Top 30 Digital Singles: October 19, 2015

Thomas Rhett (pictured) rises in sales this week but is joined by one (well-known) newcomer on our weekly look at the best-selling country singles!

Outside of the new song at #5 (more on that in a moment), the top 5 is unchanged from last week. The songs in the first through fifth slots remain in the same places though sales for some of them increased week over week, particularly the first place song, Thomas Rhett's "Die A Happy Man." The song gained 10k in downloads over last week. At #2 is Luke Bryan's "Strip It Down." It's roughly one week away from scanning Gold, the same which can be said for Cam's "Burning House," a song already certified Gold by the RIAA (last week). Speaking of Gold, Sam Hunt's "Break Up In A Small Town" is at #4 with 508k scanned (it was certified Gold this summer). Sitting at #5 is the lone newbie this week, Carrie Underwood's "Heartbeat." The single has scanned 23k thus far. It's from her album out friday, Storyteller.

Top 10 Notes

At #6 is Old Dominion with their nearly-Gold single "Break Up With Him" The single is off of their soon to hit stores album Meat And Candy.  Holding at #7 is Carrie Underwood's "Smoke Break." The single has now surpassed 202k downloads to date. At #8 is Chris Young's Gold-certified "I'm Comin' Over." The song has scanned 440k to date. #9 finds Chris Janson's breakout hit "Buy Me A Boat." The single has scanned 758k to date. Finally, Keith Urban's Gold "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16" is at #10 with 543k to date scanned.

Notable Track Notes

Brett Eldredge's "Lose My Mind" has scanned 391k to date, Jana Kramer's "I Got The Boy" is over 311k scanned while Brothers Osborne are nearly at a quarter of a million downloads for their hit "Stay A Little Longer." The only other newcomer on this chart this week is LOCASH with "I Love This Life" finally hitting the Top 30 download chart (as their single breaks even further in the Top 30 itself at radio).
