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). Songs that are in the color red are songs that are either recurrent or in danger of going recurrent soon, while blue is for songs that I predict will go to number 1 at some point. 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: “Every Time I Hear That Song.” Like everything else Blake Shelton releases this song just looks to play it safe. The production is incredibly boring and generic and nobody will remember this song a year from now. Completely and utterly pointless.
“Love Triangle.” This is by far the best song that Raelynn has ever released to radio. This is the story of her parents divorce and the effect that it had on her growing up. It’s such a relateable song. Unfortunately, Raelynn’s debut album was not very good and was not country in the slightest but, this song in particular is very good.
Songs That Left The Top 30: “Make You Mine”
“Sober Saturday Night.” This should be the last song off I’m Comin’ Over. Chris is in the studio recording new music right now so we should expect a new single soon in time for the tour season.
Songs In Danger Of Going Recurrent: “Think a Little Less”
“Outskirts of Heaven”
“There’s a Girl”
“Kill a Word” is done.
“Dirt on my Boots”
