Billboard Chart Roundup – Week of February 14th, 2015

Luke-Bryan-630x420

Once again Luke Bryan tops the Hot Country Songs chart with his latest smash hit ‘I See You’, and as of this week the sixth Country Airplay #1 from his latest studio album ‘Crash My Party’ (a new record). Yet, despite the relative Luke Bryan dominance, it’s Sam Hunt who gets the last laugh once again, as ‘Montevallo’ leads Top Country Albums for another week, ‘Take Your Time’ does the same at Country Digital Songs, and the only change happening at Country Streaming Songs is ‘Leave The Night On’ and ‘Take Your Time’ swapping over between #1 and #2. And although Eric Church’s Country Airplay drop is only one place this week with ‘Talladega’ (last week’s #1), and Zac Brown Band’s ‘Homegrown’ is one of the biggest gainers, the spotlight largely shies away from any of the other acts on the charts this week. Read on for the full top 50s/60s of each of the five Billboard country charts, organized by artist!

Sir Mashalot, the guy behind the 6-song mash-up that’s currently making the rounds in country music circles, recently spoke to me about the track, how he put it together and why he thinks it’s important.

Luke Bryan ‘I See You’ – Single Review

Luke Bryan In Concert - Brooklyn, NY

A total of fifteen months after the release of fourth studio album ‘Crash My Party’, Luke Bryan is already on his sixth single. Artists rarely get the opportunity to release that many songs from an album to radio, with the average usually being around two-three. The superstar acts will usually go for four and might punt for five if the momentum is right, but six? Only the likes of Taylor Swift get to do things like that, and she’s now safe and sound in the much bigger pop world (where Rihanna releases an album a year and accompanies that with around six singles per record. Yes, that’s one every two months).
