Taylor Swift keeps her ice-cold grip on the country singles chart with "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." It remains at #1. Florida Georgia Line likewise keep on trucking; "Cruise" weighs in at #2, same as last week. Meanwhile, Luke Bryan inches up one spot to #3 with "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye," but Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" flagged somewhat. The title track from her latest album dipped down from #3 to #5.
