SPIN ZONE
Darius Rucker’s “This” gets to enjoy a second week in the CountryBreakout Chart’s No. 1 spot, but it may not be for much longer. Miranda Lambert’s “Heart Like Mine” is pouring it on, adding 165 spins to move 4-2 and in excellent position to take the top spot next week. Possible threats to her ascent come courtesy of Rascal Flatts’ “I Won’t Let Go” at No. 4, and Ronnie Dunn’s “Bleed Red” which is already at No. 5 despite only being nine weeks old.

Reba joins the list of stars rolling out new singles for spring/summer airplay, as her latest “When Love Gets A Hold Of You” joins the chart at No. 74. Jake Owen’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” hits right behind at No. 76 with a big gain of 182 spins. Raking in the week’s biggest spin gain is Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl,” which scoops up 518 new spins and jumps nearly 20 spots to No. 35.

Also joining the chart are Tommy Steele’s “What Kind of Man Would I Be” at No. 75, Bridgette Tatum’s “Hillbilly Rock Star” at No. 79, and Edens Edge’s “Amen” at No. 80.
