Zac Brown Band has earned themselves another week at No. 1 on the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts this week.  Can you guess which song?  Of course it’s “Keep Me in Mind.”  The single is the fourth one off their You Get What You Give album.  They tweeted

“Number nine... in the box.  Thank you country fans.  Nine out of nine.  Is that good?”

Speaking of success, Jason Aldean can’t get enough.  His single, “Dirt Road Anthem” is the most played song of 2011, according to TouchTunes Interactive Network, across every genre.  The results were based on over 900 million songs played across TouchTunes’ network of 50,000 in-venue music systems.  Other songs that made their top 10 most played list was Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” Eric Church’s “Smoke a Little Smoke,” Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long” and “Chicken Fried” by the Zac Brown Band.

Also, on the tube, today will be Ronnie Dunn. His song, “Cost of Livin’” is the subject of Dr. Phil’s show.  The episode will focus on some of the issues in Ronnie’s song and how it brings attention to real life American issues going on right now.  Ronnie, apparently, has had the song since 2008, but didn’t release it.
