Chart Roundup – Week of September 21st, 2013

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.

Ex Tim McGraw band member reportedly planning tell-all book

Uh oh, looks like those non-disclosure agreements I'm pretty sure Tim McGraw had his ex band members sign may not hold up as well as he might have hoped because Radar Online is reporting that one disgruntled ex employee/friend is planning a tell-all book.

According to the report (which is based on a National Enquirer story, so yeah), the juiciest part of the story of the unnamed former band member's book will involve the "homoerotic hijinks" that took place while on tour.

And – OMG! – there's a picture of Tim slapping another man’s bare bottom (enter sarcasm here).

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.
