FGL, Aldean lead charts

Thursday, October 23, 2014 – Florida Georgia Line's number one selling disc in the U.S., "Anything Goes," means, of course, that disc is first on the Top Country Albums chart as well for the week ending Nov. 1. Jason Aldean continues his domination of the Hot Country Songs chart with "Burnin' It Down" still reigning at the top.

On the albums chart, FGL took over from Aldean's "Old Boots, New Dirt," which slipped to second. Blake Shelton was third with "Bringing Back the Sunshine," one ahead of Lady Antebellum's "747." Kenny Chesney was fifth with "The Big Revival."

The Swon Brothers debuted in sixth with their self-titled full-length debut. FGL was also 10th on the chart with "Here's to the Good Times," up 3.

On the songs chart, Florida Georgia Line is second with "Dirt," one ahead of Sam Hunt's "Leave the Night On." Blake Shelton is fourth with "Neon Light" with Chase Rice fifth with "Ready Set Roll." New duo Maddie & Tae scored their first top 10 hit with "Girl in a Country Song," up from 11 to 8. Frankie Ballard was ninth with "Sunshine & Whiskey," up three.

Tim McGraw stood at 16 with "Shotgun Rider,' up 3. So was Brad Paisley's "Perfect Storm," now at 17.

Glen Campbell was far the biggest mover with "I'm Not Gonna Miss You," catapulting from 50 to 21. This is Campbell's first appearance on the chart in 21 years. Eric Church's new single, "Talladega," was at 24, up 3.

On the Bluegrass Albums chart, Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn again were first with their self-titled debut. Chris Thile & Edgar Meyer were second with "Bass & Mandolin," one ahead of The Earls of Leicester, self-titled debut. Alan Jackson's "The Bluegrass Album" was fourth, 56 weeks after its release. Hot Rize was fifth with "When I'm Free."

On the Billboard 200 chart, Aldean was 2nd, Shelton 15th, Lady A 18th and Chesney 19th.

CD reviews for Florida Georgia Line

CD review - 6-Pack EP When Florida Georgia Line sing about how much they love their country with "I Love My Country," this lightning rod duo must certainly be aware that not everybody loves 'their' country. 'Their' country doesn't always match the country music of George Strait, after all, who is name-dropped in said song. Strait is just too stylistically straight, for instance, to ever work in the sort of hip-hop cadence that drives "Ain't Worried About It. ...
CD review - Dig Your Roots From the ribbits and Dobro on "Smooth," the lead-off song, one might think that Florida Georgia Line is eschewing its rap rock meets country past for something completely different. While at times that is true - "Smooth" has a swampy beat - Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard haven't veered so far from what brought them to the dance. That is evident with the title track where the thwack of drum programming from long-time producer Joey Moi meets the soulful, somewhat shiny vocals. ...
CD review - Anything Goes The title of Florida Georgia Line's second full length is accurate. For the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly, that means girls, girls and more girls plus an ultra dose of partying. That is evident from the refrain of the title track, which, of course, focuses on Friday night activities. "I brought the songs and you brought the party/ Only one way to do it up right/Everybody goes where eveybody knows/That anything goes on a Friday Night/Get your party right/It's a Friday night. ...
