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.

Florida Georgia Line Score 3rd Radio #1 With 'Round Here'

Of course, Luke Bryan
sits atop the charts yet again this week with ‘That’s My Kind of Night’, and
his album ‘Crash My Party’. The only chart he hasn’t yet conquered is Country
Airplay, which unfortunately has equally been besmirched by Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Round Here’,
now at #1. The former is up to #8 on the radio chart, however, and will
inevitably get to #1 very soon. In addition ‘Crash My Party’ the single is
still riding high at #8 on Country Digital Songs and #11 on Hot Country Songs.

In regards the latter, Florida
Georgia Line
’s ‘Round Here’ seems to not yet be at the peak of its success.
It’s at #5 on Country Digital Songs and #3 on Hot Country Songs, while
naturally ‘Cruise’ tops it holding onto #2 on both charts. ‘Here’s To The Good
Times’ also looks unmoveable at #3 on Top Country Albums. Then we have Jason Aldean’s ‘Night Train’; #4 across
Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay, and #6 on Country Digital Songs, with
the album of the same name up to #7 this week. Jason could have reached his
peak with this one but there could be a couple more higher positions in it.

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.
