Country Chart News – The Top 30 Digital Singles – July 10, 2013: Florida Georgia Line, Chris Young, Tyler Farr, Brett Eldredge, Lee Greenwood, Lee Brice

Nine out of the Top 10 tracks of Country Music’s TOp 30 Digital Singles chart this week have held court in this Top 10 the past couple of weeks with Tyler Farr being the only newcomer to break the list (replasing Eli Young Band). Read on to see what stars made the Top 30 with their hits!

Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” once-again holds the pole position on the chart selling another 193k downloads of the track with record-breaking chart placement and well within sight of becoming the all-time best-selling Country single. The Top 6 songs are unchanged from last week.

The Top 5 songs chart is back in the exact same position as they were last week with 1.5m seller “Boys Round Here” #2 behind Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise,” (which will pass the 5m track sold mark next week). Hunter Hayes is #3 with the nearly-Platinum “I Want Crazy,” Darius Rucker’s nearly-Double Platinum “Wagon Wheel” is #4 and Luke Bryan’s nearly-Platinum “Crash My Party” (This week’s radio airplay #1 for a second week) is #5.

Randy Houser’s Gold “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” #6, Florida Georgia Line “Round Here” Rising Up Charts, Tyler Farr Joins Top 10 Country Download Tracks.

“Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” is now nearly 600k strong, helping the still-rising radio chart hit look like it is on an inevitable crash course with Platinum for the song’s singer Randy Houser. The track is followed on this week’s chart by Florida Georgia Line’s third chart hit “Round Here.” Very few artists are able to break inside the Top sellers as quick as the duo has look for our feature story on this rise to grace our pages later this week. The track has now sold 300k to date. Brett Eldredge’s “Don’t Ya” is Top 10 on the Airplay charts (a first for him) and also is the #1 Heatseeker track in all of music. The song has now sold 434k and is a week or two away from becoming the talented vocalist’s first Gold-certified single.  Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift’s “Highway Don’t Care” is slowly sliding down the charts but with 1.4 million sold, it has an outside shot at Double Platinum (2m downloads sold) before 2013 ends. Rounding out the Top 10 this week is another newcomer, Tyler Farr. The singer of “Redneck Crazy” has now sold 366k copies of his break-out hit, the lead single from his debut album of the same name for Columbia Records Nashville.

Riser of the Week: Lee Brice “Parking Lot Party” and Lee Greenwood’s Patrotic Anthem “God Bless The USA.”

There are no brand new singles on this chart this week — chalk that up to Independence Day — but an iTunes sale has helped Lee Brice’s latest hit “Parking Lot Party” hit the Top 11 with sales increasing 67% over last week. He’s now sold nearly 200k of the track without it even inside the Top 20. It should follow Hard 2 Love’s previous three  #1 charting Gold and/or Platinum singles “A Woman Like You,” “Hard 2 Love,” and “I Drive Your Truck.” Brice’s album should hit Gold sometime before the end of the single’s chart run as well. Thomas Rhett’s break-out hit is up the charts this week as well with sales now at 225k for “It Goes Like This” (a song co-written by his father Rhett Akins). Thomas Rhett is a co-writer of “Parking Lot Party” and “Round Here.” Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer” is nearing Gold-certification eligibility and should hit the mark sometime in the next two weeks while Lee Greewood’s seminal Patriotic anthem “God Bless The U.S.A.” rises 532% to enter this chart at #24. It has placed on this chart at some point in 138 different weeks. Finally, Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” rises back inside the Top 30 for the first time in months. The track has now sold over 2.2 million downloads in 59 weeks on the charts.

Outside The Top 30 Notes:

  • Sheryl Crow “Easy” is at #31 and has now sold 158k downloads.

  • Jason Aldean’s “Night Train” will likely hit the Top 30 next week as sales increases have the title track and current single from the album at #35 with 148k downloads.

  • Cole Swindell is at #37 and has surpassed the 100k download mark with “Chillin’ It.”

  • Blackjack Billy’s “The Booze Cruise” is at #38 with 58k sold to date.

  • Toby Keith’s “Courtesy of the Red White And Blue” hits #41 and has 1.12m downloads sold to date.

  • Colt Ford/Jason Aldean’s “Drivin’ Around Song” has scanned 208k to date, not bad for a song not played on radio outside of SiriusXM’s “The Highway” and some Georgia radio stations.

  • Taylor Swift “Red” is up 49% at #74 and has already sold 880k tracks to fans before the single even was offically a radio single.
