Bryan enjoys number one album, Shelton stays atop songs chart

Thursday, March 14, 2013 – Blake Shelton stayed first on the Billboard Country Songs chart for the week ending March 23rd with Sure Be Cool If You Did. Luke Bryan enjoyed the number one selling disc in the U.S. with " Spring Break... Here To Party," a compilation disc with two new songs from his spring break EP series. He took over the head of the country chart from Taylor Swift's "Red," which fell to third.

Florida Georgia Line was second on the albums chart with "Here's to the Good Times." Tim McGraw was fourth with "Two Lanes of Freedom" and Little Big Town fifth with "Tornado." Ashley Monroe debuted at number 10 with "Like a Rose."

There was hardly any upward movement in the remainder of the top 40. "Icon: Gary Allan" went from 52 to 37.

Shelton has competition though on the songs chart from a familiar face - his wife. Miranda Lambert is second with Mama's Broken Heart, which jumped from seventh. Lady Antebellum is third with Downtown, up three. Carrie Underwood inched up from fifth to fourth with Two Black Cadillacs. Hunter Hayes' Wanted was down three to fifth. .

Darius Rucker jumped from 16 to 11 with Wagon Wheel. Bryan debuted in 20th with Buzzkill from his new set. Chris Young was 21st, up 3, with I Can Take It From Here. Eric Church also was up 3, to 23, with Like Jesus Does. McGraw saw his single - Highway Don't Care - move up from 30 to 26 with some help from Swift. Brad Paisley debuted at 29 with his new single Beat This Summer. Kip Moore's latest single, Hey Pretty Girl, made it into the top 30 - at 30 - up 1.

Old Man Markley debuted at number one on the Bluegrass Albums chart with "Down Side Up," taking up from Russell Moore and iiird Tyme Out's "Timeless Hits from the Past: Bluegrassed." Old Crow Medicine Show was third with "Carry Me Back," while The SteelDrivers were fourth with "Hammer Down" and Trampled by Turtles fifth with "Stars and Satellites."

On the overall top 200, Florida Georgia Line was 7th, Swift 14th, McGraw 21st and Little Big Town 25th.

The Deluxe edition of his seventh album "Born Here, Live Here, Die Here" was born out of the pandemic tour stoppage. It includes six new songs and increases the run time to 54 minutes.

CD review - Born Here, Live Here, Die Here After taking in Luke Bryan's "Born Here Live Here Die Here," the listener will never guess this full length was released during a pandemic. Maybe that's a good thing. After all, we might need a diversion from the international health crisis now and then. The release opens with "Knockin' Boots," which is how modern cowboys describe sexual intercourse. A few songs later, Bryan gives us the drinking song (and single) "One Margarita." In between, "What ...
CD review - What Makes You Country Luke Bryan aims to please often, and that rarely goes unpunished. The Georgia native has a strong voice, some songwriting skill and even legitimate farming cred. But Bryan still gets pegged as the face of corporate country - that pandering beast packaging artists for mass consumption.
