    After what I said last week (the 1958 charts being bland for how long the songs at #1 were staying that way), I’ve got some nice words to eat upon seeing Don Gibson. Seems like if you went to #1 in ’58, you had to be either him, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, or Faron Young.

    And for cryin’ out loud… how much longer can Florida Georgia Line SENSELESSLY HOG THE TOP at the expense of other singles? I give it about… well, given that it’s been on the top since late last year, I’d say an eternity.

      I don’t know and I don’t care how long that song–which seems to be credited primarily to Bebe Rexha, and secondarily to Fla.-Ga. Line–will be at the top of whatever chart it’s topping, but I can assure you that it will be gone long before anything approaching an eternity
