Just a couple of days ago, I revealed that Billy Ray Cyrus had recorded a duet with singing legend Dionne Warwick. She even appeared in his Seriously Cyrus episode last Sunday. 

Yesterday, that duet was revealed by USA Today. 

Hope Is Just Ahead is the new song featuring Cyrus and Warwick. Recorded at Jamie Foxx’s studio in Los Angeles, the single will impact radio on Monday, February 3, 2014, with a portion of the proceeds from song sales being donated to Do The Write Thing-National Campaign to Stop Violence

This week Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert’s smash hit ‘We Were Us’ has hit #1 on country radio, and retains the top spot on Hot Country Songs for another week. In addition, it holds onto #2 on Country Digital Songs.

There’s been quite the shake-up on the Billboard country charts. We’ll start with Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert’s ‘We Were Us’, whose combined star power has shot the song to the top of Hot Country Songs, neatly knocking Luke Bryan’s monster hit ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ down to #3. On Country Airplay Keith and Miranda move up to #4, while on Country Digital Songs it just jumped 7 places to #2. Looks like we have a new reign on our hands guys! Elsewhere Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’ has become the radio #1 (the 15th of his career), charting at #2 on Hot Country Songs and #5 on Country Digital Songs, pushing ‘Based On A True Story…’ back up to #4 on Top Country Albums.

WARNING: Don’t take this week seriously, I’m delirious and
think I’m funny.

So, you may have noticed I didn’t do a chart roundup last
week. No special reason; I was just sleeping instead. I miss sleep.

So Luke Bryan’s hogging #1 across Hot Country Songs and
Country Digital Songs still with ‘That’s My Kind of Night’, which I think is
mighty selfish of him. It’s dropped down to #6 on Country Airplay though, and he’s
down to #4 on Top Country Albums with ‘Crash My Party’, so at least he’s
sharing a little. Florida Georgia Line are missing their chart glory so ‘Stay’
is biting at Luke’s heels at #2 on Country Digital Songs and #8 on Hot Country
Songs, but country radio clearly doesn’t care seeing as it’s still at #19.
Thomas Rhett’s R&B hit ‘It Goes Like This’ is clearly fooling a lot of
people and is still at #2 on Hot Country Songs and #3 on Country Digital Songs/Country
Airplay, while his debut album has managed to come in above sell-out Toby Keith
by placing at #2. An album track called ‘Get Me Some of That’ is at #6 on
Country Digital Songs. Speaking of Toby, ‘Drinks After Work’ is at #3, in case
you cared.

Scotty McCreery Announces Sophomore Album Details

Just like the broken record of Florida Georgia Line that was, Luke
Bryan
’s ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ is becoming a mainstay of the country
charts. At #1 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs once more, it
moves up to #2 on Country Airplay this week, surely set to take the top spot
next week. In addition, his album ‘Crash My Party’ has fallen to #3. Meanwhile,
Thomas Rhett’s ‘It Goes Like This’
takes the radio #1, while it sits at #2 on Hot Country Songs and Country
Digital Songs, in advance of the release of his debut album next week. Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’
moves up to #3 on Hot Country Songs and #4 across Country Airplay and Country
Digital Songs, but ‘Based On A True Story…’ falls to #11 on Top Country Albums,
the first time it’s been out of the top 10 since its release in March.
