cma fest 2015

CMA Festival’s Country’s Night To Rock aired this week (Aug. 4th) on ABC… and it was pretty forgettable. Country super group Little Big Town hosted the event and did a good job at it, it’s just too bad the event wasn’t as good as they were.

Cole Swindell ‘Let Me See Ya Girl’ – Single Review

cole swindell 4

Ahh Cole Swindell, reinforcing his reputation as the Creepy McCreeperson of Music Row. As if being a mini Luke Bryan and snatching his fan base wasn’t enough, Cole has made a pretty good living already out of penning weird “narratives” that objectify women and blur the lines between sexual consent and harassment. ‘Hope You Get Lonely Tonight’ in particular had a dark quality to it that was certainly not intended, rather inadvertently reflected the worrying view on what is deemed acceptable to do and say in modern sexual relations. ‘Let Me See Ya Girl’ (previously known as ‘Lemme See Ya Girl’) doesn’t even try to hide its gross predatory nature behind a notion of “romance”, however, and after ‘Ain’t Worth The Whiskey’ saw a jilted lover practically bitching in subtweets this seems like just one more chapter in the “Cole Swindell is an ass” playbook.

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!
