Weekly Chart Report (10/26/12)

Taylor Swift sat down with After MidNite host Blair Garner to talk about all things "Red."

It’s new No. 1 song time, with Eric Church’s latest “Creepin’” into the MusicRow Chart’s top spot after a 17 week journey. Church is chased by a trifecta of Big Machine artists, including Rascal Flatts’ “Come Wake Me Up” at No. 2, Greg Bates’ “Did It For the Girl” at No. 3, and Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” at No. 4. Lee Brice’s “Hard to Love” is a few steps behind at No. 5. Only Darius Rucker’s “True Believers” is allowed entrance to the top 10 this week.

CMA Female Vocalist nominee Carrie Underwood brought her “Blown Away Tour” to Los Angeles last week, where she caught up with KKGO PD, Tonya Campos

Already knocking on the door of the top 10 are Kenny Chesney’s “El Cerrito Place” at No. 11 and Brad Paisley’s “Southern Comfort Zone” at No. 12. Both songs are under 10 weeks old. Also hot and new in the top 20 are Zac Brown Band’s “Goodbye in Her Eyes” at No. 14, Taylor Swift’s “Begin Again” at No. 16, and Little Big Town’s “Tornado” at No. 19. Expect to see Kacey Musgraves’ “Merry Go Round” and Gary Allan’s “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)” joining them very soon.

Hunter Hayes is also red hot right now and his latest single “Somebody’s Heartbreak” scored the most adds this week, jumping 75-54 with a 275 spin gain. Chris Young’s “I Can Take It From There” is also off to a great start, hitting No. 45 in its second week. New entries to the chart this week include Brantley Gilbert’s “More Than Miles” at No. 63, Josh Turner’s “Find Me a Baby” at No. 70, Randy Rogers Band’s “One More Sad Song” at No. 76, Eric Lee Beddingfield’s “That Ol Outlaw Song” at No. 79 and Sarah Darling’s “Home to Me” at No. 80.
