Weekly Chart Report (7/30/10)

While in the Twin Cities for a CD launch party, Jerrod Niemann (L) took in a Twins game with KEEY/Minneapolis PD Gregg Swedberg (R).

SPIN ZONE
The battle for No. 1 continues for yet another week, and Keith Urban’s “I’m In” holds the top spot for a second consecutive week as Blake Shelton’s “All About Tonight” cuts the difference between them to seven spins. Sure to be contending for the No. 1 position soon is Lady Antebellum’s “Our Kind Of Love,” which packs on 150 spins and overcomes the slow-moving top 10 as it leaps to No. 4. Also getting a good boost is Billy Currington’s “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” which moves 9-7.

Right now is a popular time to release a new single if you’re a superstar artist. The fall album release schedule includes Kenny Chesney, Sugarland, Reba and Taylor Swift and is just far enough away that singles will reach critical mass by release date. Chesney’s “The Boys of Fall” is leading the pack at No. 25, still a week ahead of its official add date of August 9. Reba’s “Turn On The Radio” is climbing fast at No. 29. Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” exploded this week, racing on the chart for a huge debut at No. 45 and a gain of 669 spins. Swift also has a new single (“Mine”) waiting in the wings, so look to see it making a big impact soon.

Other singles making debuts include Luke Bryan’s “Someone Else Calling You Baby” at No. 60, Chris Young’s “Voices” at No. 66, and newcomer David Adam Byrnes’s “Sweet Distraction” at No. 73.
