Weekly Chart Report (1/06/12)

Cimsound Records Recording Artist Ricky Fugitt recently stopped by KVWF/100.5 the Wolf in Wichita to promote his upcoming shows and debut new single "One More Day"(L-R): Cimsound’s Jeff Parker, Fugitt, KVWF MD/Mornings Colby Ericson

That seemed like a quick holiday break, right? Regardless, it’s out with the old and in with the new on the first CountryBreakout Chart of 2012.

Spins for new singles like Blake Shelton’s “Drink On It” (debuting at No. 33), Lady Antebellum’s “Dancin’ Away With My Heart” (No. 22), and Miranda Lambert’s “Over You” (No. 32) are way up—over 600 spins gained versus the previous chart for all three, in fact. Equally impressive are Taylor Swift’s “Ours” (No. 14), Eli Young Band’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” (debuting at No. 44), Keith Urban’s “You Gonna Fly” (No. 7), and Tim McGraw’s “Better Than I Used To Be” (No. 28) which all experienced spin increases of 400 or more.

So it’s an explosive chart situation this week, save for the top two positions. Luke Bryan’s “I Don’t Want This Night To End” closed out 2011 in the No. 1 spot, and opens 2012 on top. Just over 100 spins behind in dogged pursuit is The Band Perry’s “All Your Life,” now at 21 weeks young but still showing plenty of health after a 99 spin gain. Dierks Bentley’s “Home” is still moving at No. 3, followed by Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” at No. 4 and Kenny Chesney’s “Reality” at No. 5.

In addition to the Shelton and EYB debuts, there are a plethora of new songs appearing this week. Kellie Pickler’s “100 Proof” makes a fine showing at No. 56, and so do Josh Turner’s “Time Is Love” at No. 64 and Josh Thompson’s “Comin’ Around” at No. 69.
