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). 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: “Somethin’ I’m Good At.” Brett Eldredge’ lead single. Not the worst song but it’s just boring like so many other songs on the radio and nothing really country about it either. Brett has the potential to be a special artist but there’s no reason to believe we will ever see that potential come to fruition.

Songs That Left The Top 30: “Road Less Traveled.” Next single is “Doin’ Fine”

Songs In Danger Of Going Recurrent: “There’s a Girl” is finally done.

“Hometown Girl.” The next single is “All About You.” I’m a little bit surprised as this is one of the weaker tracks on the album. At least it sounds country.

“Body Like a Backroad” is number 1 again. It would have been a 3 week number 1 but MCA made sure that Josh who is also with MCA got a number 1. Chart manipulation at it’s finest.

“Any Ol’ Barstool”

“Love Triangle” looks to be about done.

“Yours If You Want It” went down 2 spots this week. I never thought this would be a number 1 hit. The label will want to keep this alive until the new album comes out May 19th so I expect it to peak in the top 10 and go recurrent after the album drops. And that should be the end of any big hits for Rascal Flatts. Radio has moved on.



  1. Yes! I love Lauren Alaina’s Doin’ Fine. And also, Midland is in the top 20! Yay! 🙂

    On the other hand, Sam Hunt is #1 again. Yippee. Body Like a Back Road is one of the most embarrassing songs to ever be released to country radio. However, Sunday, I was in my car, flipping through radio stations, and I do believe I heard something worse and less country than Sam Hunt: Todd O’Neill’s Love Again. Oh my, what a doozy. And worst song of the year quality right there folks.

  2. If you’re talking about the song, it’s not on YouTube. Strangely. It is on Spotify, however. I make no joke when I say that it makes Sam Hunt look like Alan Jackson.

  3. For me, it’s probably going to be between this (Love Again), Body Like a Back Road, and God, Your Mama, and Me. Probably Body Like a Back Road, because the lyrics are atrocious and it’s a huge monster hit. And I really don’t see the bar being set any lower. Unless, of course, Thomas Rhett decides to unleash another Vacation-like atrocity on us. Which I sure as hell hope he doesn’t.

  4. I agree, it is the least of the three evils. But it will for sure make the list because the Backstreet Boys on country radio is like playing baseball with a bowling ball. It shouldn’t be.
