It’s CMA Music Festival week in Nashville, and the town is buzzing with activity. After the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday (6/6), show co-host Toby Keith’s “Beers Ago” emerges as the CountryBreakout Chart’s new No. 1 song. Brantley Gilbert’s “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” moves up to No. 2 as last week’s No. 1 “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” by Eli Young Band slips to No. 3. Dierks Bentley’s “5-1-5-0” pushes forward to No. 4, followed by another CMT show performer with the Band Perry’s “Postcard From Paris” at No. 5.
Other show performers fared well in this edition of the chart. Kenny Chesney’s sultry “Come Over” picked up the biggest spin increase and moved to No. 12 in its fourth week charting. Lady Antebellum performed the show opening with “We Owned The Night,” and the group’s latest single “Wanted You More” is up to No. 19. One of the night’s most memorable performances came from Little Big Town, whose summer-ready “Pontoon” motorboated up to No. 21.
Zac Brown Band debuted its new single “The Wind” on the show, and the song picked up the week’s highest debut at No. 54. Rascal Flatts closed the show with Journey on a medley of “Banjo” and “Don’t Stop Believin’” and now the trio’s new single “Come Wake Me Up is at No. 31.
Hank Williams Jr. also got a performance slot on the show and debuts at No. 73 with “That Ain’t Good.” Other debuts include Mark Wayne Glasmire’s “I Like You” at No. 75, The Mavericks’ “Born To Be Blue” at No. 78, T.J. Maddux’s “Hotter Than Fireworks” at No. 79, and Gwen Sebastian’s “Met Him in a Motel Room” at No. 80.
Kudos to Bold Gold Media’s Thunder 102 WDNB/Liberty, NY on being a winner at Radio Ink’s second annual Digital Awards held earlier this week in California. Thunder 102 was awarded for the “Most Original Database/Digital Marketing Campaign” for its campaign to promote Brad Paisley’s concert at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Listeners had the opportunity to win tickets by locating the Paisley promotional listing on the station’s website and listening to the audio montage.
“We’re honored to receive this recognition. At Bold Gold we’re committed to providing the most advanced and exciting listener and sponsor experience…on air, online and in the mobile space,” said Bold Gold President Vince Benedetto.
