Weekly Chart Report (1/21/11)

Lee Brice visited with NashvilleCountryClub.com's Editor Leslie Armstrong to discuss his current single "Beautiful Every Time."

SPIN ZONE
Three weeks into 2011, we are starting to see some movement on the CountryBreakout Chart. Luke Bryan’s long, patient climb with “Someone Else Calling You Baby” is rewarded by finally ascending to the No. 1 position. Bryan has over 150 spins on the No. 2 song, Blake Shelton’s “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” but look to see it challenging the top spot soon, competing with Lady Antebellum’s No. 4 “Hello World” and Taylor Swift’s No. 5 “Back To December.”

Elsewhere, newly released singles are starting to pop as programmers move older titles into lighter rotations. Miranda Lambert’s “Heart Like Mine” gets a big boost, moving 35-27. Similarly, Zac Brown Band’s “Colder Weather” leaps up to No. 29, and Rascal Flatts is close behind at No. 32 with “I Won’t Let Go.” Also quickly advancing is The Band Perry’s “You Lie,” which makes a 54-37 jump in its third week.

Reba’s “If I Were A Boy” earns a huge debut, landing at No. 52 for its first appearance. In the final slot at No. 80 is sister trio Carter’s Chord, whose just-released “A Little Less Comfortable” picked up 120 spins to sneak on the chart. Also debuting are Jayme Lynn Scott’s “No Explainin’ Love” at No. 75, Sandra Piller’s “Days Like These” at No. 78, and LeAnn Rimes’ “Crazy Woman” at No. 79.

(L-R): Brett Eldredge, WDSY PD Stoney Richards, John Oates and Warner Music Nashville Pres./CEO John Esposito at the Pittsburgh Steelers v. Baltimore Ravens playoff game.
