Weekly Chart Report (3/30/2012)

Arista Nashville’s Kristen Kelly played her debut single, “Ex Old Man” at WDSY on a recent run through Pittsburgh. (L-R): Stoney Richards (MD), Kelly, and Mark Anderson (Operations Manager of CBS)

Luckily for Blake Shelton, programmers have not heeded the advice of his single “Drink On It.” Instead of mulling things over with a beer or cocktail, CountryBreakout panelists have pushed the song upward and onward to become the new No. 1 song this week with a total of 3588 spins. Of course, there might soon be tension at casa Shelton, with Miranda Lambert’s “Over You” inching near the top of the chart at No. 4. Lee Brice’s “A Woman Like You” is now at No. 5, marking his second Top 5 hit as an artist.

Dierks Bentley’s “5-1-5-0” is the chart’s highest debut, landing at No. 67 with an impressive gain of 329 spins. 5-1-5-0, in case you weren’t aware, is California police code for a mentally deranged person. Van Halen memorably used it as a 1986 album title, and now Dierks carries on the tradition with his tale of an irresistible siren that makes him crazy. Also debuting are Martina McBride’s “Marry Me” with Train singer Pat Monahan at No. 77, Lea Seawright’s “‘Til Your Boots Are Dirty” at No. 79, and Susan Cattaneo’s “Little Big Sky” at No. 80.
