It’s been a busy month at Country Music Radio. Last week, the new Miranda duet with Carrie Underwood had the greatest increase in spins. Little Big Town‘s “Day Drinking” has also been doing well with the most adds. This week we have a few new tracks to join the mix. Look out for music from Kenny Chesney, Thompson Square, Keith Urban and more…and don’t forget to call and request.
Keith Urban – Somewhere In My Car
Keith Urban has lit a Fuse at country radio. With the first two singles from the project shooting up to the top spot on the charts, it was no surprise when “Cop Car” landed him a Top 5 hit. This week he releases “Somewhere In My Car”. I’ll leave the review to #CMchat’s Jen Swirsky, but I have to say this song is HOT. I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more of this song by the end of the summer. Be sure to request “Somewhere In My Car” at country radio NOW.
Kenny Chesney – American Kids
Kenny might have the summer off, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t going to be able to hear music from the hit maker. He is back in full swing with his first single from a new album. “American Kids” is sure to make a huge impact at radio – after all, it is Kenny Chesney.
Thompson Square – I Can’t Outrun You
Doesn’t it seem like Thompson Square just released “Testing the Water” to country radio? Apparently the test didn’t go very well – the label has quickly switched out the fun summer song for “I Can’t Outrun You”, my favorite track from the duo’s second album. How will this song do in the midst of the drunken haze of fair and festival season? Only time will tell.
Other adds this week:
Lee Ann Womack – The Way I’m Livin’
Tyler Barham – More Than a Cotton Dress
Sarah Dunn Band – You or the Whiskey
Jerad Bridges – I Was Wrong
