Weekly Chart Report (9/16/11)

Blair Garner’s (L) “After MidNite Live” summer concert series will take listeners backstage to Brad Paisley’s H2O II: Wetter & Wilder World Tour this weekend at the 1-800-ASK-GARY Amphitheatre in Tampa, FL. The series gives listeners a behind-the-scenes account of what happens on the road with a superstar country concert. Special guests include Blake Shelton (pictured with Garner), Jerrod Niemann, JaneDear Girls, Sunny Sweeney and Edens Edge.

SPIN ZONE
It’s a perpetual party at the top of MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart, so it only makes sense that George Strait’s “Here For A Good Time” get to spend a little time at No. 1. This week the King’s latest single is blessed with an additional 175 spins and moves up from No. 2, staying ahead of Blake Shelton’s “God Gave Me You” which jumps up from No. 6. Right behind at No. 3 is Thompson Square’s “I Got You” and Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl” at No. 4.

New singles from young stars dot the chart’s Top 40, comprising many of the hottest upcoming tunes. Miranda Lambert’s “Baggage Claim” has already climbed to No. 11 in its seven week journey, faster than her previous releases. Lady Antebellum’s domination continues with “We Owned The Night,” up to No. 18 in its fifth week charting. That other hot new trio–The Band Perry–is two spots behind at No. 20 with “All Your Life” after only seven weeks. Also quickly rising are Eric Church’s “Drink In My Hand” at No. 21 (five weeks), Jason Aldean’s “Tattoos On This Town” at No. 28 (four weeks), Luke Bryan’s “I Don’t Want This Night To End” at No. 33 (three weeks), and Zac Brown Band’s “Keep Me In Mind” at No. 36 (two weeks).

Eric Lee Beddingfield (R) recently spent some time with WSM-AM host Bill Cody (L) to promote his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry. He performed his debut hit “The Gospel According to Jones” on the hallowed stage for George Jones’ 80th birthday celebration.

Indie-label new face Andy Gibson notches a big debut at No. 64 with “Wanna Make You Love Me” (R&J Records), thanks to a 150-spin gain. Montgomery Gentry and Phil Vassar might have major label pedigrees, but they’re both now working outside that world on smaller labels. MG’s “Where I Come From” is currently at No. 24, with Vassar’s “Let’s Get Together” right behind at No. 25. Sneaking in the Top 30 is the iconic Dolly Parton’s “Together You and I” (Dolly Records), followed by newcomer Rachel Holder’s “Chocolate” at No. 31 and Burns & Poe’s “Second Chance” at No. 32.
