Rodney Clawson made a determined run for No. 1, but fell slightly short, jumping from No. 4 to 2. Clawson and Jimmy Robbins, who retains the top spot for a second consecutive week, both added a fifth title to their list of active and point-producing songs. Clawson added Sheryl Crow’s “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely,” and Robbins added “Beachin’” from Jake Owen.
Taylor Swift enjoyed a large jump last week moving from No. 6 to 3, likely due to track sales from the live CMA Awards version of Red” offered on iTunes. This week the artist/writer’s position stabilizes and she maintains the No. 3 spot. (Being the sole writer means she gets credit for all the song’s chart points.) Interestingly, the next highest charting writer/artist is Cole Swindell at No. 20.
Ashley Gorley our first week No. 1, slid slightly from No. 2 to No. 4, but remains the only writer on the chart to be earning points from six active songs. Only two writers can claim five active songs—Rodney Clawson and Rhett Akins.
Momentum movers writers destined to grace the Top 10 and/or move further up are Brett James (No. 10; 3 songs), Josh Osborne (No. 11; 2 songs) and Jason Sellers (No. 14; 2 songs). Watch ’em and this week’s Biggest Gainer Troy Verges moving from 67 to 56.
