The Top 30 Digital Singles - September 25, 2014

Sam Hunt scores first Gold single this week and remains comfortably in the Top 5.

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.

    I am sorry to write back so quickly again, and in no way am I trying to be critical. I can see not wanting to rank "Cruise" or other over the top remixes anymore. However, I and many others I know personally liked seeing how many total downloads the chart'years biggest hits had received (like Luke Bryan's "Play It Again" Brantley Gilbert's "Bottoms Up") . As of last Saturday, when putting currents and re-currents together (with the process described in my previous comment), Luke Bryan's "Play It Again" ranked at #26, while Brantley Gilbert's "Bottoms Up" ranked #37, both well within the Top 50. Also, both of Florida-Georgia Line's remixes/mash-ups have fallen out of the Top 50. This is just a suggestion, and thank you for your time.

    Currents and Recurrents or just Currents? Are you counting currents and re-currents together for the Top 50? Due to most publications aggressive recurrency policy put in place to please the labels, an large majority of listeners feel these songs are recategorized as a recurrent way too fast. As a person who does a blog including all of the Rock and Country Formats, I used All Access/Mediabase data, rank currents and recurrents together, use all stations monitored by Mediabase (published or not), and rank by impressions. The overly-strict recurrency rules are why I started my blog. Mediabase and Billboard should at least try to meet in the middle to compromise between fans and labels, and leave the Top 15 alone.
