Weekly Chart Report (11/9/12)

Josh Turner visited with syndicated host Whitney Allen at the DG studios during last week’s CMA Awards festivities.

When you set the car to “Cruise,” you just let it ride, man. And Republic Nashville duo Florida Georgia Line’s breakout hit maintains its speed for a second week as MusicRow’s No. 1 song, followed by label mate Greg Bates’ “Did It For the Girl” and Rascal Flatts’ “Come Wake Me Up.” Closing in are Kip Moore’s “Beer Money” at No. 4, Darius Rucker’s “True Believers” at No. 6, and Brad Paisley’s “Southern Comfort Zone” at No. 7.

Speaking of Republic Nashville, have a look at The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two.” The arena-sized murder ballad from the Perry siblings picks up the week’s biggest spin increase and launches from No. 55 to 28. “Better Dig Two” also leads the week in new adds with 42 stations pitching in. Also on the fast train to charttoppingsville are Hunter Hayes’ “Somebody’s Heartbreak” at No. 28 and Jason Aldean’s “The Only Way I Know How” with Eric Church and Luke Bryan, which pulls into the station at No. 36.

Leading the list of new songs is Toby Keith’s “Hope On the Rocks,” the title track to his latest album, which lands at No. 58. Toby also pulls in 23 new adds for the big debut. Others joining the chart include Lucky Ned Pepper’s “I Remember the Music,” John Karl’s “Redneck Rich,” Love and Theft’s “Running Out of Air,” and Logan Mize’s “Good Life.”
