Country Billboard Chart News April 11, 2013

Country Billboard Chart News April 11, 2013

Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience helds at No. 1 for a third straight week on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart (BB200), selling another 139,285 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan (down 56%).
It's the first set to spend it first three weeks at No. 1 since Taylor Swift's Red (Nov. 10-Nov. 24, 2012) and the first by a male artist in nearly three years. Eminem's Recovery was the last by a male to rule in its first three weeks: July 10-July 24, 2010.

The Band Perry made a strong start at No. 2 on the chart, as its second album, PIONEER (Republic Nashville/Big Machine Label Group), debuts with a stronger-than-expected 129,291 sales (Physical sales  95,021/ Digital sales 34,270).
It also launched at No. 1 on the Top Billboard Country Albums chart, the act’s first No. 1 on that tally, and it’s the group’s second top five album.
Industry forecasters had expected the album to bow with more than 110,000. The excitement generated by the trio's performance of their single “Done” on the Academy of Country Music Awards (April 7), which earned 15.4 million viewers (most since 1998), helped fuel a late drive in sales.
The ACMs were on Sunday, the final day of the SoundScan tracking week, so impact from the awards was  still felt in the week's charts. The start for PIONEER is the best sales week yet for the Band Perry, whose self-titled debut bowed and peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 in Oct 2010 with 53,000. The sibling trio’s previous best sales week was that  self-titled full-length debut sold 53,000 during Thanksgiving week 2011 (on the chart dated Dec. 10), 13 months after its release.

That Platinum album is now on the catalog album charts and still holds a No.103 slot on the Bliiboad Top 200 selling 4,609 copies, up 15% with a total haul to date of 1,488,534. It was the No. 6 best-selling country album of 2011. That album spawned “If I Die Young,” which has sold 4,542,000 copies. It’s the third best-selling country song in digital history, trailing only Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” (6,089,000) and Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” (5,546,000).
In February 2013, PIONEER’s lead single, “Better Dig Two,” spent two weeks atop Hot Country Songs (it holds at No. 17 this week) and one week at the Country Digital Songs summit. Second and current single “DONE.” surges 25-10 on Hot Country Songs, where it adds Streaming Gainer honors (to 262,000 total streams) following its April 3 video premiere.

Promoting their new album the sibling trio made several appearances across multiple platforms to spotlight new music from their sophomore project with appearances on:
Live On Letterman (LIVE concert webcast), Late Show With David Letterman (CBS) on Tuesday April 2nd, Good Morning America (ABC), SiriusXM Album Premiere Special, VEVO Exclusive Premiere of new music video for “DONE”, Nightline (ABC), Weds April 3 Clear Channel’s iHeart Radio LIVE concert series, Fri. April 5 ET  Outnumber Hunger LIVE! (ACM Party for a Cause Festival at Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas) and Sat.April 6 Outnumber Hunger LIVE: It Takes A Big Machine To Outnumber Hunger (AXS-TV network)

Critical acclaim for PIONEER
“preserves their homegrown twang nicely, nixing the boring pop-crossover vibe that plagues so much mainstream country.” Entertainment Weekly
“…sibling trio’s shining sophomore disc.” Us Weekly (3 out of 4 stars)
“…shows that the path the trio blazed with its debut was no mere fluke.” The Oakland Press
“…well aware of both 1970s West Coast rock and the arena-folk foot stompers of Mumford & Sons.” The New York Times
“’Pioneer’ ups the commercial ante with a turbocharged country-pop and rock sound.” Chicago Tribune
“…the group has made what will likely be one of the signal country albums of 2013.” The Washington Post
"Strong songs, potent production." USA Today
“In fact, we might be witnessing the next country/pop crossover to superstardom a la Taylor Swift!” Roughstock

Allmusic 3 STARS - Starting with the threats of "Better Dig Two," there's a swagger that underpins much of Pioneer, the second album from family country-pop trio the Band Perry. This boldness never quite dissipates under the thunderous cloud of big ballads, of which there are many here. Almost all the attitude derives from Kimberly Perry, who retains a sense of palpable defiance even in the quietest moments, her vigor lending passion to music that is deliberately designed to appeal to the widest possible audience as it blurs the line between contemporary country and pop. 

Taste Of Country 4 STARS Extract: The Band Perry‘s new album ‘Pioneer’ is just as dramatic, yet dramatically more steady than their debut effort. The bar was raised and reached vocally, and songs like ‘Done,’ ‘Forever Mine Nevermind’ and ‘Chainsaw’ prove the family trio has lost nothing in terms of lyrical edge.....‘Pioneer’ holds no shortage of styles and surprises, even a lilting folk song in the title track. For some, this will be the highlight of the project — one can be sure very few people will agree on a favorite. The ambitious lyric shows a maturity largely unmatched by a group only two albums into a blossoming career. A few of their bold choices come rough around the edges, but the collection is more than strong enough to justify a headlining tour in 2014 -  something the band is currently working on.

