This week's chart is different than normal as it's based on the Top 30 digital songs within the Top 50 of the airplay chart. We hope you find this interesting as we feature quite a few songs that haven't been inside the standard Top 30 in quite a few weeks (if ever). Jason Aldean's "Burnin' It Down" is at #1 with 78k scanned. Florida Georgia Line is at #2 with 54k scanned for "Dirt while Kenny Chesney's "American Kids" is at #3. At #4 is the new single from Sam Hunt, "Leave The Night On." It is newly Gold. Rounding out the Top 5 is Blake Shelton's "Neon Light."
Top 10 Notes
Lady Antebellum's "Bartender" is at #6 with Luke Bryan's "Roller Coaster" at #7. Maddie & Tae's "Girl In A Country Song" single is one of only three female-driven tracks in the Top 10 (joining "Bartender" and #10 "Somethin' Bad" from Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood. Chase Rice is up to #9 with "Ready Set Roll."
Notable Track Notes
Some of the notable songs this week include the #1 song in all of country radio, Dustin Lynch's "Where It's At" at #11. Tim McGraw's new single "Shotgun Rider" debuts at #14 with 16k tracks downloaded while Keith Urban's "Somewhere In My Car" sits at #14. Big & Rich have rarely entered our rundowns so the fact that we're able to highlight their single "Look At You" (which has quietly sold 190k downloads) is one of the bonuses to this intriguing report.
Scotty McCreery actually breaks the Top 30 with his fast-rising radio hit "Feelin' It" while Parmalee and RaeLynn make appearances as well. Finally, Jake Owen's "What We Ain't Got" rounds out our notable list this week, his traditional ballad has sold 71k downloads to date and it's barely in the Top 40 at radio after just a few weeks on the radio chart.
