Chart Roundup – Week of December 7th, 2013

Sweet-Annie

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. Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Stay’ beat them out on this chart and took #1 with ‘Stay’, bubbling just under the surface at #2 on Hot Country Songs and #9 on Country Airplay, with ‘Here’s To The Good Times’ sticking to #3 on Top Country Albums. In addition ‘Cruise’ has returned to #9 on Country Digital Songs, and ‘Round Here’ is at #18 on the same chart. Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’ remains a good seller, charting at #3 across Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay, although falling a little to #8 on Country Digital Songs. ‘Based On A True Story…’ has returned to #4 on Top Country Albums too.

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.

Chart Roundup – Week of September 14th, 2013

Thomas-Rhett-2013-300

Looks like we another long-staying chart topper in Luke Bryan’s ‘That’s My Kind of Night’.
True, it may only be his 3rd week at #1 on Hot Country Songs and
Country Digital Songs, but who really sees this polarizing track slowing down?
It has, after all, moved up five places this week to #10 on Country Airplay,
and is accompanied by his fourth studio album, ‘Crash My Party’, also at #1.
The reigning ACM Entertainer of The Year is having a year unrivalled (don’t
forget all those ACA awards last December too) and I can’t see ‘That’s My Kind
of Night’ falling from the top spot for a good several more weeks. If that
weren’t enough, his previous hit ‘Crash My Party’ is still at #9 on Hot Country
Songs and #7 on Country Digital Songs, and
his 2011 release ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’ is still at #5 on Top Country
Albums. Jeez.

Chart Roundup – Week of September 7th, 2013

Night-Train

Once again, Luke Bryan is at the top of 3 of our charts this
week. ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ remains at #1 on Hot Country Songs and Country
Digital Songs, while it moves up to #15 on Country Airplay. ‘Crash My Party’ is
at #1 on Top Country Albums again after selling 159,000 this week alone. The
single is also still doing well, though it dropped 6 places to #9 on Hot
Country Songs, but re-entered Country Digital Songs to place at #5. Other
tracks of Luke’s from the new record have dropped off the top end of Billboard’s
charts, but ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’, Luke’s last record from 2011, only
falls to #5 on Top Country Albums, while his EP from earlier this year falls 9
positions to #18.