GAC Review - Extract The Band Perry co-wrote nine of the album’s 12 songs, pairing up with emerging family act The Henningsens to pen six. Out of these collaborations came the album’s Appalachian-tinged title track, “Pioneer.”
Celebrating the strength in those willing to follow the horizon, “Pioneer” fields some of the album’s finest sibling harmonies to complement the track’s acoustic purity.....Constantly bursting with life, even slower songs like “Mother Like Mine” — a heartfelt ballad dedicated to their Mom — are alive with emotions that are easily felt. On “End Of Time,” a slightly distorted Americana-influenced song, the Southern imagery is deeply vivid and sung with such a rich voice that the words, The Alabama moon fell from the sky and the sweet tea wells ran dry, survive long past the song’s end. While celebrating life and an independent spirit, The Band Perry blazes their own trail on Pioneer with a strong and unique vision.

Last week’s #1 album BASED ON A TRUE STORY... from Blake Shelton dropped to No.4 on the BB200 and No.2 on the Country chart. Sales for the ACM Awards co-host and performer in his 2nd week were 82,211, down 59% with a 2-week tally of 281,545.
Florida Georgia Line moved up to #3 in the country placings as HERE'S TO THE GOOD TIMES sold 26,342 copies (up 8%, 18 week total of 483,472) and could well scan Gold at retail in the coming week.
Alan Jackson’s collection of traditional Gospel Hymns PRECIOUS MEMORIES II album was thed#4 country album this week. It sold 24,785 copies, down 55% for a 2-week haul of 80,408.
The ACM nominated and presenter Kacey Musgraves has the No.6 album. Media appearances helped sales of SAME TRAILER DIFFERENT PARK go up 3% in her 3rd week selling 18,059 (79,194 total)

The Music Is You, A Tribute To John Denver, with sales of 12,783 (9,073 sales were Digital/ 3,710 sales were Physical) debuted at #37 on the BB200 and was new #12 on the country chart. The album, released on April 2, 2013 by ATO Records, features such artists as My Morning Jacket, Dave Matthews, Train, Lucinda Williams, Evan Dando and an outstanding track by Mary Chapin Carpenter performing Denver songs.

The album recalls If I Were A Carpenter, a 1994 tribute to Carpenters, another act that was under-rated by critics and hipsters at the time, but whose music has gained favor with the passing years. Denver first gained fame in 1969 as the writer of Peter, Paul & Mary’s #1 hit, “Leaving On A Jet Plane.” Denver was neck-and-neck with Elton John as the hottest artist in pop music in 1974 and 1975. In that two-year period, he had three #1 albums on The Billboard 200 and four #1 singles on the Hot 100.
He also had a string of hit TV specials and even a hit movie (1977’s Oh, God!). Denver’s career momentum slowed in the ’80s. He died in October of 1997 when the single engine plane he was piloting crashed off the coast of California.
The album set been praised by some as a way to help Denver's catalogue reach a new, younger audience.

Critical reviews for The Music Is You, A Tribute To John Denver
From NPR.orgAsk die-hard John Denver fans why they love the late singer’s music so much and they’ll likely tell you the same thing: “He makes me cry.” Denver, who wrote unabashedly sentimental songs about love, nature and an ever-homesick life on the road, had a rare gift for stirring something inside listeners. To many, his melodies and lyrics could come off as maudlin and conventional. But for the countless believers — and there are many — Denver was a poet, a visionary and a constant companion.

Allmusic 3 STARS – Extract: John Denver was no William Shakespeare, but he could wield sentimentality as skillfully as the bard could wax poetic. ATO Records' The Music is You: A Tribute to John Denver gathers up an oddball team of contemporary artists with a shared love for the late Muppets/Rocky Mountains loving singer/songwriter, and lets them strut and fret their hours upon the stage by paying homage to a rich assortment of Denver classics. Not as immediately gratifying as 2000's Mark Kozelek-curated Take Me Home: A Tribute to John Denver, the 16-track collection does have its moments.....and Brandi Carlile and Emmylou Harris (a duo that should invest some more time together) twist "Take Me Home Country Roads" into the feral, gospel stomper you never knew it wanted to be, breathing new life into the songs without losing a thing in the process.

Pop Matters 8/10 - A Perfectly Cast Tribute Record. Extract: It’s hard to believe that John Denver has been gone for 15 years and that his best-known songs began taking their place in the world more than 40 years ago. It’s also hard to believe that the once ubiquitous performer hasn’t been given the true tribute treatment sooner. But there really could not have been a better time than now, as this 16-song set proves....It’s hard to remember the last time a tribute record was this well cast, or the last time a tribute record cast light on its subject with such tenderness and such care.

