Re-Charting The Chart

 

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: Rascal Flatts “Yours If You Want It” 

Songs That Left The Top 30: Lady Antebellum “You Look Good” just a temporary drop after IHeart stopped the hourly spins. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it back next week.

Songs I See Leaving Us Soon: Seein’ Red, If The Boot Fits, How Not To, Star Of The Show, 80’s Mercedes. Seein’ Red and Star of the Show have both already gone number 1 so they will be gone soon. Thomas Rhetts next single will be for a new album and Dustin’s next single is Small Town Boy. How Not To is still sticking around but it’s just a matter of time. If The Boot Fits and 80’s Mercedes are also done. Maren Morris’ new single is “Once”

Quick Thoughts: The chart improved 4 points this week with a bad song replacing a worse song.
