Every once in awhile, you land a big one. Trace Adkins has done just that with “Just Fishin’,” which ascends to No. 1 by jumping over Zac Brown Band’s “Knee Deep.” The big man’s latest gains 72 spins in its 21st week charting with 98 stations on board. Also advancing are Kenny Chesney’s “You and Tequila” at No. 3, Toby Keith’s “Made In America” at No. 4, and the Paisley/Underwood juggernaut “Remind Me” at No. 5.
Fishing is a pretty common theme for the summer country singles climbing the current chart. Bigger Picture’s Craig Campbell is promoting his second single, “Fish,” which moves to No. 33 with a gain of 160 spins. Newcomer Kelly Parkes is at No. 45 with “Girl With A Fishing Rod.” Right behind and red hot is Justin Moore’s “Bait A Hook,” which reels in 322 new spins and moves to No. 48.
Speaking of red hot, there are big debuts from The Band Perry and Miranda Lambert. TBP’s “All Your Life” is the fourth single from the group’s self-titled Republic Nashville album, and clocked in at No. 62 for the week’s highest debut. “Baggage Claim” is the first single from Lambert’s anticipated Four The Record album due November 1, and programmers spun it enough out of the box to earn the No. 69 spot with no prior reports.
Our thoughts and best wishes are with KBOE/Oskaloosa, IA PD Steve Shettler, whose mother recently suffered a stroke. According to Shettler, she’s showing hopeful signs of progress in the last few days. Reach out to him here.
