3 4 Taylor Swift
4 - Super Bowl
5 2 George Strait
6 8 Ed Sheeran
7 6 Luke Bryan
8 - Jason Aldean
9 - San Antonio Rodeo
10 - Boston Bruins

The top three returns to normal, as 1D, Bieber, and Swift band together to lay down some “you shall not pass!” to this week’s top three challengers. Those include the The giant, hulking mass of The Big Game. This is a LOTR crowd right? Right?

George Strait’s shooting star falters a bit on the way to the top, falling to #5 this week. Still a strong showing, considering the rest of the countdown. No doubt longtime fans will be keeping his shows packed as this is their last chance to see him on a big tour.

Ed Sheeran climbs a couple spots to usher in the bottom five. His solo dates have heated up ahead of hopping on board Taylor Swift’s Red Tour. Ed is a busy man, between both tours he will be on stage for most of 2013.

Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean provide some additional country flavor to the countdown this week, as do most, if not all, the performers that will be filling the AT&T Center in San Antonio this February. There some OneRepublics and REO Speedwagons to add variety to the proceedings in SA.

Finally the Rangers are out and the Bruins are in for this week’s NHL team. It appears the NY/Boston rivalry has broken out here as well.

This week we have a lot of holdovers, and a surprise entry in what was formerly just a three way battle for the top. The boys from 1D take the top spot, followed by… wait… really? George Strait finds himself in unfamiliar company, climbing to the #2 spot as his last tour winds through Texas. We will see if some that hipness rubs off on George, sandwiched as he is between 1D and the esteemed Mr. Bieber. George’s sudden rise pushes Taylor Swift down to #4, while the Falcons ride some NFL playoff glory to the #5 spot.

Luke Bryan’s debut headlining tour gains three spots to start off the bottom five this week. The Houston Rodeo holds steady at #7. Perhaps only slightly coincidentally he will be playing at the Houston Rodeo, as will George Strait.

A little pop folk from England shows up at #8. Ed Sheeran, who will be opening for Taylor Swift upcoming Red Tour, has some solo dates around the country before that, and is gathering some momentum of his own.

As you may have heard by now, the NHL had decided to do that whole “playing hockey” thing this season after all. The New York Rangers just squeeze into the Top 10 as a result. Can’t really remember any hockey team breaking into the Top 10 in years past, so they have that going for them after the lockout.
