This week’s Billboard country charts look pretty much like a photocopy of last week’s.
There are no new albums to report and only one new song. That song is Sam Hunt’s “Downtown’s Dead,” which beams in at a lofty No. 18 (If downtown is dead, it may be because so many people were in a room composing this song, which has five co-writers.).
Four albums return to the rankings — the ponderously titled Playlist: The Very Best of Alan Jackson (back at No. 41), Taylor Swift’s Fearless (No. 42), Rascal Flatts’ Greatest Hits Volume 1 (No. 46) and Johnny Cash’s
Songs snapping back into action are Travis Denning’s “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs” (No. 57) and Stephanie Quayle’s “Selfish” (No. 60).
So how about another round of Title Tales, the game in which we fuse together two or more song titles from the current country airplay chart just to what silliness we can come up with?
My shots: “Meant to Be/Selfish,” “For the First Time/Downtown’s Dead,” “Kiss Somebody/Rich” and that crowd favorite, “Hide the Wine/I Got This/Drunk Girl.”
