Here is the latest update for June 29.
With the move into Summer & the lazy crazy days that come with it, we are seeing a very lazy time on the charts for the Idols’ songs. Slow & steady seems to be the watchword.
Carrie Underwood - Last Name The song drops this week to #5. While we wait for the official adds date for Just a Dream we bide our time on Last Name. The song is beginning to pick up some steam on both AC & Top 40 formants, but they have not asked for an adds date on those formats yet either.
Josh Gracin - We Weren’t Crazy remains at #14 for the second week in a row. It is still showing strong positive upward momentum, but was flummoxed this week by the new songs from Taylor Swift & Keith Urban. It isn’t done by a long shot, I’m still thinking Top 10 is possible.
Bucky Covington - I’ll Walk This song is not walking, but instead is just crawling upwards. It moves up 1 spot this week to come in at #36. Slow, slower, slowest.
Kellie Pickler Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful drops 2 spots this week & sits just outside the Top 40 finishing the week at #41. I’m not sure why this song seems to be having so much trouble getting traction, but maybe the next couple of weeks will show some improvement.
Carrie Underwood - Just a Dream As the rumors of this being the next single become stronger, radio has begun to pick it up & it is on an upward move charting for the first time this week at #97.
Still nothing new on the horizon for Phil. In the words of John Lennon..”Most peculiar Mama.”
