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.

Chart Roundup – Week of November 16th, 2013

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.

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.
