Chart Roundup – Week of October 26th, 2013

Cassadee-pope-frame-by-frame-album-cover-400x400

Yet again, Luke Bryan’s
‘That’s My Kind of Night’ dominates both Hot Country Songs and Country Digital
Songs. It’s also moved up to #3 on Country Airplay, and I can imagine will top
that chart too next week. ‘Crash My Party’ has dropped to #2 on Top Country
Albums, knocked from #1 by Cassadee Pope’s
country debut ‘Frame By Frame’, which has pushed the lead single ‘Wasting All
These Tears’ to #10 on Hot Country Songs, #4 on Country Digital Songs and #24
on Country Airplay.

Thomas Rhett’s ‘It
Goes Like This’ has hit #1 on radio, holding onto #2 on Hot Country Songs and
#3 on Country Digital Songs, leading up to the release of his equally-titled
debut album on October 29. Jason Aldean’s
‘Night Train’ has moved back up to #3 on Hot Country Songs, although it drops
to #6 on Country Digital Songs and #4 on Country Airplay. His album has fallen
off the Top Country Albums top 10, down to #12. Meanwhile, Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’ remains a steady contender, #5
on Country Digital Songs, #4 on Hot Country Songs (its current peak) and #6 on
Country Airplay, topped by Tim McGraw’s
‘Southern Girl’ at #5, #9 on Hot Country Songs and #18 on Country Digital
Songs. Blake’s ‘Based On A True Story…’ drops to #10 on Top Country Albums, and
will likely fall out of the top 10 next week, the first time since its release
last March.
