This week, the Billboard country charts have been more
static than usual. In fact, Hot Country Songs’ top 5 is exactly the same, highlighting the key players and their consistent
selling. As per usual Florida Georgia Line are at the top, ‘Cruise’ at #1 on
Hot Country Songs and #1 on Country Digital Songs. ‘Get Your Shine On’ is not
too far behind, at #9 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs, and their
third single ‘Round Here’ has begun its ascent on the Country Airplay top 30,
this week at #29. ‘Here’s To The Good Times’ has risen to #3 on Top Country
Albums once more.
Again, Blake Shelton’s ‘Boys Round Here’ (featuring Pistol
Annies and friends) is FGL’s strongest contender. At #2 on Hot Country Songs
and Country Airplay, and #3 on Country Digital Songs, the recent release of a
celebrity remix is bound to push the track to #1 next week. If that weren’t
enough, Blake’s latest album ‘Based On A True Story…’ holds onto the #1 spot on
Top Country Albums. Not too far behind him is Darius Rucker, whose album ‘True
Believers’ is at #2, while the big hit ‘Wagon Wheel’ remains at #3 on Hot
Country Songs, #6 on Country Airplay, and #4 on Country Digital Songs.
