Top 30 Digital Country Singles: July 8, 2015

This week's chart is mostly unchanged except for sales increases and Independence Day hits.

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. This means they now WILL break the record for most-consecutive weeks, for a country group, at #1 on the Hot Country Songs chart when that chart is published tomorrow. It'll be their 11th consecutive week at #1 on that chart. Meanwhile, Luke Bryan's Kick The Dust Up" still sits at #2 and has now scanned over 500k tracks making it yet another Gold (and likely Platinum) single for the superstar. Sam Hunt remains at #3 and #4 with his two latest hits but his current country radio hit "House Party" swaps places with "Take Your Time" (a song which is at #28 on the pop radio chart this week). Blake Shelton's "Sangria" rounds out the Top 5 yet again. He's now scanned 561k+ copies of the track.

Top 10 Notes

Thomas Rhett's "Crash and Burn" is at #6 with sales of 337k to date while Chris Janson's up to #7 with "Buy Me A Boat" now at 306k to date. Eric Church's "Like A Wrecking Ball" slides down but gains sales #s week over week and has now scanned 600k to date. Lee Greenwood's annual visit to the chart is kinda a cool one as his iconic 1980s patriotic anthem "God Bless The USA" has now scanned over 1,000,000 copies, making it eligible for Platinum status. Keith Urban surpasses the 100k mark with "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16."

Notable Track Notes

Jake Owen' "Real Life" has surpassed 100k, similarly, Kelsea Ballerini's "Love Me Like You Mean It" has surpassed 400k while Brett Eldredge "Lose My Mind" continues its sales rise. Michael Ray's "Kiss You In The Morning" sits at #18 with sales of 179k while Chris Young's "I'm Comin' Over" has scanned nearly 200k. Old Dominion surpass 200k with "Break Up With Him while Florida Georgia Line's Gold-certified "Sippin' On Fire" has now scanned 500k.

    Take Your Time now gets more than half of its airplay from non Country stations, which is good for its longevity. Girl Crush debuted on Mediabase's AC chart, but has yet to reach the Top 40 Chart. I have some concerns that if Top 40 doesn't pick up the Little Big Town track pretty quickly, the song will get lost through the cracks when Country radio drops it and Billboard shifts it into Hot 100 recurrency. I have to wonder if the labels will need to issue remixes at some point, though I am amazed at how well both songs have crossed over without them so far.

    • Matt Bjorke

      No remixes are needed unless "Girl Crush" gets a dance remix that will then be picked up by Pop. The song could be dormant from "pop" for a long while or they're waiting to fully push it there until it's finished at country.