Gretchen Wilson’s RIGHT ON TIME debuted at No.91 on the BB200 and No.24 Country with sales of 5,315 (without the benefit of a big radio hit) .
Physical sales of the album were 3,509 and Digital sales of 1,806 made up the remainder.

Reviews/ Critical acclaim for RIGHT ON TIME

nashvillecountryclub 4 STARS - Whether it be rock, blues, country, soul, or funk, whatever this album is it is good. The pacing of the album is done very well. Never does the album seem to repeat its vibe or even its tempo. It bounces seamlessly from hard rock to slow piano driven jazz. It would seem that Gretchen Wilson is back, and she is “Right On Time.”

Country Weekly  Grade B – Extract: And while no one would ever accuse the original “Redneck Woman” of being anything less than confident, her newest release, Right on Time, definitely showcases an artist more comfortable in her skin and confident in her musical choices. With tracks that swing from the tongue-in-cheek “Grandma” to the Eagles-esque new single, “Still Rollin’,” to the jazzy “Birds of a Feather,” straight to the saturated-in-R&B goodness of “I’ve Been in Love,” Gretchen gives listeners a bigger-picture view of her vast influences and what she’s always been capable of but never had the chance to do. Whether that was because of record-label politics or her own choices is debatable, but forgivable considering the project her fans now have on hand.It’s noteworthy that Gretchen, an accomplished songwriter, only has writing credits on one track (“Still Rollin’”). In a city like Nashville where songwriters are stacked on top of each other like Pringles in a can, though, that only reveals an ear for a great song and incredible lack of ego.

Allmusic 4 STARS - Sony dropped her in 2009 when she failed to generate another million-seller like "Redneck Woman," but Wilson has rebounded nicely, starting her own label, Redneck Records, and with three albums due in 2013, she's firmly in charge of her own career for the first time. The aptly named Right on Time shows that Wilson is capable of much more than just country honky tonk anthems, and in fact, this set is way more garage rock blues than it is country, with some late-night jazz, soul, and funk thrown in as well, and it's clearly a statement that Wilson isn't about to sit still musically. .......This may not be country, but it's how Wilson sees it, and it's difficult to say that she's wrong, not with an album as varied and good as this.

“Right on Time” (Redneck Records) is available at Amazon UK CD [Import] - Amazon MP3 

Outside the Top 25 Country albums at No.28  (No.172 BB200), is Justin Moore’s new Walmart-exclusive EP POINT AT YOU (featuring the new title track and 4 #1 hits from his previous two albums) it sold 3,034 copies.

Holding a No.39 country slot and making a bow is BJ Thomas’ THE LIVING ROOM SESSIONS (Wrinkled Records/REYE) album, released April 2, 2013, selling 1,711 copies.
The 70-year old Hugo, Oklahoma born artist is known for "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head", a #1 song (#38 in the UK) written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach for the 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
It won an Academy Award for Best Original Song. David and Bacharach also won Best Original Score. "(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song" was another pop song made famous by B.J. The song became Thomas' second number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1975. In addition, it ascended to the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart three weeks after reaching its peak on the pop chart.
THE LIVING ROOM SESSIONS (2013) is B.J. Thomas' first "unplugged" album, celebrating fifty years in the recording industry and forty-seven years since his first Gold record (a cover of the Hank Williams song, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"). The Living Room Sessions offers many of Thomas' most recognizable hits, the album was produced to instill the atmosphere of an intimate setting and includes duet performances from some of Thomas' favorite artists.

Review/ Critical acclaim for THE LIVING ROOM SESSIONS

AllMusic 3.5 STARS -Returning to secular pop music after an extended sojourn in Christian and Christmas music, B.J. Thomas teams up with producer Kyle Lehning for The Living Room Sessions. The title indicates that this 2013 album is an intimate affair and it is, finding Thomas revisiting many of his hits, often in the company of
a duet partner. Although Isaac Slade of the Fray joins Thomas for "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," the guests aren't current hitmakers, they're largely peers and colleagues of Thomas', so they fit well with him, with Vince Gill naturally harmonizing on "I Just Can't Help Believing," Keb' Mo' providing some grit on "Most of All," Richard Marx easing into "(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song," and Lyle Lovett providing a counterpoint on "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head." Despite the preponderance of guests -- Steve Tyrell, Etta Britt, and Sara Niemietz also appear, leaving just a third of the album to B.J. himself -- this amiable acoustic album is a showcase for Thomas, who hasn't seemed to lose much vocally, and remains an engaging, friendly presence on record.

