"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.

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."
