanwhile Florida Georgia Line
are beginning to be back in the game, their latest single ‘Stay’ making huge
advances on each chart even though it’s just been released, and ‘Cruise’ has
gained a place to #6 on Hot Country Songs, although it’s dropped to #9 on
Country Digital Songs. ‘Here’s To The Good Times’ is down to #4.

Another hot track is Chris
Young
’s ‘Aw Naw’, now reaching #8 on Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs,
and #12 on Country Digital Songs, fighting with Lee Brice’s ‘Parking Lot Party’, which is at #7 on Country Airplay
and #14 on Hot Country Songs. Keith
Urban
’s ‘We Were Us’ (featuring Miranda
Lambert
) is another one to watch, and this week gains to #10 on Country
Airplay, #8 on Country Digital Songs, and #11 on Hot Country Songs. New
releases include Kenny Rogers’ ‘You
Can’t Make Old Friends’ (#9 on Top Country Albums), and Chase Rice’s ‘Ready Set Roll’ (#2 on Country Digital Songs) .
Honorable mentions go to David Nail,
Eli Young Band, Joe Nichols, Taylor Swift,
Parmalee and Darius Rucker.

That’s it for this week, check back next Thursday for
another Billboard chart roundup from me!
