Chart Roundup – Week of July 27th, 2013


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.
