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.
