Weekly Chart Report (4/22/11)

Atlantic/WMN artist Hunter Hayes (L) started his radio tour through Texas Monday with a stop into KKBQ/Houston. He met with PD Johnny Chiang, and the two seem to have really hit it off, if their pearly white smiles are any indication. Hayes’ debut single “Storm Warning” goes for adds May 16.

The results are in, and the people can’t live without Keith Urban’s “Without You.” Urban’s latest takes over the No. 1 spot most recently occupied by Rascal Flatts’ “I Won’t Let Go.” It’s going to get very tight in the next few weeks, as the barrage of superstar singles all fight for position. The Top 10 alone contains Kenny Chesney, Ronnie Dunn, The Band Perry, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift and more. Expect to see them getting competition from Eric Church’s “Homeboy” (No. 13), Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl” (No. 14), and Chris Young’s “Tomorrow” (No. 15) very soon.

The lovefest for Blake Shelton continues, as “Honey Bee” again picks up the week’s greatest increase in spins, which propels it on to No. 23 in its third week charting. Jason Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem” may be a topic of discussion because of its rap-inflected verses, but you’d never know it from looking at the chart. This week it collects 423 new spins and makes a huge jump to No. 39. Also seeing big response is Jake Owen’s latest, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.” The summer-ready anthem packs on 351 extra spins to move to No. 43.

Big debuts include Sugarland’s “Tonight,” which lands at No. 65, Rodney Atkins’ “Take A Back Road” at No. 73, Brantley Gilbert’s “Country Must Be Country Wide” at No. 74 and Stealing Angels’ “Paper Heart” at No. 75.
