Weekly Chart Report (7/29/11)

MCA’s Kip Moore (“Mary Was The Marrying Kind”) dropped by the KEGA studios in Salt Lake City (L-R): KEGA MD Jon Watkins, Moore, KEGA PD Alan Hague

Third time continues to be a charm for Lady Antebellum, whose “Just A Kiss” earns its third consecutive week at No. 1 on the CountryBreakout Chart. Inching toward the top on its heels are Zac Brown Band’s “Knee Deep” at No. 2, Trace Adkins’ “Just Fishin’” at No. 3 and Kenny Chesney’s “You and Tequila” at No. 4. But seeing as how Toby Keith’s “Made In America” just piled on 232 new spins and jumped 8-5, it could shoot right past some of these titles in the next week.

Montgomery Gentry has a new label home in Average Joe’s, and radio clearly hasn’t lost its love for the hitmaking duo. Eddie and Troy’s latest, “Where I Come From” had a big debut at No. 63 last week, and it’s already moved on up to No. 44 following a gain of nearly 300 spins. That puts them right behind labelmate Corey Smith, whose “Twenty One” is at No. 41.

New debuts for the week include Justin Moore’s “Bait A Hook” at No. 69, Mark Willis’ “Crazy Bein’ Home” at No. 79, and Teea Goans’ “Letter From God” at No. 80.
