What a week of voting for this week’s Throwback Top10 Countdown! While many of the songs making the chart this week were incredible competitive with each other over the last seven days, one in particular stood out. You guessed it: Ricky Van Shelton’s “Wear My Ring Around Your Neck” brought in an incredible 81% of the total votes! This secures its spot as yet another “Certified BORN Country” hit for Shelton and his fans!
Making another jump this week, Alan Jackson climbs two positions with “Love’s Got A Hold On You” from #4 to #2. With the top position being up for grabs next week, with Jackson’s fans boost him up one more spot? The two great Georges of country music followed in at #3 and #4 this week, seeing George Strait’s “So Much Like My Dad” and George Jones coming in next with “Honky-Tonk Myself To Death.” Strait’s song will be retired in order to make way for his next HUGE song coming soon!
Billy Ray Cyrus and his 1992 hits follow-up to “Achy Breaky Heart” holds strongly onto the #6 position for another week. This 90’s radio classic is on the verge of being retired if Billy Ray’s fans don’t continue to shoot the song upwards! Vince Gill also remains from last week’s countdown, coming in at #7 with “I Still Believe In You.”
A whopping four new songs join the Top10 Countdown this week. Alabama, Wynonna Judd, Kathy Mattea and Clint Black each find a position with great 90’s country classics. What will the future hold for these four? That’s up to your vote!
