It’s gridlock at the top of the CountryBreakout Chart as Trace Adkins’ “Just Fishin’” notches a second week at No. 1. But Toby Keith’s “Made In America” is only down 28 spins at No. 2, followed by Kenny Chesney’s “You And Tequila” only 14 spins below Toby at No. 3. But it’d be wise to keep an eye out for Brad Paisley/Carrie Underwood’s “Remind Me” in the next couple weeks. It’s red hot at No. 4 and still making triple digit spin increases. Jake Owen also has a hit on his hands with “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” which eases into the No. 5 spot.
Miranda Lambert’s “Baggage Claim” made a big impression last week when it debuted at No. 69. Now one of her fastest rising singles to date, the lead single from Four The Record has leapt up to No. 41 in its second week charting. Chasing Lambert are the siblings of The Band Perry, whose “All Your Life” picked up an additional 320 spins in its second week to move to No. 44.
Biggest debut of the week goes to EMI Nashville new face Eric Paslay. His first single “Never Really Wanted” makes its first appearance at No. 65 with a gain of 139 spins. Also debuting are Keith Bryant’s “Can’t Tell Somebody (Who To Love)” at No. 72, Cash Creek’s “Unlikely Angel” at No. 77, and Kevin Fowler’s “Hell Yeah, I Like Beer” at No. 79.
