The9513 Last FM Group – Chart Update

95132 The9513 Last FM Group has a new chart update posted, summarized by yours truly. If you haven’t joined this group yet, head on over and join up with us now. And here’s my little run-down of the happenings on our very own country chart, 9513 style:

Membership is still climbing on the9513’s Last FM group – we are up to 35 members and counting. And King George still reigns supreme on the9513 group chart this week., holding the #1 artist spot and 3 of the top 20 albums.

Standing behind the King, we find Sugarland, Garth Brooks, Lee Ann Womack, and Brooks & Dunn in the top 5. Scrolling down, we find one of the most eclectic mixes of artists I’ve seen on our group chart, Artists like Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt, Wynonna Judd, Coldplay, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Barenaked Ladies, Rosanne Cash, Merle Haggard, and hundreds more make appearances.

Brad Paisley’s 5th Gear is the top album with 9 listeners. Josh Turner, Brooks & Dunn, Taylor Swift, and Keith Urban occupy the #2 through #5 spots. Some other great albums members are listening to include Trisha Yearwood’s Heaven, Heartache, and the Power of Love, Coal by Kathy Mattea, Julie Roberts’ self-titled debut, and my favorite Tim McGraw album, Set This Circus Down has 7 listeners.

Kathy Mattea charts nearly every track from her concept album, Coal this week. Her best showing is ‘Sally In The Garden’, digging up 5 listeners. The top 3 tracks all have 8 listeners, but Taylor Swift rides her ‘White Horse’ to the front; while Lee Ann Womack’s ‘Last Call’ and Sugarland’s ‘All I Want To Do’ are right on her heels. Swift’s ‘Love Story’ and Jimmy Wayne’s #1 radio hit ‘Do You Believe Me Now’ round out our top 5. Some really great tracks are scattered among some real crap (but that’s just this writer’s opinion, of course) in the track chart. A sample of the really great tracks include Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson’s ‘Sweetest Waste Of Time’, Reba McEntire’s ‘Lonely Alone’, ‘I’ve Come To Expect it From You’ from King George. Also, Joe Diffie’s ‘In Another World’ and Dolly Parton’s ‘Here You Come Again’ are certainly worth listening to.

The entire chart can be seen here.

    Yep, I finally got Rattlin’ Bones this week! I was not disappointed, and I’m sure it will find its way onto my year-end album list.

    “Sally In The Garden”? Really? Interesting, but I love the vocal tracks on Coal much better, even though the instrumental is great too. (Listening to “Red-Winged Black Bird” right now).

    Nice run-down, you always do a good job!

    Don’t know how you do it JR! You manage to make charts come alive! It’s like reading the script of a good sports play by play!

    (BTW, love the snowflakes and the way they follow your cursor!)
