Blue Ain't Your Colour is probably the worst song I've heard this year, put me completely off getting into Keith's music.

Interestingly enough, I just heard "80s Mercedes" about a half hour ago, and I enjoyed it. I agree that it's more pop than country, though.

"Better Man" is fantastic! It took a while to grow on me, but once it did, I never looked back.
Keith Urban: :lol: :lol: I noticed that that this song was very high in your chart (even #1 IIRC). It's his most successful single in years. The fact remains that it's a polarizing song for the Country format; but it's not a bad song.
Maren Morris: It definitely is Pop and doesn't belong to Country radio.
Little Big Town: Agree with you! It's a real grower. Fun fact: written by Taylor Swift ( :o ) 8-)

Where have you been? :cry: Haven't seen you around in ages! :wink:
Keith Urban: Start with his early albums, like Golden Road or Be Here. His latest album Ripcord (which is doing pretty well) is just an insult to the genre.

Wes Mack: Poor guy, he lands one flop after the other... ! Kind of like the rockier edge of his songs.
He's actually an actor (Wesley MacInnes) and probably best known for being Icicle on Smallville.

Thanks for your kind words, but I'm just a beginner and steadily learning and expanding into Alternative/Americana.
Trust me, some fellow posters from Chart Analysis are true beasts when it comes to Legacy Country.

Well I'll stick with your chart for now as you seem very nicely seasoned in this genre!

# 269 - All Day All Night River Whyless
How cute, might give this a download, curious to see what is higher. :D

"Dirty Laundry" is quite a bit off from Carrie's best, but still good.

I'm very happy she gave it to them, as I can't really see Taylor doing the song justice.
And the category is: LIVE. WORK. POSE!

Out of the songs in the top 415 so far these are songs I already knew and like:

# 399 - Yeah Boy Kelsea Ballerini - Black River
# 397 - Summer Cassadee Pope - Republic Nashville // BMLG
# 393 - Said No One Ever Jana Kramer - Elektra Nashville | WAR
# 391 - Love Triangle RaeLynn - Warner Bros. | WMN
# 376 - Better Man Little Big Town - Capitol Nashville (Not sure about this one, but at least I've heard it)
# 370 - Comeback Kid The Band Perry - Mercury Nashville
# 356 - Circles Jana Kramer - Elektra Nashville | WAR
# 355 - Live It While You Got It Josh Abbott Band - Pretty Damn Tough
# 351 - Pain Killer Little Big Town - Capitol Nashville
# 337 - Grace & Grit Meghan Patrick - Warner Music Canada
# 328 - Dibs Kelsea Ballerini - Black River
# 320 - Smoke Break Carrie Underwood - 19 | Arista Nashville
# 311 - Watcha Wanna Do About It Madeline Merlo - Open Road
# 308 - I Am Invincible Cassadee Pope - Republic Nashville
# 283 - Sierra Maddie & Tae - Dot | Republic Nashville // BMLG
# 268 - Shut Up And Fish Maddie & Tae - Dot

Checked out these:

# 354 - Black Bird Tori Forsyth - Tori Forsyth
# 272 - I Didn't Fall In Love With Your Hair Brett Kissel Featuring Carolyn Dawn Johnson - Warner Music Canada

Neither of them "got me". Carolyn Dawn Johnson had a hit on my chart 14 years ago ("One Day Closer to You"). Didn't hear much of her in this new song though.

Glad you liked it. 8-)
Requested this on a Country radio show and now they play it regularly; although it's very Alternative Country. 8-)
You'll probably will find more songs when the albums are counted down as the more progressive acts don't release singles but promote albums as a whole.

I quite like "Dirty Laundry"... :wink:
Taylor/Little Big Town: You're probably right; Little Big Town did a great job.

Thanks, Magnus! :D
Tori Forsyth: It's the simplicity and throwback appeal of instrumentation and storytelling which makes it stand out. (Obviously, radio would never play something like this).
Brett Kissel: This song is gorgeous and shows a totally different side from this artist (who is fast becoming one of my top notch favourites. Pretty sure he will break out big in the United States with his next album.) It's a true story and the songs is helping to get funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. Pretty sure this will go head to head with Dean Brody's "Time" for Song Of The Year at the forthcoming Canadian Country Music awards.
On my chart it gave Brett Kissel his first Top 10 hit and it's looking good to hit #1 sometime soon. 8-)
Yes, Carolyn Dawn Johnson had a string of smaller hits in the States; I think it's a nice gesture from Brett Kissel to give her a featuring credit.

Got to upload three songs to YouTube now. Will update whenever I can spare a minute.

Oh okay. Didn't know "Traveller" came out that 'long' ago. Or better said it didn't feel like it's been out for so long.

# 337 - Grace & Grit Meghan Patrick
# 328 - Dibs Kelsea Ballerini
# 320 - Smoke Break Carrie Underwood
# 285 - Dirty Laundry Carrie Underwood

It's probably no surprise to see me being a little fan of Carrie's entries, but i'm very happy to see these appearances here and i think it's quite safe to say they won't be her last entries. At least i don't hope so :wink:
Other than that, i'm only familiar with two other entries since my last comment... :oops:
