Looks like we another long-staying chart topper in Luke Bryan’s ‘That’s My Kind of Night’.
True, it may only be his 3rd week at #1 on Hot Country Songs and
Country Digital Songs, but who really sees this polarizing track slowing down?
It has, after all, moved up five places this week to #10 on Country Airplay,
and is accompanied by his fourth studio album, ‘Crash My Party’, also at #1.
The reigning ACM Entertainer of The Year is having a year unrivalled (don’t
forget all those ACA awards last December too) and I can’t see ‘That’s My Kind
of Night’ falling from the top spot for a good several more weeks. If that
weren’t enough, his previous hit ‘Crash My Party’ is still at #9 on Hot Country
Songs and #7 on Country Digital Songs, and
his 2011 release ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’ is still at #5 on Top Country
It can’t even be stopped by monster hit ‘Cruise’ by Florida Georgia Line, which is again at
#2 on both Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs this week, with ‘Round
Here’ peaking at #3 on Hot Country Songs, #2 on Country Airplay and #4 on
Country Digital Songs, and ‘Here’s To
The Good Times’ at #3 on Top Country Albums. Meanwhile ‘Night Train’ by Jason Aldean remains at #4 on Hot
Country Songs, up to #5 on Country Airplay and down to #5 on Country Digital Songs, while the album of the same
name drops to #8 on Top Country Albums. Fighting Jason for those spots is Thomas Rhett, who with the announcement
of his upcoming album, the title track ‘It Goes Like This’ has climbed to #5 on
Hot Country Songs, #3 on Country Digital Songs, and #12 on Country Airplay. Not
bad for a newcomer.
Up this week is Blake
Shelton with ‘Mine Would Be You’, now at #6 on Country Digital Songs, #13
on Hot Country Songs and #17 on Country Airplay. ‘Based On A True Story…’ is
still going strong on Top Country Albums, while ‘Boys Round Here’ sits only
just below its successor on the rankings, racking up #16 on Hot Country Songs
and #9 on Country Digital Songs. Keith
Urban spends a second week at #1 on radio with ‘Little Bit of Everything’,
not doing quite as well in the sales department with a #6 placement on Hot
Country Songs and a decidedly lower #16 on Country Digital Songs. I’m sure the
release of his new album ‘Fuse’ next week will make a significant difference to
the chart, however.
debut album ‘Bring You Back’ may have fallen to #16 this week, but ‘Don’t Ya’
is holding out at #4 on Country Airplay, #11 on Country Digital Songs and #8 on
Hot Country Songs. Plus, Tyler Farr
may be ‘Redneck Crazy’, but it’s serving him well, achieving places at #7, #8
and #8 across Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay and Country Digital Songs
respectively. Billy Currington is
also seeing a rise in sales, ‘Hey Girl’ making the top 10 of Hot Country Songs
and #7 on Country Airplay, although he trails a little at #13 on Country
Digital Songs. And after a slow burner, Easton
Corbin’s ‘All Over The Road’ makes #3 on Country Airplay, #11 on Hot
Country Songs, and a slightly more disappointing #25 on Country Digital Songs.
New releases include Dierks Bentley’s ‘I Hold On’, debuting
at #22 on Country Digital Songs, and Cassadee Pope’s ‘11’ (#19 on the same
chart, above ‘Wasting All These Tears’ at #21). Alabama have released their
‘Alabama & Friends’ album and it’s come in at #2, while Sundy Best’s ‘Door
Without A Screen’ clocks in at #33 on Top Country Albums, and Due West’s ‘Move
Like That EP’ is just below it at #38.
Honorable mentions go to Darius Rucker, Randy Houser, Justin
Moore, Lee Brice, Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes, Tim McGraw and Chris Young.
