Following a small shakeup at the top of the CountryBreakout Chart, The Band Perry’s “All Your Life” emerges as the new No. 1 song after 23 weeks. This is the trio’s third overall No. 1 on our chart, after “You Lie” and their breakout smash “If I Die Young.” Perennial hitmakers Keith Urban (“You Gonna Fly”), Dierks Bentley (“Home”), and Kenny Chesney (“Reality”) are clustered together in spots 2-4, a margin of 17 spins separating highest from lowest. Anything can happen in the next chart.

Country radio has really taken to Rascal Flatts’ new release “Banjo.” The first single from the group’s upcoming album Changed, “Banjo” strummed up nearly 600 new spins in its second week charting and jumped to No. 33. Just ahead at No. 32 is Kellie Pickler’s “100 Proof,” already at No. 32 after three weeks and gaining quickly. New to the chart this week with no prior reports are Alan Jackson’s “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore” at No. 57, Zac Brown Band’s “No Hurry” (a James Otto co-write) at No. 68 and Kelly Parkes’ “Don’t Make Me” at No. 73
