No it should enter the 30s this week, its at #43 now.

http://kworb.net/radio/ is a good source for charts. So is http://www.fmqb.com/Article.asp?id=255602 and http://www.allaccess.com/login?for=%2Fcountry%2Fmediabase (but you gotta sign up for that one). Those are all Mediabase updated daily.

A good summary for Billboard, only updated weekly, is http://secure.randr.com/bdsradiocharts/cha...&height=500



Ok cool thanks original.gif I like seeing where everyone is on the charts and how songs are doing.

Question--it seems from what I have been reading over these months, CAD is not usually in Scotty's set. Is this because he doen't need another ballad in his set or he is saving it for a fall release as a single?

I'm starting to wonder the same thing! Its weird he stopped singing it Live. Maybe its just too sad for Summer. If it is indeed a Fall surprise single I think there will be alot of very happy people here!

Scotty did say a few days ago that he had big news coming shortly for his fans. Could be CAD as last single this fall. He has avoided singing it like the plague lately - could be.......

Happy for Scotty, but sad for george crying.gif

I understand why George's song is doing well, it's an antidrinking song and it seems everything on radio is about promoting drinking...or trucks of course rolleyes.gif
still a great message though...I guess people don't want to hear about their vices.


C'mon Scotty let's at least go into the 30's..

As someone who drinks a couple wines on holidays, an occasional strawberry daiqui, and try to down a shot (but never make it) on the Marine Corps birthday:

I like drinking songs, I like anti-drinking songs. I like whatever is done well and done COUNTRY.

I get upset when Scotty isn't recognized by country radio; but I just get plain sad when George and Alan aren't. Oh wait a minute, I know the problem: They haven't paid their dues!

Okay, that was funny!! But sort of not. unsure.gif I honestly think that with George, it's the song. My hubbie, who is a huge King George fan has said from day 1 that Drinking Man was the wrong choice for a single. Radio just seems to want upbeat songs right now...

Come on, radio, spin WTT, please... innocent.gif

"Drinkin' Man" should have had never been a single. "Shame on Me" would have done alot better. But radio has proven time and again that if you are in their "A list" they will play and drive a song to #1 no matter how wrong of timing it is or even how bad it is. George is gone from Country radio's A list just like Alan, Reba, Vince, and so many of the acts who came up in the 80s and 90s who made us fall in love with Country. They have largely been replaced by wanna be pop/rock acts who couldn't make it in that world so they went Country instead cause its "easier." They are the ones radio is foaming at the mouth over and why radio is ignoring artists who are trying to bring back Country's true sound like Scotty is. Bradley Gaskin is another example, he just lost is deal, but if it was 10 years ago his song "Mr Bartender" woulda gone top 10. Chris Young who has had a string of #1s all of a sudden is being knocked off the A list and back to the B list just cause "Neon" is a more traditional song. Today's Country radio wants music with pop hooks, rock guitar licks, and voice without nasal or twang. If that is what Country music is now than I no longer can call myself a Country fan and mean what it means today, just what it meant when Country was still Country.

I'm glad WTT is still hanging in there, but hate it had to jump over George. Thats not right on any level. Its interesting how WTT and Jon Pardi keep swaping spots, whoever that is, I have no idea. Josh Thompson's song is also in rapid fail mode. Scotty will easily make the top 40 now, be it this week or next.

""House across the Bay" would probably have done better or "Shame on Me"...
It almost seems like when an artist reaches a certain age, they get "fired" from radio..it's just disqusting really.

Yes. If you are between the ages of 25 and 40, radio will look at ya first as an artist. If you are below 25 then radio needs more convincing. If you are over 40, then you better already have an established fanbase ya got before you hit 40 in order to be played, then you may get free pass to age 50. After 50, you're done. George is so famous they let him to to 60. Once an artist enters the Hall of Fame, thats pretty much the graveyard for radio stars. Reba, Vince, George, Dolly, etc all got suddenly far less popular on radio playlists as soon as they entered that stage of their careers. Speaking of Hall of fame, why the heck isn't Kenny Rogers or Ronnie Milsap in there but Vince Gill is? They had success 20 years before he ever had a #1! Back to the point, age discrimination in music on all formats has been around for generations. When Alan and Garth came onto radio, then George Jones, Cash, Hank Jr, and Haggard were dropped off of it. Even the biggest stars get 15 to 20 years max to make an impact before radio moves on. There was that huge surge of 90s women who became successful in that decade, but it was at the exense of Loretta, Tammy, Dolly, Barbara, etc getting dropped off radio. The only exception to the ageism rule in Country's history in the last 30 years was KT Oslin who was 48 when she had her first top 10 hit and had a 5 year string of hits from 87-92. Then of course she was swept off radio once the 90s female surge hit. Where did the females go after the 90s were over? Thats a whole other long discussion.

I wonder what will happen with those who started as teens like Scotty, Taylor, etc. Leann Rimes could be an example. She started at 13 and by 20 she was dried up on radio. I hope thats not the case with Scotty and Taylor but the music business is so evil it could happen. Thats why its great Scotty is getting a degree to fall back on. Many Country singers have had success and then radio killed it, but then they went on to have successful careers in the real world.

