Sometimes it’s a long ride to the top of the MusicRow Chart, but that’s definitely not the case for Jason Aldean’s “Take A Little Ride,” which moves into the No. 1 spot after only 11 weeks. Luke Bryan’s “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” moves up to No. 2 and within 100 spins of Aldean. It’s an intriguing mix of new and established stars in this top 10, from Rascal Flatts at No. 3 (“Come Wake Me Up”) and Tim McGraw at No. 6 (“Truck Yeah”) to Greg Bates at No. 7 (“Did It For the Girl”) and Florida Georgia Line at No. 9 (“Cruise”).

Newcomers also making headway include Joanna Smith, whose “We Can’t Be Friends” hit monitored radio recently and now moves up to No. 13; and Jon Pardi, whose “Missin’ You Crazy” is still gaining spins at No. 15. Thomas Rhett’s “Beer With Jesus” is off to a great start at No. 29 after only 5 weeks, and Miss Willie Brown’s “You’re All That Matters to Me” is picking up some steam at No. 35.

But the biggest splash this week is Brad Paisley’s new single “Southern Comfort Zone.” Released to radio late last Thursday after the MusicRow chart closed, Paisley’s latest had a whole week to pick up spins and earned a huge debut at No. 38. Kudos, folks. Other debuts include Lisa Torres’ “Car That Runs” at No. 78 and Taylor Swift’s latest “Begin Again,” which hits No. 79 and will almost certainly leap next week.
