Weekly Chart Report (10/22/10)

Mercury's Easton Corbin (R) at the KSSN/Little Rock studios with morning man Bob Robbins (L).

SPIN ZONE
His latest album Charleston SC 1966 was released last week, and Darius Rucker’s “Come Back Song” is still the CountryBreakout Chart’s No. 1 song for a fifth consecutive week. Taylor Swift’s new album Speak Now streets next Tuesday (10/25), and its first single “Mine” is perched at No. 2. Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” slips slightly to No. 3, followed by The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young” and Rascal Flatts’ “Why Wait.”

It’s still a very tight chart, with Justin Moore’s “How I Got To Be This Way” the only new song in the Top 10 and Tim McGraw’s “Felt Good On My Lips” the only new entry to the Top 20. But that should be changing soon, as a group of superstar singles is rapidly climbing through the 20s. Toby Keith’s “Bullets In The Gun” moves 26-22 after a gain of 271 spins, followed by Lady Antebellum’s “Hello World” at No. 25, and Blake Shelton’s “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking” at No. 26.

As older singles begin to drop out of sight, space should start to open up for the latest releases. Look for chart appearances soon from Ashley Gearing’s “What Do You Think About Us,” Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Country Strong,” The Dirt Drifters’ “Something Better,” and Josh Turner’s “I Wouldn’t Be A Man.”
