Weekly Chart Report (10/05/12)

Danny Bell (R) of Way Out West Records’ LiveWire recently threw the horns with KKOW/Pittsburg, KS personality J-Dub (L) while promoting the band’s new single “Lies” and a concert in the area.

Sorry ladies, it’s all about the men this week. Luke Bryan nabs the No. 1 spot with “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye,” followed by Eric Church’s “Creepin’” and Lee Brice’s “Hard to Love.” New faces and label mates Greg Bates and Florida Georgia Line are moving upward through the top 10 at No. 6 and 8, respectively, while Toby Keith is right behind at No. 9 with “I Like Girls Who Drink Beer.”

And there’s nary a female in sight, at least until you get down to Joanna Smith’s “We Can’t Be Friends” at No. 14. Other than that, only the two-thirds female Edens Edge at No. 19 joins Smith in the top 20. Also keep an eye out for Kelleigh Bannen’s “Sorry On The Rocks,” picking up speed at No. 29, and the buzzed-about Kacey Musgraves single “Merry Go Round,” currently at No. 41.

It’s a time for big superstar singles to roll out. Brad Paisley’s “Southern Comfort Zone” is just two weeks on the chart, and already up to No. 24 with a 624 spin increase. Zac Brown Band’s “Goodbye In Her Eyes” jumps to No. 30, and Little Big Town’s “Tornado” spins up to No. 35. Taylor Swift’s “Begin Again” is also off to a fantastic start, hitting No. 39 in its second week on the chart.
