Top 10 Notes

Sam Hunt's "Leave The Night On" sits at #6 but there's a very good chance it could sneak to #1 next week thanks to his album Montevallo hitting stores (chances are a few of the tracks will debut/return to the Top 30 rundown (while the album is likely to debut at #1 on the Country album sales chart).

    Those are some sad sales totals this week. I know that's across the industry though, as a couple of weeks back only the Top Three Digital Songs all formats combined sold 100,000 downloads or more. I am really hoping for a turn around, and sooner rather than later.
