Florida Georgia Line's "Round Here" Is Week's Most-Played Song
Luke Bryan's Crash My Party Persists as Best-Selling Country Album

There's a new No. 1 song on Billboard's country airplay list as Florida Georgia Line's "Round Here" rolls into that spot after a 17-week journey.

And with 67,846 copies sold this week alone, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and 847,143 units moved to date, Luke Bryan's Crash My Party continues to top the Billboard country albums chart.

Frank Foster's Southern Soul is the week's highest-debuting album, emerging at No. 11 on sales of 5,761 copies.

The other albums making their first appearances are Craig Morgan's The Journey (Livin' Hits) (No. 12), Reckless Kelly's Long Night Moon (No. 22), Chris Janson's self-titled EP (No. 47) and the various-artists compilation, Sandra Boynton's Frog Trouble (No. 51).

That last album title is just too intriguing to let pass without comment. Boynton is a writer, illustrator, children's books author and, as this collection demonstrates, a pretty fair songwriter.

Her 12 tunes are melodic and memorable and reach out to more than just kids. They're sung here by an array of country and rock artists, among them Alison Krauss, Dwight Yoakam, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Kacey Musgraves, Fountains of Wayne and Ben Folds.

We could tell you what "frog trouble" is, but that would be cheating, wouldn't it?

Only two new songs come aboard this week: Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert's "We Were Us," which bows at No. 49, and Kellie Pickler's "Little Bit Gypsy," dancing in at No. 59.

Completing the Top 5 albums array, in descending order, are Blake Shelton's Based on a True Story, Florida Georgia Line's Here's to the Good Times, the eponymous Alabama & Friends and Bryan's Tailgates & Tanlines.

Songs No. 2 through No. 5 are Urban's "Little Bit of Everything" (last week's No. 1), Easton Corbin's "All Over the Road," Jason Aldean's "Night Train" and Justin Moore's "Point at You."

Now that the CMA award nominations have been announced, you're probably thinking about going door to door to lobby for your favorite candidates. Don't bother. Only CMA members can vote -- and they don't have to present picture IDs.
