The 9513 update (3-14-10)

Top Artists
With a new album, Gary Allan shot to the top of the charts, with 32 listeners. That's an impressive gain of 10 listeners from the week before. Miranda Lambert (28 listeners) and Johnny Cash (26) ranked #2 and #2, respectively. A few of the perennial favorites who completely fell off the charts last week were back with a vengeance, notably Reba McEntire, who rose from 14 listeners to 23, and Alan Jackson, from 16 to 22. Willie Nelson jumps into the Top 10 with 21 listeners, and Blake Shelton, with 16 listeners, ends up in the Top 20 for the first time this year. Maybe if he had released more than six songs, he would have done better. Ryan Bingham, still riding the Oscar-winning wave, has 17 listeners for the second week in a row, making it a rare occurrence when an Americana artist ends up in the Top 20. Hopefully it won't be the last time, because I'd personally like to see a little bit more of a mix between Americana and country on the charts.

Top Albums
Allan's Get Off On The Pain was good enough to make it to #2 with 14 listeners, but Lambert took the #1 spot with Revolution and its 17 listeners. This category is a bit more balanced that the Artists chart, as it has pop-country like Taylor Swift's Fearless and Lady Antebellum's Need You Now (13 listeners) up there along with more traditional artists like Lee Ann Womack's Call Me Crazy (11) and Easton Corbin's debut (10), with some Americana thrown in by way of Bingham's Mescalito (11) and The Avett Brothers' I and Love and You (9). The other debut for the week, Shelton's Hillbilly Bone, just cracked the Top 20 with 8 listeners. Top Tracks
Allan took eight of the top 10 spots, with “Get Off On The Pain,” “We Fly By Night” and “Today” all having 12 listeners to vie for #1. Lady Antebellum's “Need You Now” and Lambert's “The House That Built Me” managed to sneak into the Top 10 with 9 listeners each. Corbin's songs, which had been doing fairly well, got displaced by Allan pretty thoroughly, but “Roll With It” and several others managed 6 listeners. The only song from Shelton's not-at-all-an-EP was “Delilah,” with 7. After that, a couple of modern-era country classics – George Strait's “Amarillo By Morning” and Garth Brooks' “Friends in Low Places” – had 7 listeners. At least they managed to beat “Paparazzi” by Lady GaGa, even if it was by just one listener.
