Weekly Chart Report (10/19/12)

After MidNite host and Dale Franklin Awards emcee Blair Garner (L) recently sat down with Darius Rucker to talk about his forthcoming CD and his recent Grand Ole Opry induction.

The girl may have gotten away, but Jake Owen finishes first in the latest MusicRow chart. “The One That Got Away” is the latest in a string of hit singles for the RCA Nashville star, and its journey up the chart took a steady 24 weeks. He’s followed by Eric Church’s “Creepin’,” Lee Brice’s “Hard to Love,” Rascal Flatts’ “Come Wake Me Up,” and Greg Bates’ “Did It For the Girl.” Also on the rise: Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” at No. 6, Toby Keith’s “I Like Girls That Drink Beer” at No. 7, Dierks Bentley’s “Tip It On Back” at No. 9, and Kip Moore’s “Beer Money” at No. 10. That’s a lot of drinking in the top 10.

Josh Turner (L) dropped by the KKGO/Los Angeles studios and chatted with Shawn Parr. Turner’s rising single “Find Me A Baby” lands “On Deck” this week.

Elsewhere we’ve got a few strong female singles on the way, led by Taylor Swift’s “Begin Again” at No. 21. Newcomer Kacey Musgraves has also got quite a buzz going with “Merry Go Round,” which moves to No. 26. One slot behind her at No. 27 is Kelleigh Bannen’s “Sorry on the Rocks,” which was recently played to enthusiastic response at the annual Capitol Street Party.

After a couple weeks of molasses-slow movement on the chart, there are a whole boatload of new singles. Chris Young is first among them with “I Can Take It From There” at No. 59. Joanna Mosca’s “Dream On Savannah” pops in at No. 71, followed by LiveWire’s “Lies” at No. 73, and Hunter Hayes’ “Somebody’s Heartbreak” at No. 75 poised to make a big impact next week. Additionally, there are first appearances by Michelle Cupit’s “I Know You’re Lying (Your Lips Are Moving),” One Night Rodeo’s “Real Good,” Lucky Ned Pepper’s “I Remember the Music,” and Tracy Lawrence’s “Stop Drop & Roll.”
