Weekly Chart Report (10/27/11)





Skyville Records’ Trent Tomlinson (R) visits WUSH/Norfolk’s Brandon O’Brien (L) to share his new single “A Man Without A Woman,” which lands at No. 41 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart this week.




KYYK/Palestine, TX Music Director Amanda Hardy has departed her position with the station, which she joined in 2007. GM Lee Parkinson will handle music duties in the meantime. Hardy is seeking her next opportunity and can be reached here or at 903-330-5880.

It’s always exciting to see up-and-coming stars land a No. 1 song. Like Brantley Gilbert, for example, whose Valory Music debut “Country Must Be Country Wide” is the young artist’s first No. 1 song. Gilbert is 100 spins ahead of No. 2—ranking “We Owned The Night” by Lady Antebellum, which will probably soon own the top spot considering it’s only 11 weeks old. Also battling for chart supremacy is Miranda Lambert’s “Baggage Claim,” which edges up to No. 3.

A parade of largely male singles are gobbling up programmers’ spins as we head toward the CMA Awards and the ensuing holiday season. Dierks Bentley’s “Home” refuses to sit still for long, moving on to No. 18 after five weeks. Close behind are Kenny Chesney’s “Reality” at No. 20 and Brad Paisley’s “Camouflage” at No. 21. Toby Keith’s “unofficial” single “Red Solo Cup” has gotten everyone in the party spirit, and it jumps to No. 30 after two weeks. Keith Urban’s “You Gonna Fly” is also two weeks old, and swoops in at No. 34. One spot behind at No. 35 is Billy Currington’s three-week-old “Like My Dog.” New male singles charting ahead of their official add dates include Trace Adkins’ “Million Dollar View” at No. 55 and Rodney Atkins’ “He’s Mine” at No. 69.
