iTunes UK Country Chart Roundup – Week of 9th September, 2014

Lee Brice is the spotlight of this roundup, largely due to the release of his new album ‘I Don’t Dance’, currently at #3 and #18 on our Country Albums chart (deluxe and standard editions). Of course, Dolly Parton is still holding onto #1 and #4, and Taylor Swift has her usual monopoly of #2 (‘Red’), #11 (‘Red – Deluxe Edition’), #12 (‘Fearless’), and #13 (‘Fearless – Platinum Edition’), while Lady Antebellum sit at #7 with ‘Need You Now’, but there are a few differences on the chart. For example, Lady Antebellum’s pre-order for their upcoming album ‘747’ is at #9, Brad Paisley’s ‘Moonshine In The Trunk’ is at #6, and Derek Ryan’s ‘The Simple Things’ is down at #16.

Lee Brice ‘I Don’t Dance’ – Album Review

lee-brice-album-i-dont-dance-2014

Sometimes, when artists release new albums, they do what you expect them to. You have a preconceived idea of how the record is going to sound, what kind of topics they will cover, the quality of the lyrics and vocals. So when you listen, it generally fulfils your expectations and you’re comfortable in that, with just enough twists and turns to keep you interested through the warmth of familiarity. Sometimes, however, artists create something entirely different from what you assume, whether through going in a musical direction they did not explain prior to release, making music that contradicts their image, or the polarizing options of making a record far better than you could ever have imagined, versus making a record that is far worse than you expect of their talent. Every time an artist releases a new record, they have the potential to do all of these things and more, and it can be a bit nerve-wracking, especially if you’re a fan of that artist.

Lee Brice ‘Drinking Class’ – Single Review

It’s funny how one semi-established artist can find success with a sound and another can’t. However much they differ sonically and artistically, you can’t deny the similarities between the music we have heard thus far from Lee Brice’s sophomore album and what we have heard of Kip Moore’s sophomore album. Lee’s lead single ‘I Don’t Dance’ peaked at #1 on radio and #5 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, and his follow-up ‘Drinking Class’ is already top 50 despite the fact that it’s not officially released until September 8. Kip Moore, meanwhile, launched with ‘Young Love’, which peaked at #22, and returned with ‘Dirt Road’, his current single that is still top 50 on radio even though it was released some months ago. Both men have opted for a big, stadium rock sound channeling Springsteen among others, and both men have grounded those sounds first in a love song, before opting for something more about lifestyle and southern working class identity. Both men have received mostly positive press for their releases.
