Movement is the name of the game on the CountryBreakout Chart, and there’s no shortage of it this week. Moving up to take the No. 1 spot is Blake Shelton’s “God Gave Me You,” followed by Thompson Square’s “I Got You,” hopping over No. 3 to land at No. 2. Taylor Swift’s “Sparks Fly” is also in the hunt at No. 3, as it garners an added 186 spins. Also moving are Brantley Gilbert’s “Country Must Be Country Wide” at No. 5, Miranda Lambert’s “Baggage Claim” at No. 7, and Rascal Flatts’ “Easy” at No. 9.

Through the Top 30 are several additional movers and shakers. Jason Aldean’s “Tattoos On This Town” is knocking on the door of the Top 20 at No. 21 after six weeks, and Montgomery Gentry’s “Where I Come From” picks up 121 spins at No. 23. It’s a dead heat between Zac Brown Band’s “Keep Me In Mind” and Luke Bryan’s “I Don’t Want This Night To End,” at No. 27 and 28 respectively. Just a few paces off at No. 30 is Chris Young’s “You,” which appears to be out-gaining all the rest.

Dierks Bentley leads a group of big debuts with his latest single “Home,” sticking at No. 59 in its first week being reported. Also in its first week of reports is Jake Owen’s “Alone With You,” which debuts at No. 77 after a 210 spin gain. Just ahead is Trent Tomlinson’s “A Man Without A Woman,” debuting at No. 75 after scooping up an impressive 20 new adds.
