Following a big night at the ACM Awards, Miranda Lambert’s “Heart Like Mine” eases into the CountryBreakout Chart’s No. 1 spot. Rascal Flatts moves up to No. 2 with “I Won’t Let Go,” followed by Kenny Chesney’s “Live A Little” at No. 3, Ronnie Dunn’s “Bleed Red” at No. 4 and Keith Urban’s “Without You” at No. 5.

ACM Awards co-host Blake Shelton also gets the post Awards bump. He debuted his new single “Honey Bee” on the show, and country radio was ready. It’s easily the biggest debut of the week at No. 55, amassing nearly 500 spins with no prior reports. Also feeling the love is Blake’s co-host Reba, whose “When Love Gets A Hold Of You” moves to No. 57. Other show performers Martina McBride and Dierks Bentley fare well, with McBride’s “Teenage Daughters” moving to No. 27 and Bentley’s “Am I The Only One” jumping to No. 34.

After a short break, Gloriana is back on the chart with an uptempo tune called “Wanna Take You Home,” landing at No. 75. Also impacting this week are Jason Campbell’s “Albuquerque” at No. 76 and James Wesley’s “Didn’t I” at No. 79. Slightly below the No. 80 threshold is the trio of Randy Houser’s “In God’s Time,” Corey Smith’s “Twenty One” and Jason Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem,” which are poised to make a splash in the next week or two.
