Weekly Chart Report (5/25/2012)

Brad Paisley got to visit with Hank-FM/WLHK PD, Bob Richards (L), before Saturday's Virtual Reality Tour stop in Indianapolis. Between tour stops, Paisley is also in the studio working on his upcoming album project.

It’s like the Wild West out here this week–anything goes. We’ve got a new CountryBreakout No. 1 with Carrie Underwood’s “Good Girl” and serious movement all over the chart. Dierks Bentley’s “5-1-5-0” picks up 276 spins and leaps 11-6, with sights set on the top of the chart. The Band Perry’s “Postcard From Paris” is just a couple ticks behind at No. 7. Also new to the top 10 are Alan Jackson’s “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore” at No. 9 and Keith Urban’s “For You” at No. 10.

Things get even wilder near the middle of the chart. Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over” is already to No. 33 in its second week charting, earning a staggering 644 spin gain. Both Blake Shelton’s “Over” (No. 21) and Lady Antebellum’s “Wanted You More” (No. 26) gained more than 400 spins. Newcomer Greg Bates adds over 250 new spins to his “Did It For The Girl,” which flies up to No. 31. Also moving quickly: Lee Brice’s “Hard To Love” (No. 41), Jake Owen’s “The One That Got Away” (No. 42), Rascal Flatts’ “Come Wake Me Up” (No. 47), and Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” (No. 50).

New to the chart this week is the very timely “Military Man,” from Show Dog-Universal new artist Jessie James. She will head into the Memorial Day weekend at No. 57. Behind her and leading a huge pack of new singles are Heidi Newfield’s “Why’d You Have To Be So Good” at No. 69, Craig Wayne Boyd’s “I Ain’t No Quitter” at No. 70, and Glen Templeton’s “Sing That Song Again” at No. 71.
