    Dear God, will that awful Aldean song never go away?

      I thought for sure that George Strait would be at #1 this week, but he is stalled at #2 behind this one for the past two weeks.

    I’m not a fan of the Jason Aldean song either but here’s a little chart trivia for you: “Big Green Tractor” is the first song to spend four weeks at number one since Brad Paisley’s “Letter To Me” in early 2008 which makes it the longest gap between two songs to spend more than three weeks at number one since the late 80s or early 90s. A lot of turnover this year. Also, this must have been Willie’s last number one, right? Well, until that Toby Keith duet anyway.

      Yes, that was Willie’s last solo effort to go to #1. The single that followed this one, “There You Are” peaked at #8 and was the last time he made the Top 10 as a solo artist.

    ET’s version of “Slipping Around” would hold the number one slot for only one week – after that the duet version by Jimmy Wakely and pop star Margaret Whiting would be #1 for 17 weeks
