This week we find Sam Hunt holding down the #1 slot of the Top 30 Digital Country Singles chart for August 18, 2015 with "House Party," his third straight Gold or Platinum single from Montevallo. As great of a status that is for Sam, Luke Bryan is undoubtedly this week's chart leader with five tracks in the Top 30 this week but more on this note later. Sitting at #2 is Keith Urban's "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16." The single has now scanned 301k to date. At #3 is Thomas Rhett's "Crash And Burn." The single has scanned 549k to date while Chris Janson's "Buy Me A Boat," one of the songs of the summer for country music, has scanned 510k to date, giving the singer his first Gold single as an artist (he has one for co-writing "Truck Yeah" for Tim McGraw). Janson's debut album is being recorded and will be out this fall. Sitting at #5 is Luke Bryan's "Strip It Down." In 3 weeks, the single has scanned 108k.
