Country Chart News – The Top 30 Digital Singles – January 22, 2014: Luke #1; Hunter Hayes “Invisible” Debuts Top 10

This week’s Top 30 Digital singles finds a lot of familiar faces inside the Top 30 with new singles from Rascal Flatts and Brantley Gilbert making thier way up the chart while Luke Bryan holds onto #1 yet again with “Drink A Beer” while Hunter Hayes, Chuck Wicks, Keith Urban & Taylor Swift debut new tracks.

Eric Church dominates Sales Chart with “Give Me Back My Hometown.” Single takes over #1 after debuting at #12 last week.

After just one week outside of #1, Luke Bryan’s back on top with the powerful ballad “Drink A Beer” is back on top but just barely as it outsold Rascal Flatts’ “Rewind” by less than 2,000 actual tracks. Brantley Gilbert is up to #3 with “Bottoms Up.” The single is the lead track from his upcoming sophomore album for The Valory Music Co. (and third overall). David Nail’s “Whatever She’s Got” is at #4 with sales of 40k this week while Cole Swindell’s “Chillin’ It” rounds out the Top 5 with sales now over ¾ a million.

With just a few hour’s time, Hunter Hayes fans help the star score a Top 10 debut with “Invisible” after song is released post-Grammy performance.

Sitting at #6 this week is last week’s #1 Digital Single, “Give Me Back My Hometown” from Eric Church. In just three week’s he’s sold 124k copies of the tune. Hunter Hayes needed only a few hours to have “Invisible” debut inside the Top 10 at #7 with sales of 35k tracks (he will likely sell that or more this week where it’s still #1 on iTunes Top Country Songs chart and #9 on the All-genre chart. If it holds there all week, the song will shoot to #1 or #2 next week. Sitting at #8 is the nearly Gold “When She Says Baby” from Jason Aldean. #9 is Florida Georgia Line’s “Stay.” Rising into the Top 10 this week is Kacey Musgraves with the Grammy-aided support bringing the single 34 slots over last week’s placement. “Follow Your Arrow” sold 28k (18k more than last week) to hold this slot. It is our “Riser of the Week.”

Notable Singles include Eric Paslay’s “Friday Night,” Keith Urban’s “Cop Car,” Cassadee Pope’s “Wasting All These Tears” and Scotty McCreery’s “See You Tonight.”

Eric Paslay’s album just went up for Presale last week and already is garnering buzz with the attention it is getting and that certainly helped Top 5 Radio Airplay hit “Friday Night” jump 10k in sales to land the #12 overall slot this week and our first notable mention. Blake Shelton’s latest “Doin’ What She Likes” follows next with a 36% boost and sales now over 117k for the fourth single from Based On a True Story…. Jon Pardi’s “Up All Night” has now sold nearly 450k to date and should surpass the 500k sold (GOLD) mark in two or three weeks. Cassadee Pope is at #20 with “Wasting All These Tears.” she’s sold 931k copies of the single to date and it holds another week at #10 on the Airplay charts while Keith Urban’s latest, “Cop Car” jumps into the Top 30 with sales 13k more than last week. Chuck Wicks debuts at #22 with “Us Again,” the lead single from his upcoming album for Blaster Records. at #26 is Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well,” a Grammy-related bump that helped the track jump over 17k downloads. The track has ‘only’ sold 169k to date (which is still remarkable for a deep cut on an album but maybe not for the best-selling ‘Country’ digital artist of all time).
