Chart Roundup – Week of July 27th, 2013

Iwantcrazy-350x217

As if it were a surprise to anyone, the force that is
Florida Georgia Line remains at #1 on Hot Country Songs yet again this week
with ‘Cruise’(remix featuring Nelly). In addition, it remains at #1 on Country
Digital Songs too, while their latest single ‘Round Here’ is at #6 on the same
chart, #16 on Country Airplay and #8 on Hot Country Songs. Their album ‘Here’s
To The Good Times’ stays at #1. Could it become a possibility that they end up
holding both the #1 and #2 spots on the sales charts? Quite easily, in a couple
of weeks’ time.

Blake Shelton also stands in the running for the soundtrack
of the summer, ‘Boys Round Here’ (featuring Pistol Annies and friends) at #2 on
Country Digital Songs, but falling to #4 on Hot Country Songs, while his latest
single ‘Mine Would Be You’ not yet charting on Country Airplay top 25. In
contrast, Hunter Hayes is still rising with ‘I Want Crazy’, taking the #2 spot on
Hot Country Songs this week while he holds onto #3 on Country Digital Songs. He
stays at #6 on Country Airplay, and #4 on Top Country Albums with the ‘Encore’
edition of his self-titled debut album, which still lags behind Blake Shelton’s
‘Based On A True Story…’, standing strong at #2.

Chart Roundup – Week of July 20th, 2013

Crash-My-Party

I think most country fans are looking for the charts to get
more interesting now as most of them have come to a standstill this week.
Florida Georgia Line are still at #1 (does it even need to be said?) with their
‘Cruise’ remix on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs, and ‘Here’s To
The Good Times’ remains at #1 on Top Country Albums. Meanwhile, their new
single ‘Round Here’ is climbing up in the wake of its predecessor’s success, at
#7 on Country Digital Songs, #19 on Country Airplay and #13 on Hot Country
Songs. It seems likely that before long it too will reach #1.

Chart Roundup – Week of July 6th, 2013

Hunter-Hayes-Hunter-Hayes-Encore-Deluxe-Version

With the release of Hunter Hayes’ ‘Encore’ edition of his
self-titled debut album (the deluxe edition in laymen’s terms), has rocketed
the country pop singer back to the top of Top Country Albums, while the lead
single off the record, ‘I Want Crazy’ is now at #3 on Hot Country Songs and
Country Digital Songs. If that wasn’t enough, it’s now also at #7 on Country
Airplay. Leading that chart is Jake Owen with ‘Anywhere With You’, which is
down to #8 on Hot Country Songs and #22 on Country Digital Songs.

#1 on Country Digital Songs is Florida Georgia Line, with ‘Cruise’
(featuring Nelly), that is also #1 on Hot Country Songs for yet another week. ‘Here’s
To the Good Times’ is at #2 on Top Country Albums. This duo seem unstoppable,
even by Blake Shelton, who remains at #2 on both charts this week with ‘Boys
Round Here’ (featuring Pistol Annies). The song has dropped down to #4 on
Country Airplay, however, after being last week’s #1. His album, ‘Based On A
True Story…’, also stays at #3 this week. Darius Rucker’s ‘Wagon Wheel’ is
holding out too, down to #4 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs
while ‘True Believers’ is at #4 on Top Country Albums.
