It’s new No. 1 song time, as Luke Bryan’s “Drunk On You” climbs into the CountryBreakout Chart’s top position after 14 weeks of airplay. Carrie Underwood’s “Good Girl” moves up to No. 2, followed by Eli Young Band’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” at No. 3. Brantley, Toby, Kip, and The Band Perry also gain spins inside the Top 10.

Blake Shelton’s “Over” is really on the move, leaping to No. 30 in its third week on the chart. Other new offerings by Lady Antebellum (“Wanted You More”), George Strait (“Drinkin’ Man”) and newcomer Greg Bates (“Did It For The Girl”) are also making quick work of the chart. Lee Brice’s “Hard To Love” and Jake Owen’s “The One That Got Away” are neck-and-neck at No. 55 and 56, respectively, after only two weeks.

Several big debuts are impacting the chart, beginning with Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over.” Chesney and Tim McGraw’s “Feel Like A Rock Star” is in the upper reaches of the chart, but his new solo effort rocketed up to No. 63 in its first week of reporting. Newcomers Florida Georgia Line also made an impression with summertime-ready single “Cruise,” which lands at No. 71. Rascal Flatts’ “Come Wake Me Up” gains 203 spins to hit No. 77, and Due West’s “Things You Can’t Do In A Car” picks up 184 spins to jump to No. 79.
