I may not talk about Gary Allan as much as I used to, but the sexy, sexy man is still my secret husband and probably always will be. 

That said, this thrills me to no end! 

From Gary's Facebook

In choosing a tourmate, it's apparently first come, first served and Darius Rucker, unfortunately, wasn't the first one in line when it came to choosing newly-gone-country Sheryl Crow as a tour…

Chart Roundup: Week of February 16th, 2013

TheBandPerry-BetterDigTwo-311012

The Band Perry knock
Gary Allan off the #1 spot this week
with ‘Better Dig Two’, although they
stay at their respective places at #2 and #3 on Country Digital Songs and
Country Airplay.  With them sticking to
the top 5 of the charts so much lately, we can only imagine what the release of
their sophomore album in April is going to do for this sibling trio. Gary Allan, who was #1 across the board
last week, has dropped down to #2
on both Hot Country Songs and Country
Airplay with his hit track ‘Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain)’, down to #3 on
Country Digital Songs but manages to hold on to the top spot on Top Country
Albums for another week. Meanwhile Country
Airplay has a new #1
, in Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Eric Church’s ‘The
Only Way I Know’ from Jason’s album ‘Night Train’, although it’s still at #5 on
Hot Country Songs and has only managed to climb back up to #8 on Country
Digital Songs. ‘Night Train’ is down #6 this week.

In its 4th week on the chart, Blake Shelton’s ‘Sure
Be Cool If You Did’ has jumped from #3 to #1, and Blake’s recent controversial comments don’t seem to have affected his
selling power
, as he appears to be going from strength to strength. The
song has also gained 3 places on Hot Country Songs, now at #4, although it
remains down at #12 on Country Airplay. Hunter Hayes, meanwhile, is also having
a not-too-shabby time, with his multiple Grammy nominations on Grammy weekend
and holding on tightly to the #3 spot on Hot Country Songs, the #4 spot on
Country Digital Songs and the #11 spot on Country Airplay. In addition, his
self-titled debut is up one place to #7, celebrating its 69th week
on the chart.

Chart Roundup: Week of February 9th, 2013

Gary Allan’s had a
great week
with his hugely successful single ‘Every Storm (Runs Out Of
Rain)’ jumping up to #1 from #2 on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay
charts, with it shooting from #4 to #1 on Country Digital Songs. Overall this
song has been on the chart a respectable 22 weeks with seemingly many more to
come. If that isn’t enough, his newly released album ‘Set You Free’ that the
aforementioned hit is from has debuted at #1 on Top Country Albums, making for
a clean sweep from the 45-year-old California native.

‘Better Dig Two’ from
The Band Perry is continuing to do well
, up to #3 on Country Airplay and #2
on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs. While there is still two months
to wait until their as-yet-untitled sophomore album is released on April 2nd,
we can be sure with the success of the lead-off single that it will dominate
the charts in a similar way. Randy
Houser’s also enjoying a successful time
with the release of his album ‘How
Country Feels’, going straight in at #3 on Top Country Albums, the title track moving
up to #6 on Hot Country Songs and #4 on Country Airplay (on the chart for 40
weeks!), shooting, surprisingly, from #15 to #6 this week on Country Digital
Songs.

Other key figures on
the chart this week
include Hunter Hayes, whose mega-hit ‘Wanted’ is still
sitting pretty at #3 on Hot Country Songs and #4 on Country Digital Songs, his
self-titled album dropping to #8 on Top Country Albums. Florida Georgia Line
also aren’t looking too shabby, ‘Cruise’ remaining at #4 on Hot Country Songs
but dropping to #5 on Country Digital Songs. Their album, ‘Here’s To The Good
Times’ drops from #2 to #4 on Top Country Albums. As for climbers, ‘The Only
Way I Know’, the country/rap release from Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Luke
Bryan, is making its way up all charts, the album it’s taken from, Jason’s ‘Night
Train’, remaining at #5 on Top Country Albums for its 15th week on
the chart.
