Weekly Chart Report (8/13/10)

SPIN ZONE
And the hits keep on coming. Capitol Nashville locks the CountryBreakout Chart’s top spot as Lady Antebellum’s “Our Kind Of Love” ascends, following a multi-week stay at No. 1 by Keith Urban’s “I’m In.” Urban slips to No. 2, followed by another recent No. 1, Blake Shelton’s “All About Tonight.” Yet another previous No. 1, Little Big Town’s “Little White Church,” sticks at No. 4. Close behind is Billy Currington’s “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” which moves up to No. 5.

In recent weeks several singles have made a massive impact upon release. First, Kenny Chesney’s “The Boys of Fall” debuted at No. 49 a month ago. Then Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” hit big a couple weeks later, debuting at No. 45. The following week, Rascal Flatts one-upped them both by landing at No. 42 with “Why Wait.” And now, Taylor Swift’s “Mine” trumps them all by gaining 1022 spins to enter the chart at No. 31.

That’s the greatest single week gain in spins since Garth Brooks’ “More Than A Memory” earned a 1577 spin gain and debuted at No. 26 back in 2007. Other members of the 1000+ gainer club include Gretchen Wilson’s 2005 hit “All Jacked Up,” Brooks’ 2005 offering “Good Ride Cowboy,” and Toby Keith’s “High Maintenance Woman” from 2007.
