Country Chart News – The Top 30 Digital Singles: The Week of April 17 2013: Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes, Scotty McCreery, Brad Paisley Debut New Singles

This week’s Top 30 Digital Singles Sales Chart is loaded with massive-selling singles as Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes and Tim McGraw & Faith Hill all sell over 100,000 digital downloads of their current hits. Read on to find out how the Top 30 fared, including New Gold/Platinum Certs!

First (Full) Week Sales Numbers Strong for New Luke Bryan “Crash My Party” Single, Hunter Hayes’ “I Want Crazy” and Scotty McCreery’s “See You Tonight.” Florida Georgia Line Still Leads Chart with cumulative sales of “Cruise.”

Florida Gergia Line’s remix with Nelly helped “Cruise” remains #1 this week and sales of the remix help the culmulative numbers top at nearly 180,000 downloads this week. Luke Bryan’s “Crash My Party” scores a #2 placement this week (up 22 spots) thanks to a full week of sales. That was good enough to beat the all-genre chart which somehow breaks up the two “Cruise” tracks and gives Luke his first ever Top 5 digital single download and guarantees a high Billboard Hot 100 chart placement as well.

Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift’s “Highway Don’t Care” (which also features Keith Urban playing guitar) is McGraw’s third consecutive Gold-selling single from Two Lanes Of Freedom as it surpassed this sales mark this week with 115,000 fans buying a copy of the single. Hunter Hayes’ new single “I Want Crazy” storms up the charts to #4 with 110,000 fans taking home the album to give him 128,000 copies sold in just 8 days on the chart. Rounding out the Top 5 is Blake Shelton’s current single featuring The Pistol Annies and Friends, “Boys ‘Round Here.” That song has sold 222,000 copies in 3 weeks on the chart.

Blake Shelton “Cool” Platinum, “Downtown” and “If I Didn’t Have You” Gold for Lady Antebellum and Thompson Square, respectively.

Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” is not only Gold but well on its way to Platinum with sales now at 750,000 strong. Recent #1 Digital single “Wagon Wheel” from Darius Rucker still sold a mighty impressive 90,000 downloads last week to bring sales totals for the now Top 10 Country Airplay chart hit to 710,000. The Band Perry’s “DONE.” is #8 with sales at 224,000 after four weeks on the chart. Blake Shelton’s “Sure Be Cool If You Did” surpassed the Platinum mark for over 1,000,000 singles downloaded of the recent #1 airplay hit. Right behind him at #10 this week with “Downtown” is Lady Antebellum. The single is #1 on the Country Radio Airplay charts this week and it has surpassed the RIAA mark for Gold with single sales now over 500,000.

“Controversy” Helps Brad Paisley & LL Cool J Track “Accidental Racist” Debut at 16 on The Roughstock/SoundScan Top 30 Digital Singles Chart; Scotty McCreery Debuts On Chart With “See  You Tonight”

George Strait hits the Radio Airplay Top 10 this week with “Give It All We Got Tonight” scoring an impressive sales increase of 28% over last week while Scotty McCreery sells 46,000 singles to debut at #14 on this week’s chart while “Accidential Racist,” Brad Paisley’s controversial song with LL Cool J evoked enough curiosity for 43,000 fans to purchase the track. Thompson Square’s “If I Didn’t Have You” becomes the duo’s second RIAA certified single the recently certified Double Platinum“Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not.” “If I Didn’t Have You” is now officially eligible for Gold certification. Kelly Clarkson’s “Don’t Rush” was performed on last week’s ACM Awards and that helped the single jump 54% on this week’s chart while  Hunter Hayes “Wanted” and “Somebody’s Heartbreak” give the singer three osngs inside the Roughstock/SoundScan Top 30 Digital Singles chart. Finally, Nashville’s Lennon & Maisy’s version of “Ho Hey” looks to be hitting radio airplay soon with sales strong at 52,000 in two weeks.

Also of note, outside of the Top 30, Chase Rice’s “How She Rolls” sells 8,000 tracks and the singer’s set to be signed to a label very soon, following “Cruse” co-writers from SiriusXM and touring success to national success.
