It’s week five in the top spot for the indefatigable Mr. Brett James whose point totals still continue to grow higher each week! Leveraging four active songs, he is surfing a songwriter tidal wave that guarantees a gold medal.
But this week’s chart has lots of interesting moves and deserving new arrivals…
>Eric Church stomps up from 17 to No. 5 primarily on the strength of “Give Me Back My Hometown” which is gaining across airplay, sales and streaming…
> Zach Crowell has been moving up the chart over the past few weeks with the style and grace of a freestyle olympic event scooting from No. 61 to 40 to 24 and this week reaching the Top 10 gateway at No. 14. Crowell has three active songs delivering his hidden power, but “Cop Car” and “See You Tonight” are doing the heavy lifting.
>And please applaud one of the youngest writers on our chart—Hunter Hayes. He is definitely not “Invisible” as the artist shoots from No. 80 to No. 25 in one week, getting our Biggest Gainer honor in the process. Also enjoying songwriters chart visibility from co-writing “Invisible” are Bonnie Baker and Katrina Elam who moved from No. 88 to 33.
