After a slight delay, your votes have been counted and these are the songs that YOU picked for this week’s Throwback Top10 Countdown! After returning to #1 once again, George Jones and “Honky Tonk Myself To Death” has fallen completely off of the chart, making room for a new top song. Stepping into the spotlight is Kathy Mattea’s 1992 single, “Lonesome Standard Time.” This isn’t Mattea’s first dance at #1 on our countdown and it will be interesting to see if her fans can keep her there!
Once again, Alan Jackson’s “Love’s Got A Hold On You” climbs back up to #2 this week. This could very well be the final week for this one as another Jackson classic is right around the corner. Making an unexpected jump from #7 to #3 is Mary Chapin Carpenter’s 1992 duet with Joe Diffie, “Not Too Much To Ask.” This one will definitely be another contender for the top position if both fan bases continue to keep this one hot!
Wynonna re-enters the countdown with one of her most iconic hits, “No One Else On Earth.” This classic was on the verge of retirement last week, but Wynonn’s fans kept it alive! Alabama’s “I’m In A Hurry (And Don’t Know Why)” slipped a few spots from #3, landing in #7, while Pam Tillis and “Shake The Sugar Tree” continue to climb, moving up from #8 to #6.
This week’s countdown is loaded with new songs! Brooks And Dunn, Tanya Tucker, Hal Ketchum and Lorrie Morgan each have a song making its first appearance on the chart. With a stacked list of songs being added to the poll, including John Michael Montgomery’s debut, “Life’s A Dance,” next week is going to be a close call!
