Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival Hit Nashville Hard

3+ Hours, Taylor Swift, Joe Walsh, Grace Potter, Uncle Kracker & David Lee Murphy Among the Surprises

Kenny Chesney – clad in a dark sleeveless Grace Potter and the Nocturnals t-shirt – hit Nashville like a house a-fire. From the opening of the New Orleans funeral drum corps/street preacher noir film until the last ringing note of Joe Walsh’s hard-charging “All Night Long,” the East Tennessean showed how much he missed the fans since he walked offstage after two sold-out nights at Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium in 2013.

Billboard Chart Roundup – Week of April 4th, 2015

We have a new #1 on Country Airplay once again this week, with the new title going to Cole Swindell’s ‘Ain’t Worth The Whiskey’. His former boss Luke Bryan is atop Top Country Albums too with ‘Spring Break… Checkin’ Out’, but the other charts are as usual devoted to our resident break-out star Sam Hunt. ‘Take Your Time’ owns Hot Country Songs, Country Digital Songs and Country Streaming Songs, and with other tracks like ‘Speakers’, ‘Break Up In A Small Town’ and previous single ‘Leave The Night On’ as well as his album ‘Montevallo’ continuing to hold respectable places on the charts, I think it’s unlikely we’ll see him relinquish his hold any time soon. Kacey Musgraves gets the Hot Country Songs Hot Shot Debut meanwhile, as ‘Biscuits’ debuts at #28 on the chart, while it jumps nine places to #42 on Country Airplay, already above ‘Follow Your Arrow’s peak. Chris Janson’s ‘Buy Me A Boat’ also makes its entrance this week, notching #33 on Hot Country Songs and an impressive #8 on Country Digital Songs, just behind ‘Biscuits’ which comes in at #4. Read on for the full top 50s/top 60s, organized by artist!
