ACL hangs onto the top of the list this week, on the strength of last weekend alone. The festival will likely pass out of the countdown next week. Lots of the TicketCity crew attended with rave reviews all around. I have it on good authority there were more than a few members of the team at the #3 event on the countdown this week as well.

Journey’s show last night at the Frank Erwin Center likely caused their surge to the top three this week. Fear not if you missed them, they’ll be hanging around Texas this weekend, playing shows in Dallas and Woodlands.

College football remains the biggest force on the countdown once more this week, though concert performers are creeping back to the top as the fever pitch of the early season dies down a bit. The Cowboys likewise remain steady at #6.

Taylor Swift couldn’t hold on this week, leaving the countdown for the first time in quite a while. She gives up her seat to previous countdown stalwart, Adele, who returns in that #9 spot.

Wow, football fans, I’m a little disappointed in you this week. Bieber ascendant once more while the NFL preseason is under way and we’re less than two weeks from the first college football games. The home town favorites slide in there at #2 and #3, followed by Mississippi State, who is hanging steady at #4, a fate shared by the other concert performer in the top five this week.

Quite a few holdovers from last week. Washington State climbs a couple spots to kick off the lower five. So does Taylor Swift, who tumbled to #10 last week, but has rebounded a few spots this week. She’s followed by Jason Aldean, who took a week or so off the countdown and is now back at a respectable #8. Adele’s slide continues, ending this week almost at the bottom.

Finally, peeking in at #10 is this week’s countdown newcomer, Journey. Hardly a newcomer to touring, Journey is on the road this summer after releasing a new album, Eclipse, back in May. The current tour includes special guests, and fellow classic rock hit makers, Foreigner and Night Ranger. I believe the show will provide an excellent nostalgia rush, and I will not stop doing so.

Mixing things up a bit. The Dallas faithful have put the Cowboys on top this week as NFL preseason games get underway. Pent up demand for the recently saved NFL season has been pretty impressive so far. Guess that old adage about remembering how much you appreciate something when its about to be taken away rings true this year. Dallas knocked the esteemed Mr. Bieber off his recently reclaimed perch. New and hot this week is Rascal Flatts who secure the #3 spot as their Flatts Fest Tour continues.

Mississippi State dropped a spot this week, ending up at #4, a fate avoided by Selena Gomez and Adele. Both songstresses gain this week, rounding out the top five and starting off the bottom five. They’re followed closely by another country star, Brad Paisley. No stranger to the countdown, Brad hasn’t appeared recently. He is playing some dates this September as part of the H2O II: Wetter and Wilder World Tour. The tour includes other artists like Darius Rucker, Sunny Sweeney and The JaneDear Girls.

College football teams flip a bit this week, with the Pac-12 and the Big (slightly less than) 12 represented. Taylor Swift suffers a bit of fall but still manages to hang onto the #10 spot to round things out this week.

Well, it’s the first week of August and it appears thoughts have definitely turned to football. While the esteemed Mr. Bieber did recapture the top spot, we’ve got half a countdown full of football teams, both pro and college on the list this week. The Boys move up to the second spot, and I will say the contest there was pretty tight. They may make it to the top next week. Mississippi State’s fans really came through, moving the Bulldogs up from tenth to third, a big achievement.

Katy Perry kicks off a return to our regularly scheduled concert tours, followed by Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. All three ladies have been bouncing around the top 10 for a few weeks now. If the Bulldogs were the week’s big winner, then Adele was on the other end of that equation, falling to #8 from the top spot last week.

The new football entries all ended up in the bottom five, starting with the Steelers, who have some buzz going into the recently-saved NFL season. We will see how long that buzz lasts as the month goes on. Aggies fans also have some buzz to enjoy, as does Alabama, who are considered strong favorites not only for the SEC title, but another National Championship this season.

Adele hangs onto the top spot this week. She leads off a countdown that sees a little more variety returning. Coming in second is Katy Perry, who surged to the #2 spot after a few weeks in the middle of the countdown. Katy’s California Dreams Tour continues throughout summer and on into fall and winter. It will be interesting to see if she can hang on once we get closer to football season. By the end of August, concert performers have lot more competition on the top 10.

I’m probably not breaking the news that the NFL season is back on as of… last Monday. That was reflected in the countdown this week as “America’s Team” enters at #5. While the Dallas Cowboys are the only NFL team to make it this week, there is more football to be found in the bottom half of the list.

College football makes another appearance after a brief peak from LSU back on the 15th. Fans of the storied Notre Dame football legacy are eager to see how they fare this season. The SEC’s Mississippi State Bulldogs round out the list. With the NFL back, college football will once again share the stage this season as they have most every year. While it may have been interesting to see what emerged from a college football-only season, there’s a lot of people very relieved it’s business as usual, us included.
