Last week, with Joe Nichols was wrapping up his three-week run at Number One with “Yeah”, the two contenders to take over at the top were Billy Currington’s “We Are Tonight” and Lee Brice’s “I Don’t Dance.”

Currington’s single “We Are Tonight” had only picked up 148,000 impressions from the previous week, and was down over 3 million impressions from earlier in the week. Meanwhile, Brice’s “I Don’t Dance”, sitting at number three, had gained over 2.4 million impressions, placed only one million behind Currington, and appeared to have a good chance to jump both Currington and Nichols.

When the dust had settled, Currington received a second surge of airplay carry him to him to Number One with 65.364 million impressions, an increase of 3.330 million impressions compared to last week, and this week’s Greatest Gainer number 5 award. Lee Brice’s “I Don’t Dance” picked up 3.28 million impressions while moving from three to two. Joe Nichol’s “Yeah” fell from Number One to three.
