7 - Detroit Tigers
8 10 Houston Texans
9 - Florida Football
10 6 W Virginia Football

Not a lot of change in the top five this week. Of course, the biggest is the ACL Fest, expectedly, dropping from the top spot and landing at #5. That showing is mostly on the strength of last weekend’s searches. While you’ve got a while until the next ACL, you’ll have more chances to get there. They announced, like Coachella, they’ll be doubling up and doing two weekends instead of one next year.

George Strait was the big winner this week, putting those young whippersnappers in their place as he climbs over them from #6 last week. His latest, and last, tour is generating a lot of buzz.

The aforementioned whippersnappers both gain a spot from the ACL drop, with the touring Bieber maintaining the same slim lead over 1D he’s had for a few weeks now.

The bottom five is all sports, mostly college football. The Tigers put in an appearance as they steamroll the Yankees on their way to a berth in The World Series, their first since 2006. Over in the NL, St. Louis could settle things tonight and make the match-up official. Either way, the World Series will be underway October 24th.

7 4 Drake
8 - Jimmy Buffet
9 - Detroit Tigers
10 - Kevin Hart

Not only did One Direction win again this week, but with the largest margin yet. They are posting numbers I rarely recall seeing before, digits that outstrip some of the biggest sporting events of the year, including one on this very list. Perhaps feeling the heat, fans of the esteemed Mr. Bieber have stepped things up, pushing him to the (still really distant) #2 spot. Credit where due, Bieber hit the second spot without any tour dates.

That sporting event alluded to earlier is the Kentucky Derby, and its little sister, the Kentucky Oaks. Together they posted #3 this week. There’s still a few weeks to get your plans set for a visit to Louisville and Churchill Downs. Two minutes of your trip are covered, the rest you can fill with the amazing sights, sounds and spectacle of Derby day.

Rangers fans are ready for the home opener, pushing them up a notch to #4, and relative countdown newcomer Beyoncé Knowles arrives in the #5 spot. Beyoncé’s return to live shows is set for the end of May in a three night stand at the brand new Revel Atlantic City casino. This promises to be a hot ticket despite the lack of English teenagers.

Springsteen stays put and once again kicks off the bottom half of the countdown, where Drake lands after dropping a few spots. Jimmy Buffet has been absent for a while, but with a new tour returns to the countdown this week. Finally, Kevin Hart takes over the comedy spot this week for Daniel Tosh who dropped off the list.

1 1 Texas Longhorns Football

5 3 Taylor Swift
6 2 Georgia Tech Football
7 8 Mississippi State Football
8 7 LSU Football
9 - Detroit Tigers
10 - Baylor Football

This week’s top 10 list is very similar to last week. The Longhorns come out on top once more, possibly with a bit of the residual TX-OU boost from last weekend. In part 2 of a very Texas top 3, we find the Rangers. They jumped up from #10 for reasons that should be clear. Their NLCS run against the Tigers will be over this weekend, one way or another. At #3 the Cowboys hang in there for another week.

Look who is climbing back up the charts to #4 this week: the esteemed Mr. Bieber. Can’t keep a pop star down, it would seem. Following close on his heels is Taylor Swift, who lost a couple spots this week, falling to #5 after peaking last week at #3.

The bottom five finds some of our recent and usual college football suspects. The Yellow Jackets, Bulldogs, and Tigers have been bouncing around the countdown for weeks now. They’re joined this week by Baylor, who squeeze into the #10 spot, just behind the other Tigers on the list, those from the Detroit.
