Weekly Chart Report (9/03/10)


Lofton Creek/Edge Recording artist Kelly Parkes was a guest on Barry Kent's morning show on WTHI/Terre Haute, Indiana this past week. Parkes is on the road promomoting her new single "Nothing Good Ever Happens After Midnight."

Lady Antebellum’s “Our Kind Of Love” is still feeling the love from radio as it earns a fourth consecutive week in the CountryBreakout No. 1 spot. Positions 2-6 are closing the gap, but remain unchanged for now. In fact the only movement in the top 10 comes courtesy of The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young,” which moves 8-7 and Reba’s “Turn On The Radio,” which jumps 11-8.

If the chart feels tight right now, just wait until the pack of new superstar singles reaches the Top 10. At positions 11-13, Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts and Sugarland are already clumped together and charging forward with large spin gains. On the way a few positions back are Brad Paisley’s “Anything Like Me” at No. 19, Luke Bryan’s “Someone Else Calling You Baby” at No. 21, Zac Brown Band’s “As She’s Walking Away” with Alan Jackson at No. 25, and Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda Party” at No. 28.

Programmers have also quickly responded to new tracks by sometime associates Jamey Johnson and James Otto. Johnson’s “Playing The Part” debuted last week at No. 70, and makes a giant leap to No. 53 with a gain of 173 spins. Otto’s brand new “Soldiers & Jesus” made its debut this week at No. 64, gaining 201 spins in the process. Also debuting in this chart edition are Badhorse’s “Mississippi Rain” at No. 76, Jaron & TLRTL’s “That’s Beautiful To Me” at No. 77, and Richie Fields’ “Wichita” at No. 80.
