Weekly Chart Report (11/12/10)

(L-R): Martina McBride, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Faith Hill share a moment together at the Country Strong premiere afterparty in Nashville.

RADIO NEWS
Max Media’s WWBE/Sunbury, PA has moved midday host Shelly Marx to mornings to join Mark Roberts for its new “B98.3 Breakfast Bunch.” Afternoon Drive man Todd Steward will handle the midday slot, and Rick “RJ” Jordan will take on afternoon drive.

SPIN ZONE
After a tough battle for the CountryBreakout Chart’s No. 1 spot, Rascal Flatts’ “Why Wait” emerges as the new leader ahead of last week’s No. 1 “If I Die Young” by The Band Perry. Reba’s “Turn On The Radio” scoots up to No. 3, ahead of CMA Entertainer of the Year Brad Paisley’s “Anything Like Me.”

A handful of older singles are moving out, and that has created some space for newer songs to move up. Many titles in the Top 30 are seeing triple spin boosts, with Tim McGraw’s “Felt Good On My Lips” adding 294 spins and Kenny Chesney’s “Somewhere With You” tacking on 340. Just outside the Top 40, Frankie Ballard’s “Tell Me You Get Lonely” rebounds with a big gain of 134 spins and moves up to No. 44.

Taylor Swift’s latest single “Back To December” makes a huge debut at No. 57 in its first week of reporting with 501 spins. Darius Rucker manages a similar feat as “This” jumps on the chart at No. 70 in its first week. Also debuting this week are Eric Lee Beddingfield’s “The Gospel According To Jones” at No. 65 and Easton Corbin’s “I Can’t Love You Back” at No. 75.
