Little Big Town once again holds fort at #1 with "Girl Crush," a song which is Top 10 on country radio and Top 30 on the Adult Pop (Hot AC) radio chart, with sales now at 1.33 million. Not bad for a song that initially struggled with country radio despite massive sales. Luke Bryan's "Kick The Dust Up" is only days away from hitting Gold, something that'll happen in the 7th or 8th week of release. Given the divisive nature of the song, it's certainly living up to the power of stardom to drive sales. Speaking of star power, Sam Hunt has the #3 and #4 songs on this chart with "Take Your Time" at #3 with sales now at 1.42 million and rising hit "House Party" at 333k. "Time" is now making inroads at Pop, Hot AC and the AC charts where it's either Top 20 or Top 30 (or soon to chart). That means it'll likely stay on this chart for the foreseeable future. Rounding out the Top 5 of Country Music's Top 30 Digital Singles: Week of July 1, 2015 is the Gold-eligible "Sangria" from Blake Shelton. His albums may sell less than Luke Bryan and some other top tier stars but his singles sure are selling quite well. It'll be interesting to see if "Bringing Back The Sunshine" or something else are released as the fourth single from Bringing Back The Sunshine.
Top 10 Notes
Sitting at #6 is Eric Church's "Like A Wrecking Ball." The song has sold 562k to date. Thomas Rhett's "Crash And Burn" is at #7 with sales of 298k to date while Chris Janson's "Buy Me A Boat" is at #8 with 268k and it's just entering the Top 20 of radio (actually, both songs are bit Janson's is doing it with only 9 weeks of radio exposure and 12 weeks total of time from unsigned to Top 20). Kelsea Ballerini as at #9 with her recent smash radio hit "Love Me Like You Mean It." It has now scanned nearly 400k and it's fair to say it'll eventually be a Gold-certified single by the end of summer, if not sooner. Rounding out the Top 10 is "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16."
Notable Track Notes
Zac Brown Band's "Loving You Easy," Brett Eldredge's "Lose My Mind" and Jake Owen's "Real Life" all sit in the notable section (songs #11-30) of Country Music's Top 30 Digital Singles: Week of July 1, 2015 chart rundown.

The other new song in the Top 30 is Florida Georgia Line's "Anything Goes," which sits at 28 this week.
