Weekly Chart Report (8/24/2012)

Matt and Barry of Stoney Creek Records’ Parmalee stopped by Renegade Radio Nashville on Wednesday, August 22 for a live interview with Captain Jack (center). Parmalee’s “Musta Had a Good Time” is currently No. 55 on the CountryBreakout Chart.

Industry servants in Nashville got to hear a performance of Little Big Town’s new album Tornado (due Sept. 11) earlier this week, and excitement over the collection is definitely warranted. For the next couple of weeks, anyway, the public will have to keep grooving to “Pontoon,” which holds at No. 1 on the CountryBreakout Chart for a fourth week. Nearly 600 spins back at No. 2 is Lady Antebellum’s “Wanted You More,” followed by Zac Brown Band’s “The Wind” at No. 3, Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah” at No. 4, and Miranda Lambert’s “Fastest Girl In Town” at No. 5.

It’s going to be an interesting battle for the top spot when “Pontoon” finally floats away. Hunter Hayes has been on a tear lately, and his “Wanted” now sits right behind McGraw at No. 6 after gaining 337 spins. Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” makes a big move up to No. 8. Jason Aldean’s “Take A Little Ride” ascends to No. 10, and Eric Church’s “Creepin’” takes a big step to No. 14. And Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” is indeed huge. Two weeks on the chart, and already up to No. 25.

Leading the new songs this week is Clay Walker’s “Jesse James,” which debuts at No. 74, followed by Katie Armiger’s “Better In A Black Dress.” Other new tunes include The Wheeler Sisters’ “This Is Gonna Get Ugly” at No. 77, Zach Paxson’s “Good Luck With That” at No. 78, Craig Morrison’s “Fences” at No. 79, and Kevin Fowler’s “Here’s To Me And You” at No. 80.
