Call the po-po, it’s Dierks Bentley’s “5-1-5-0” taking over the CountryBreakout Chart’s No. 1 spot after 13 weeks of reports. Just 70 spins back at No. 2 is Brantley Gilbert’s “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” followed by The Band Perry’s “Postcard From Paris” at No. 3. It’s a tight top 10 and though most are gaining spins, only Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over” sees forward movement from No. 8 to 6.
Quickly climbing toward the top is Little Big Town’s “Poontoon,” which adds another 254 spins this week and moves to No. 17. Also looking strong are Big & Rich’s “That’s Why I Pray” at No. 32 and Zac Brown Band’s “The Wind” at No. 33. And living up to its title is Miranda Lambert’s “Fastest Girl In Town,” which is already up to No. 40 in only its second week charting.
This chart edition sees the return of Aaron Lewis’ “Endless Summer,” which debuts at No. 70. The single originally had a few weeks of airplay under R&J Records, and now the gang over at Blaster Records (along with Skip Bishop) has rebooted it just in time for the heat. Also debuting are Casey James’ “Cryin’ On A Suitcase” at No. 76 and Michael Dean Church’s “That’s How We Roll” at No. 79.

Tony Thomas has departed his on-air position with Dial Global’s “Country Today” format, as the company is restructuring and closing its Seattle offices. Thomas joined the company in March following 22 years with KMPS/Seattle. “It’s been a real pleasure working with Melody Morgan, John Paul, Beau Phillips and the other Country Today jocks; along with the terrific Dial Global Seattle crew (special thanks to Susan Stephens and Tim Maranville),” says Thoams. His final day was last Friday (6/15) and he can be reached at [email protected] and 206-792-9082.
