Weekly Chart Report (8/20/10)

Congratulations to Capitol Records and its promoters on earning a second consecutive week as the CountryBreakout Chart’s No. 1 song with Lady Antebellum’s “Our Kind Of Love.” Lady A currently has a comfortable margin of victory, but Billy Currington’s “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” Kenny Chesney’s “The Boys Of Fall,” and Darius Rucker’s “Come Back Song” are healthy and packing on the spins as well. UMG Nashville has two more entries moving up through the top 10—Josh Turner’s “All Over Me” at No. 5, and Easton Corbin’s “Roll With It” at No. 7.

The story of the chart of late is that of new singles from big artists rapidly making their way to the top. At four weeks or less, the top 30 includes Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” at No. 18, Rascal Flatts’s “Why Wait” at No. 20, Taylor Swift’s “Mine” at No. 21, Brad Paisley’s “Anything Like Me” at No. 26, and Luke Bryan’s “Someone Else Calling You Baby” at No. 29.

Soon to be joining them and competing for top-of-the-chart space is Zac Brown Band’s “As She’s Walking Away.” With a little vocal assistance from Alan Jackson, the Georgia group’s latest picks up over 600 new spins and the biggest debut of the week at No. 39. Also making big debuts are Dierks Bentley’s “Draw Me A Map” at No. 49 and Burns & Poe’s “How Long Is Long Enough” at No. 58.

Rascal Flatts' Nothing Like This Tour rolled through Columbus last weekend for a performance at Crew Stadium. Backstage before the show the band presented WCOL/Columbus with plaques recognizing ten years of support. (L-R): WCOL PD John Crenshaw, Gary LeVox, WCOL MD Dan E. Zuko, Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus.
