    Where can you find music video numbers, since technically that is like buying the singles. My friends and I buy those instead of the singles a lot.

    • Matt Bjorke

      Those are part of digital streaming numbers. Most video sites and streaming sites give you numbers about streams. Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart is a good amalgam of streams, sales and radio airplay.

  • Brian Cole

    Thank you Matt! What are the numbers on Cruise now? Also, with streaming catching on and (unfortunately) pulling down sales, will Roughstock start reporting streaming numbers too?

    • Matt Bjorke

      If/when the time comes we will. Till then, we'll keep the singles going. "Cruise" sold roughly 8k more than it had last week.

    Why do you never mention Keith Urban's song Somewhere In My Car as a Notable Track? You list everything above and under but never Keith.
