With the bowl season over and the NFL playoffs still in early stages, this week concerts once again floated to the top. Lead by Lady Gaga, whose Monster Ball Tour will mean she is a fixture of the list for months to come, concerts dominate the top 3. Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, also fixtures on the list, show no signs of slowing as they both climb significantly this week. The distinguished Mr. Bieber, whose meteoric rise to fame has yet to cool down, takes the #2 spot. As mentioned earlier this week, it was announced he will be closing out the Houston Rodeo. It has been explained to me that this is a big deal. I smiled and nodded.
Carrie Underwood returns this week, having released her latest album, Play On, in November. The former American Idol’s 2010 Tour is set to kick off in March. Though I don’t think her music will be blasting on SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! when the rather large, some might say ‘monstrous’, trucks of Monster Jam arrive at an arena near you this coming spring.
Finally the NFL does take a peek into the countdown, as Wild Card winners the Cowboys and the Saints show up in the bottom 5 in advance of their Divisional championship games this weekend. The big game itself appears at #10.
