– Jake Owen scored the number 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country chart for the week ending July 19 with the summer-themed "Beachin'." Owen took over the number one spot from Miranda Lambert, whose duet with Carrie Underwood, "Somethin' Bad," fell to sixth. Lambert, however, led the albums chart with "Platinum."
Colt Ford debuted in second on the albums chart with "Thanks for Listening." Brantley Gilbert was third with "Just As I Am." Old Crow Medicine Show was fourth in its first week out with "Remedy." Luke Bryan held fifth with "Crash My Party."
The remainder of the top 25 showed little movement with most discs either the same or down one or two slots.
Kenny Chesney jumped from sixth to second on the songs chart with "American Kids" in only its third week out. Dierks Bentley was third with "Drunk on a Plane." Luke Bryan was fourth with "Play It Again." Florida Georgia Line's "This is How We Roll" was fifth in a song featuring Bryan.
Newcomer Sam Hunt stood at 19 with "Leave the Night On," up 5. Little Big Town broke into the top 25 - at 24 - with "Day Drinking."
On the Bluegrass Albums chart, Nickel Creek stayed first once again with "A Dotted Line." Alan Jackson was second with "The Bluegrass Album." Steve Martin and Edie Brickell were third with "Love Has Come For You." They were also fourth with "Live" with the Steep Canyon Rangers aboard. Jonathan Widger, Sarah Moore and Randy Nichols were fifth with "Timeless Treasures: Bluegrass Gospel."
On the overall top 200, Lambert was 7th, Ford 10th, Gilbert 12th, Old Crow 15th and Bryan 20th.
