Top 5 Country Singles

  1. Taylor Swift - "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"
  2. Florida Georgia Line - "Cruise"
  3. Cassadee Pope - "Over You"
  4. Luke Bryan - "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye"
  5. Hunter Hayes - "Wanted"

Big Chart Movers

  • #49-#37 Carrie Underwood - "Two Black Cadillacs"
  • #50-#42 Maggie Rose - "I Ain't Your Mama"
  • #48-#41 Chris Young - "I Can Take It From There"
  • #46-#40 Florida Georgia Line - "Get Your Shine On"

Hot New Country Songs

  • #3 Cassadee Pope - "Over You"
  • #25 George Strait - "Give It All We Got Tonight"
  • #48 Lady Antebellum - "A Holly Jolly Christmas"


"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" remains at #1 for its eighth week in a row. That puts Taylor Swift on equal footing with Connie Smith, whose 1964 song "Once a Day" previously held the title as the longest #1 charting song by a solo female country artist. Making a debut this week in the top 5 is Voice contestant Cassadee Pope, whose version of "Over You" (from Miranda Lambert's Four the Record) rung in at #3.

Top 5 Country Albums

  1. Taylor Swift - Red
  2. Jason Aldean - Night Train
  3. Carrie Underwood - Blown Away
  4. Blake Shelton - Cheers, It's Christmas
  5. Lady Antebellum - On This Winter's Night

Hot New Country Albums

  • #33 Uncle Kracker - Midnight Special
  • #70 Various Artists - Christmas in the Country
  • #74 Slidawg - Slidawg's Redneck Christmas


Carrie Underwood's Blown Away breezes into the #3 spot -- up from #8. But besides that, there were only minor shifts in the top 5 country album lineup compared to last week. Further down the rankings, Uncle Kracker debuted his new album Midnight Special at #33.

Country's Highest Ranking Radio Songs

  • #13 Taylor Swift - "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"
  • #18 Florida Georgia Line - "Cruise"
  • #20 Jake Owen - "The One That Got Away"
  • #22 Luke Bryan - "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye"
  • #24 Rascal Flatts - "Come Wake Me Up"

Big Radio Chart Movers

  • None this week!

Hot New Radio Country Songs

  • #67 The Band Perry - "Better Dig Two"
  • #68 Jason Aldean - "The Only Way I Know"
  • #72 Dierks Bentley - "Tip It on Back"
  • #74 Little Big Town - "Tornado"


Briefly: Miranda Lambert's "Fastest Girl in Town" drops out of the top 5 country songs on the radio altogether -- while Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" slid from #22 to #18, putting it in a position the country band must be getting used to: playing second fiddle to Taylor Swift at #13 with "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."
