Jerrod Niemann sets weekly impression record on Country Chart

Jerrod Niemann sets a new weekly impression on the Country Chart with 'I Could Drink To That All Night'.
2011 Country Music Awards

Even though the total dropped slightly by the end of the week, Jerrod Niemann's “ I Could Drink To That All Night” still set a weekly record for the greatest number of impressions ever on the Country Chart. The song finished the week ending April 19 with 73.087 million impressions, which represented a gain of 1.896 million over the week ending April 12. At one point between April 13 and April 19, Niemann topped out at nearly 73.4 million impressions, which was enough for the song to reach the Top 15 on the overall Airplay Chart, combining all songs from all formats across America, which is extremely rare for tracks from the Country format without the support of crossover airplay.

Impression record could be challenged next week

Despite Niemann's record audience total this week, the song at number two has a good chance of rewriting the Country impressions record rather quickly. Last week, Brantley Gilbert's “Bottoms Up” earned 69.934 million impressions, and was the greatest gainer within the Top 50. rising 5.356 million impressions from the chart week ending April 12. If Brantley Gilbert can sustain his momentum, which is also fueled by impressive totals on the Digital Singles Chart (approaching one million downloads) and streaming support strong enough to reach the Top 50 Streaming Songs Chart, Country radio could push “Bottoms Up” close to 75 million impressions at the songs peak.

How the rankings are compiled

This Top 50 Country Chart uses Mediabase data provided to All Access from the period of Sunday, April 13 through Saturday, April 19. Songs are ranked by audience impressions. All stations reporting to Mediabase, not just the “published” stations are included in the rankings, and Currents and Recurrents are ranked together. Should two tracks tie in impressions, the song with the higher spin total wins the tie-breaker.

Chart Legend

For this chart, songs that gain are listed in BOLD, followed by a “+” after its impression total. Songs losing in audience are not printed in bold, and are given a “--” sign behind its impressions total. Impressions are listed in millions: TW = This Week, LW = Last Week, GG = Greatest Gainers, #1-#5, BL = Biggest Loser, R = Recurrents, NE = New Entry, and RE = Re Entry. The five Greatest Gainers and the week's biggest loser display the change in audience from the previous week.
