No difference at the top, but the rest of the countdown experienced some big changes. George Strait holds down #1. It will be interesting to see if he can mount a One Direction-esque, months long stay at the top. Two weeks down, many more to go. Former number one Drake is knocking politely at that door as well, jumping one spot to second place.
The World Series drops in at #3. The Cardinals and the Red Sox are tied up at one game each, making game five a reality. Who will come out on top? I have no idea, fortunately we have others making far more educated guesses.
The 49ers, to use an inappropriate sports analogy, rebound to 4th place, where they are the final survivor of last week’s countdown. The shake-up, while major, didn’t deliver many completely new faces. This week’s college football entrant is Baylor, joined by the familiar faces of Jason Aldean, Peal Jam, JT, and Luke Bryan.
The one complete (I think) newcomer this week is Widespread Panic. They are playing ACL dates this weekend (the show, not the festival), so I’m pretty sure that’s what pushed them into the 9th spot. What can I say, the locals have a bit an affinity for jam bands.
Here they are doing a seven minute cover of a three-and-a-half minute song with a different song at the end. So, yeah, jam band…