Singer/songwriter Lee Brice clocks his best time to Billboard’s Country Airplay summit with “I Drive Your Truck” (Curb), which becomes his third consecutive No. 1 in its 19th week on the Nielsen BDS-driven chart.
He most recently topped the list with “Hard to Love,” which needed 25 weeks to ring the top bell, reigning for two weeks last fall. Brice’s first No. 1 was “A Woman Like You,” which topped the chart in its 27th week a year ago.
“I Drive Your Truck” was written byJessi Alexander, Connie Harrington & Jimmy Yeary and released by Curb on December 3, 2012 as the third single from his 2012 album HARD 2 LOVE.
In this monitored chart week it drew a 38.937 million audience receiving 6,182 plays (+39). The heaviest local audience penetration during the tracking week is 1.3 million impressions at WUSN Chicago, followed by KKBQ Houston (1.2 million), KKGO Los Angeles (860,000), WKLB Boston (667,000) and KASE Austin (654,000). Brice’s new single is approaching a half-million with 450,000 downloads sold so far—ranking at No. 12 on the Country Digital Songs tally dated April 13 after a No.11 peak the previous week. On Hot Country Songs, “Truck” has spent three weeks at its No. 6 peak position.

Darius Rucker scores his seventh top 10 on Country Airplay with “Wagon Wheel” (Capitol Nashville), his first to reach the upper tier since “This” became his fifth No. 1 two years ago. While the song clearly has momentum on the radio tally—posting the third-largest overall audience spike, up 3.2 million impressions in its 14th chart week—it’s already topped the April 13 Hot Country Songs list, posting the fattest increases in both streaming and digital activity in its 12th chart week. Rucker logged his biggest digital week with 93,000 downloads on the corresponding Country Digital Songs chart, up 19,000. The 68% streaming spike follows the March 22 music video debut. “Wheel” is the second radio single from Rucker’s TRUE BELIEVERS album, due May 21. The title track peaked at No. 17 on Country Airplay last December.

As has become the norm for new tracks that post lofty debuts as the result of coordinated hourly play at major radio chains, Blake Shelton’sBoys ’Round Here” (Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville), featuring Pistol Annies & Friends, takes a second-week dip amounting to 620,000 audience impressions, tumbling 19-22. It reached a 13.054 million audience with 1,967 spins (+262) and 30 Radio station ADDS and picked up Most Added honours for a second week. It opened with at least seven first-time spins at 66 stations, and finishes the current tracking week with 30 new airplay commitments. The song was showcased on the April 7 Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS, which Shelton co-hosted with Luke Bryan.

At the ACM’s saw Tim McGraw perform "Highway Don't Care" with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban. It won the Billboard Airplay Most Increased Audience cup  this week with a 19.219 million audience (+3.956) and received 3,224 spins (+541)

Billboard Country Digital Singles Chart Week of April 20, 2013

The duo Florida Georgia Line who performed on the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday April 7 and they also won two awards on the show. The weeks No.1 song “Cruise” moved 8-1 selling 248,295 copies, up 372% with a new total of 2,547,102. The song benefits from a remix featuring Nelly, which accounted for 75% of the song’s overall digital sales for the week (186K copies out of 248K total). It’s probably just a week away from becoming the best-selling by a country duo in digital history. It trails only Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue,” which has sold 2,618,000 copies.
“Cruise” returned to #1 on Hot Country Songs (moving up from #8 last week). This marks the second time that Nelly has collaborated with a country act. “Over And Over” by Nelly featuring Tim McGraw topped Hot Digital Songs for two weeks in the fall of 2004 (and reached #3 on the Hot 100).

Darius Rucker at No.2 continues with impressive sales moving another 98,162 copies, up 5%, of “Wagon Wheel” and was his best week yet.

The Band Perry’s exciting ACM performance of “Done” ignited a big downloads spike on the Digital Songs chart and jumped from No.20 to No.7. Sales of 66,514 were up 178% to reach 146,015 in 4 weeks at retail. It could well register another significant ACM-related jump next week.

George Strait’sGive It All We Got Tonight” moved 15-12 selling 39,722 (up 34%) and the total of 508,473 means he clocks up his first Gold-selling single in three years.

The highest debut on the chart week at No.20 went to Lennon and Maisy Stella for their version of The Lumineers’s “Ho Hey” which they recently performed in their roles on Nashville from ABC TV’s “Nashville” series.

New at No.24  selling 26,104 copies is Luke Bryan who performed “Crash My Party” at the ACM’s.

Thompson Square’sAre You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” returned to the Top 30. Its sales of 19,762; up 35%, saw it pass the 2x Platinum mark with a tally of 2,011,898. The ACM 2013 winning married couple (Keifer and Shawna Thompson) is the fourth ongoing country duo in digital history to land a 2-million-seller. The pair follows Sugarland, whose 2010 hit “Stuck Like Glue” has sold 2,618,000 copies; Florida Georgia Line, whose 2012 hit “Cruise” has sold 2,547,000; and Big & Rich, whose 2004 hit “Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)” has sold 2,083,000. “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” hit #1 on Hot Country Songs in April 2011.