If you are over 40, then you better already have an established fanbase ya got before you hit 40 in order to be played, then you may get free pass to age 50. After 50, you're done. George is so famous they let him to to 60. Once an artist enters the Hall of Fame, thats pretty much the graveyard for radio stars. Reba, Vince, George, Dolly, etc all got suddenly far less popular on radio playlists as soon as they entered that stage of their careers. Speaking of Hall of fame, why the heck isn't Kenny Rogers or Ronnie Milsap in there but Vince Gill is? They had success 20 years before he ever had a #1! Back to the point, age discrimination in music on all formats has been around for generations. When Alan and Garth came onto radio, then George Jones, Cash, Hank Jr, and Haggard were dropped off of it. Even the biggest stars get 15 to 20 years max to make an impact before radio moves on. There was that huge surge of 90s women who became successful in that decade, but it was at the exense of Loretta, Tammy, Dolly, Barbara, etc getting dropped off radio. The only exception to the ageism rule in Country's history in the last 30 years was KT Oslin who was 48 when she had her first top 10 hit and had a 5 year string of hits from 87-92. Then of course she was swept off radio once the 90s female surge hit. Where did the females go after the 90s were over? Thats a whole other long discussion.

I wonder what will happen with those who started as teens like Scotty, Taylor, etc. Leann Rimes could be an example. She started at 13 and by 20 she was dried up on radio. I hope thats not the case with Scotty and Taylor but the music business is so evil it could happen. Thats why its great Scotty is getting a degree to fall back on. Many Country singers have had success and then radio killed it, but then they went on to have successful careers in the real world.

As sad as all this news makes me, I'm happy by following Scotty's career, I'm able to learn as much as I have been. (depressing as it is...the truth shall set you free right?)

I suppose it's like that in all the entertainment world.... no.gif

i dont like radio much myself, but imo i think it is a bit of a combination of radio plus single that didnt really appeal to scottys fan bass, thats just my opinion. i hope mercury nashville can find a good mix of a song that represents scotty, and appeals to his fan base. i know scotty has fans of all ages but i dont see the screaming fangirls necessarily liking wtt, just mo. But cad is still selling so people still like scotty so hopefully the next single will be better, and radio will get on board. Radio did take this song to the mid forties fairly quickly but since then it hasnt moved, i reguested it a couple of days ago, and they said they werent playing it because it had declined in popularity, even the video isnt doing great. So i hope scottys team realizes that it just isnt radio, i think the song hasnt totally connected with scottys fans, and thats part of the problem. look at hunter hayes single, good song, perfect for his fan base

YMTLG would have had the fangirls going wild. Imagine how the Summer video woulda been. I really think it'd be in the top 20 right now had that happened. I know looking back at what might have been won't help anything now, but I hope Mercury learns this lesson. I just hate how his label made such a horrific mistake at the very last minute when YMTLG was the plan all Winter, just to change it at the last minute. Its always best to "go with your first instinct" and Mercury didn't do that, they waffled for a still unknown reason. Its a shame Scotty had to pay for it by not having a hit on the radio all Summer long. It really makes me mad. Hopefully the new CEO will have more common sense and his history proves he could keep this mistake from happening again.

I thought the reason they pulled it was because it received a "tepid" response at the radio event in February..
I forgot the name (the one where George Strait was) the UMG t hing...

personally (and I'm a very cynical person so forgive me) I think they told the label that but they weren't going to play anything he released...
Why would YMTLG get a tepid response??? It's a peach pickers song, it totally fits in with the rest of the music on pseudo radio...I think they (meaning radio) sabatoged him purposelly.
The label wanted to release YMTLG, they (radio) didn't want it...according to what I heard...I beleive Windmills was the one who said it..

There may have been some who didn't want it, just cause it was from Scotty, so they wouldn't have played it anyway. I think that attitude scared Mercury and they thought a last minute move would work, it didn't. If Mercury had just given YMLTG a chance I really believe it would have taken off quicker cause its more relateble to the masses, instead of a song about a small town and its water tower. A song about filrting with a hot girl always wins.

I know it is ultimately the label's decision, but I still think Scotty campaigned for it. He talked about how Brad told him to sing what he knows and he always said he was most connected to WTT. Also, I heard the comment that it was well received at the concerts. But, it was the first song he sang while walking on stage, so the reception was probably more for him than the song.

As far as having something to fall back on Of course, I agree with that. But, even if you aren't in the top of the charts, you can still make a decent living in the music business and for a long time. Scotty mentioned when he was finishing up his Idol run, that many of past Idols told him they were making a living doing what they loved even though they really aren't household names anymore. If you're only going to be happy as a top earner, then that's another matter. I think of some of the previously big names in country music that I've seen show up in local honky tonks here in rural Ohio, I think, well heck, they're still around doing what they love. Good for them Of course, it also makes sense to invest and diversify like Toby Keith has done.
