Luke Bryan remains #1 with “That’s My Kind Of Night” for a third week. The star is joined by Blake Shelton and Florida Georgia Line with a pair of songs -- each -- in the Top 10, Florida Georgia Line contain two of the Top 5 tracks.

Luke Bryan has a third consecutive week of sales eclipsing 100,000 tracks with “That’s My Kind Of Night” (now a Top 10 radio airplay hit) quickly approaching Gold certification with digital track sales now over 402,000 copies. Chances are next week we’ll see the superstar break the Gold certification mark next week and it’ll have taken only 4 weeks to get there. Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” and “Round Here” sit #2 and #4, respectively, on this week’s chart with Thomas Rhett’s Gold-certified break-out “It Goes Like This” in between them at #3. “Cruse” has sold nearly 5.8 million tracks while “Round Here” has moved 662k and “It Goes Like This” has moved 586k to date. Rounding out the Top 5 is Jason Aldean’s latest hit, “Night Train.” The single has now sold 431k and will also be a certified Gold single in short order.

Blake Shelton Controls two of the Top 2’s slots with “Mine Would Be You” and “Boys Round Here.” Darius Rucker “Wagon Wheel” returns to Top 10.

“Mine Would Be You” is one of two singles in the Country Top 10 that scored any sort of sales incerase with a gain of 4% (“Round Here” from FGL was the other sales gainer). The single has now sold 251k and with the song still rising up the radio airplay charts, it seems likely to attain at least Gold, if not Platinum, for Blake Shelton. Luke Bryan’s “Crash My Party” single continues to be Top 10 and surpassed the 1.3 million sold mark this week. Meanwhile, Tyler Farr’s breakout hit “Redneck Crazy” sits at #8, Blake Shelton’s nearly Double Platinum “Boys Round Here” is at #9 and Darius Rucker’s “Wagon Wheel” -- which has sold nearly 2.2 million tracks -- sits at #10.

Cole Swindell “Chillin’ It” Breaks Into Top 30, This week’s Riser of the Week. Cassadee Pope, Justin Moore, Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line debut in Top 30 with new singles.

There aren’t any new Gold or Platinum sales reports this week but there are a slew of new singles debuting on the chart this week. First up -- at #18 --  is Cassadee Pope with the personal “11.” The track showcases the singer’s natural vulnerability and why she’s a Country singer instead of a Pop singer (those songs simply don’t play as well on the Pop charts). She sold over 21k tracks last week. Right behind her is Dierks Bentley at #21 with “I Hold On,” the new ‘lead’ single from Riser. The single has moved 22k to date but in the first official week on this chart, it moved 19k downloads. Justin Moore sits at #25 with “Off The Beaten Path.” The track sold 16k downloads this past week at iTunes alone, giving the singer’s fans an early listen via Pre-Order to the title track to his September 17th release. Elsewhere, Cole Swindell sits at #29 for the first time with rising hit “Chillin’ It.” The single has now sold 207k with it also barely inside Country’s Top 40 of the Airplay charts. Finally, the buzzworthy cover of Alabama’s “I’m In A Hurry (And Don’t Know Why)” Debuts from Florida Georgia line at #30 with 13,000 fans taking home the single from the #8 album -- Alabama And Friends -- in the Top 200 Albums chart.
