Weekly Chart Report (8/17/2012)

Since the first week in June, Flying Island’s Gwen Sebastian has been busy on her summer solo tour. With an appearance on NBC’s “The Voice” under her belt, her single, “Met Him In a Motel Room,” has risen up to No. 40 on this weeks’ CountryBreakout Chart. Gwen is pictured here with tourmate Kix Brooks.

Nothing can sink Little Big Town’s buoyant “Pontoon” right now. (And yes, I’ve got a hundred more bad puns for this one). The summer smash is cruising through a third week as the CountryBreakout Chart’s No. 1 song, even tacking on another 85 spins for good measure. Elsewhere in the top 10, Easton Corbin’s “Lovin’ You Is Fun” moves up to No. 5 and Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah” hops to No. 6. Miranda Lambert’s “Fastest Girl In Town” moves 11-8 and Hunter Hayes’ “Wanted” gets a big spin boost to go 14-10.

Other big movers include Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” which jumps from 17-13, followed by Jason Aldean’s “Take A Little Ride” at No. 14. Luke Bryan’s “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” gets a 31-27 bump, and his Capitol labelmate Dierks Bentley leaps 69-26 with “Tip It On Back.”

And hey, wasn’t there some kind of something that happened earlier this week? An announcement or something? Okay, now I’m just being silly. As expected, Taylor Swift’s shiny new single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” makes a big dent, debuting at No. 49 only four days after its release. Also earning strong debuts are Alan Jackson with “You Go Your Way” at No. 70 and Eli Young Band with “Say Goodnight” at No. 72.
