Welcome to this week’s Throwback Top10 Countdown results! I hope everyone reading from the United States had a fantastic Fourth of July! We have quite a different lineup this week, so let’s get right into it!
George Jones returns to #1 after bouncing around the top half of the countdown for the past three weeks. Keep in mind that for a song to receive “Certified BORN Country” status, it must hold the #1 position for three weeks in a row. However, given the length of time that “Honky Tonk Myself To Death” has been on the poll if the song slips down even one slot, it will be eliminated. Keep those votes coming in!
Two other songs re-enter the countdown this week, but are also in danger of being retired if they do not continue to climb: “Jesus And Mama” from Confederate Railroad (#2) and “If I Didn’t Have You” from Randy Travis (#10). Once again, make sure to vote if you want these songs to stay! They must climb to survive!
Alabama’s “I’m In A Hurry (And Don’t Know Why)” and Kathy Mattea’s “Lonesome Standard Time” each move ahead on the chart coming in at # 3 and #5 respectively. On the other end, Alan Jackson’s “Love’s Got A Hold On You” drops two notches to #2 along with Billy Ray Cyrus and “Could’ve Been Me,” which takes the #9 position in it’s final poll week.
Three songs make their Throwback Top10 Countdown debuts after this week’s vote. John Anderson’s essential hit, “Seminole Wind” takes #6, Mary Chapin Carpenter’s duet with Joe Diffie, “Not Too Much To Ask” comes in at #7 and finally Pam Tillis returns to the chart with “Shake The Sugar Tree” at #8. I have a feeling this won’t be the last that we see any of these three!
*I will be attending Jamboree In The Hills country music festival this coming weekend, so results will be delayed until Monday night on July 17th. Have a great week!
