Weekly Chart Report (11/05/10)

Eric Lee Beddingfield (R) recently joined J. Brooks (L) in the studio at KSMA 98.7 Kiss Country Mason City, IA. Beddingfield was in town to play a few shows and open for Colin Raye.

There is movement at the top of the CountryBreakout Chart, as The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young” capitalizes on its 23 week climb by taking the No. 1 spot. Rascal Flatts’ “Why Wait” makes a big jump from No. 6 – 2, picking up 136 new spins in the process. Brad Paisley’s “Anything Like Me” moves 5 – 3, scooting ahead of Reba’s “Turn On The Radio” which holds at No. 4.

It’s still tough going for artists trying to reach the Top 20. Unless, of course, your name is Kenny Chesney. His latest “Somewhere With You” has the biggest spin gain of the week (565) and jumps 11 spots to No. 28 a few days ahead of its official add date. For others, it’s a slow grind. Chris Young’s “Voices” adds 120 spins, moving to 25 – 23 after 15 weeks. Similarly, Cody McCarver’s “I’m America” adds spins and moves up one spot to No. 27 after 21 weeks. Some older titles appear to be on the way out, so coming weeks should provide room for singles to grow.

After a slow beginning, Gwyneth Paltrow’s movie theme “Country Strong” suddenly has legs. It debuted at No. 79 in the previous chart, and makes an impressive leap to No. 66 this week. Also speedily moving upward is Josh Turner’s take on the Don Williams hit “I Wouldn’t Be A Man,” which moves to 78 – 62.
