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.
