The Top 30 Digital Singles - August 20, 2014

This Week's Top 30 Digital Singles sales report features a lot of Sam Hunt.

The Top 10 from last week is virtually the same once again with the top 3 songs remaining in the same slots. For the fourth week in a row, Jason Aldean is "Burnin' It Down" at the #1 slot. The track is now officially Gold Eligible (it's at 499k tracks sold as of this report but has sold over that by now, surely). Florida Georgia Line's "Dirt" is at #2 with sales now over 600k, the same which can be sad about #3 single "American Kids" from Kenny Chesney. At #4 is Dierks Bentley's current radio airplay #1 "Drunk On A Plane." The single is now well on its way to Platinum (it surpassed 800k scanned this week. At #5 is last week's #4, "Hey Bartender" from Lady Antebellum. The tune has now been sold over 700,000 times.
