It’s one of those weeks. You know, one with chart gridlock slowing the movement for a significant portion of artists. But as Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” floats off to calmer waters, it’s labelmate Lady Antebellum who takes the No. 1 spot with “Wanted You More.” Within striking distance is Miranda Lambert’s “Fastest Girl In Town” which has made it to No. 2 in a very, um, fast 13 weeks. Zac Brown Band’s “The Wind” holds at No. 3, followed by new top 5 entries, “Wanted” by Hunter Hayes at No. 4 and “Blown Away” by Carrie Underwood at No. 5.

The biggest move inside the top 40 goes to Darius Rucker, whose “True Believers” moves 57-36 in its second week charting and nabs biggest spin increase honors in the process. Also navigating around the traffic jam are Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise,” moving into the top 20 at No. 17, and Luke Bryan’s “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye,” which gets a nice boost to No. 14.

The second half of the chart seems equally slow, with a couple notable exceptions. Thomas Rhett’s “Beer With Jesus” has caught the ears of programmers as it moves to No. 57 in its second week. The biggest debut of this chart is Tyler Farr’s “Hello Goodbye,” which lands at No. 73 after an increase of 96 spins.
