The NCAA Tournament always has trouble making a big dent in the countdown until the end, when everyone can focus on that single, most evocative of phrases: Final Four. Easier than splitting attention among sixty-odd teams, for example. This year the Final Four is “up the road” from us in Arlington, so it has an even stronger advantage securing the #1 spot this week. While it easily defeated Eminem, it will be likely be a short-lived victory.

The remainder of the countdown is almost all new this week. Landing in third place is 5 Seconds of Summer. They’ve briefly appeared once before. Their April tour is only week and some change away from rolling through Dallas.

The MLB lands two spots on the countdown as we’ve just passed Opening Day. The Rangers secure forth place, while the Dodgers lag a little down in ninth place.

Miley Cyrus’ tour is in full swing, but Luke Bryan fans have to exercise a little patience until May. They’re joined by the more loyal Roemo Santos fans, who manage to keep him on the countdown for a second week in the row. Coachella pops up as the first of the two weekends is just one week away. Finally the announcement of a new tour and reunion with Christine McVie, Fleetwood Mac just makes it into tenth place.

10th place is good enough for a Fleetwood Mac video, because I don’t have to worry about content screening. Another one with Christine McVie on lead vocals, “Everywhere.” Bit more ambitious on the video side, with a setting and costumes that have a Shakespearean vibe. Not Shakespearean, though, the story is based on the narrative poem “The Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes. Yes, I looked that up on Wikipedia.

Another week with a winner able to be seen from miles away. George Strait’s final tour gets underway early next year, and tickets have gone on sale, including for our little local venue, the Erwin Center. ACL hung in there, as it usually does for the week after it’s over, and Drake climbed up a few spots to make it to #3.

The Cowboys had to make room, but remained at a respectable #4, joined by Pearl Jam at #5. Their latest album, Lightning Bolt, arrived on (mostly digital) shelves on the 14th. The Lightning Bolt Tour is in full swing. Fans have until early December to catch them in North America before they enjoy the warm summer air in Australia in January.

Pink drops by once more. She rescheduled a few concerts for a little vocal cord rest, but the remainder of The Truth About Love Tour appears to be safe.

Elton returns, while the 49ers end up just one spot lower. Finally, the Dodgers hang on to the countdown, barely, while their NCLS hope hang by a similarly thin thread.

This week it’s obviously time for a little classic country, hand-picked by our office’s biggest George Strait fan:

The first notes of ACL Weekend Two’s Friday lineup should be drifting out of Zilker Park by the time I finish writing this. Some band called The Orwells, to be specific. ACL doesn’t hand out the coveted 11am Friday spot to just anyone, people. With two weekends this year, ACL allows me to recycle content as effectively as they recycle bands.

The Cowboys recycle their position on the countdown, while the NLCS bound Dodgers drop in to capture the third spot. Their NLCS series is with the Cardinals. The Tigers sowed up their ALDS matchup with Oakland last night, so they’re on to face the Red Sox in the ALCS.

The tradition of the Red River Rivalry continues this weekend, pushing it to the #4 spot, while the local touring production of Book of Mormon drops to the #5 spot.

Drake returns while George Strait falls a couple of spots, sharing a similar fate as Cher, who loses one as well. The 49ers continue drifting around the bottom five. The Tigers of LSU début this week, in 10th place, but it’s still a début.

This week we’re doing dealer’s choice on ACL performers, mostly because I’ve already posted videos for the other concert performers that ranked this week (I think). So I’m picking an old Neko Case song:
