Re-Charting The Chart

Image result for we should be friends miranda lambert

Every week we will take a look at the top 30 Mediabase Country Chart. We will re-rank the songs on the chart based on the quality and overall enjoyment of each song. Next to each song I will provide the ranking that we would give it and the actual ranking on the Mediabase chart in parenthesis (From America’s Music Charts). At the end of each ranking there will be some thoughts about the current chart as well as any news or updates that are deemed important. I hope everyone enjoys this weekly post and feel free to comment/agree/disagree with anything you see.

New To The Top 30: “We Should Be Friends” Miranda Lambert’s second single off her terrific album The Weight of These Wings. Even one of the lesser songs on her new album is one of the best on the country charts coming in at #6 on our chart. This is a fun song about the type of people that Miranda would like to be friends with.

Songs That Left The Top 30: “Blue Ain’t Your Color” Keith Urban’s next single will be “The Fighter” which features Carrie Underwood.

Quick Thoughts: “Parachute” by Chris Stapleton is done. This was the last single we will get from the critically acclaimed Traveler. I am hopeful that a lead single for the new album will be out soon. Besides that, there are still too many songs lingering on the charts that should fall off soon to make room for quarter 1 singles. Josh Turner is in the top 20 for the first time since “Time is Love” and a new album will be out March 10th. “Dirt On My Boots” is Jon Pardi’s fastest rising single and is turning into a monster hit on both the radio and in sales. Two people on this chart came out with new albums Friday (Lauren Alaina and Brantley Gilbert). I am not sure if I will be reviewing either one but if I do it would be Alaina’s.
