Chart Roundup – Week of June 8th, 2013


Florida Georgia Line continue their record-breaking ways, achieving
their 13th week at #1 on Hot Country Songs with ‘Cruise’ (featuring
Nelly). The hit track is also #1 on Country Digital Songs, while the duo’s
second single ‘Get Your Shine On’ drops to #5 on Country Airplay. However,
their 2012 album ‘Here’s To The Good Times’ moves up two places to #5. Darius
Rucker has held onto his #1 spot on Country Airplay for another week with ‘Wagon
Wheel’, moving up to #2 on Hot Country Songs and sticking to #3 on Country
Digital Songs. What’s more, his brand new album ‘True Believers’ comes into Top
Country Albums at a shiny #1, making this a very good week for the Grand Ole
Opry member.

Also doing well is Blake Shelton with ‘Boys Round Here’
(featuring Pistol Annies and others), reaching #3 on Country Airplay and #2 on
Country Digital Songs, despite being knocked down to #3 on Hot Country Songs.
Released last March, ‘Based On A True Story…’ remains strong at #4 on Top
Country Albums. Tim McGraw’s ‘Highway Don’t Care’ (featuring Taylor Swift and
Keith Urban) continues the collaborative theme, with positionings at #4 (Hot
Country Songs), #2 (Country Airplay), #4 (Country Digital Songs) and #9 (Top
Country Albums with ‘Two Lanes of Freedom’). Elsewhere Luke Bryan is making
waves with ‘Crash My Party’, at #9 on Country Airplay, #5 on Country Digital
Songs and #6 on Hot Country Songs, one of the few artists to be constantly
rising up every chart week after week, proving his commercial viability as ACM Entertainer
of the Year.

Also popular is Hunter Hayes and his soon-to-be summer hit ‘I
Want Crazy’, hot on Luke’s heels and now at #7 on Hot Country Songs, #6 on
Country Digital Songs, and #13 on Country Airplay. But that’s not to ignore the
strong progress of Jake Owen, whose ‘Anywhere With You’ is at #10 on Hot
Country Songs, an impressive #4 on Country Airplay and #15 on Country Digital
Songs, while The Band Perry’s ‘DONE’ reaches #9 on Hot Country Songs, #8 on
Country Airplay and #12 on Country Digital Songs. Their recent album ‘Pioneer’
sits at #8. Then there’s Miranda Lambert, still holding out in the top 10 with ‘Mama’s
Broken Heart’, #9 on Country Digital Songs and #8 on Hot Country Songs, and
last week’s Top Country Albums #1, George Strait’s ‘Love Is Everything’ falls
to #2.

New releases include Danielle Bradbery’s ‘Heads Carolina,
Tails California’, coming in at #8 on Country Digital Songs and #23 on Hot
Country Songs, while Chris Young’s ‘Aw Naw’ debuts at #19 on the former. Holly
Tucker’s ‘How Great Thou Art’ is at #22 on Country Digital Songs.

Honorable mentions go to Lady Antebellum, Randy Houser,
Kenny Chesney, Kip Moore, Brad Paisley, Eric Church and Carrie Underwood.
