Weekly Chart Report (1/13/12)

Alan Jackson recently flew into Philadelphia to visit WXTU in support of his new single "So You Don't Have To Love Me Anymore." (L-R): WXTU PD Shelly Easton, Jackson

It’s good to be on top, but also tough work to defend your territory week after week. But Capitol’s Luke Bryan has successfully done that for three consecutive weeks now with “I Don’t Want This Night To End,” which is newly certified Gold for downloads. Bryan’s song takes a tiny dip in spins this week, and leaving The Band Perry’s “All Your Life” well positioned to earn the siblings another No. 1 next week. Making a big leap to No. 3 is Chris Young’s “You,” which gained an extra 193 spins to zoom ahead of Keith Urban’s “You Gonna Fly,” Dierks Bentley’s “Home,” and Kenny Chesney’s“Reality.”

Things are back to being slow in this chart edition, with Lady Antebellum’s “Dancin’ Away With My Heart” the lone new entrant to the Top 20. Help might be on the way in the form of Blake Shelton’s “Drink On It,” the week’s greatest spin increase, which is now at No. 27. The other half of the Shelton household, Miranda Lambert, is just a shade behind her husband at No. 30 with “Over You.” And Eli Young Band’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” is finding a spot on numerous playlists, rocketing up to No. 34 after a 281 spin gain.
