Based On Your Votes, Here Are The Throwback Top10 Countdown Results For The Week Of 10/23/17!
Make sure to check in at the official BORN Country Facebook page on Wednesday, Oct. 25th at 9PM ET when Arthur goes “LIVE” to announce the next evolution of BORN Country!
Welcome to BORN Country’s weekly Throwback Top10 Countdown! My apologies for the delay in this week’s results, but as some of you were aware from the Facebook page, this weekend marked the one-year anniversary of my wife and I tying the knot last year, so celebrating took priority over the countdown. However, we are back in gear and we have a lot of changes to cover in the new Top10!
Dwight Yoakam returns to the countdown this week and absolutely dominated the votes over the entire week! “Ain’t That Lonely Yet” lands Yoakam at the top once again. What a fitting gift considering that as I write this, today (Monday) is Dwight’s birthday!
The brand new Country Music Hall Of Fame Inductee, Alan Jackson holds his on, staying strong at #2 with “Tonight I Climb The Wall.” This sometimes forgotten Jackson classic has what it takes to climb to the top, but it’s going to be up to you country music fans to put him there! Also holding the same position as last week is Billy Ray Cyrus and “She’s Not Cryin’ Anymore, taking #3.
Aaron Tippin’s “My Blue Angel” and “Hard Workin’ Man” from Brooks And Dunn swap spots after a week of voting, coming in at #4 and #6 respectively, which are flip flopped from last week’s countdown. Tanya Tucker drops back one spot from #9 to #10 in “It’s A Little Too Late” making it’s final appearance on the poll.
We have a number of songs making their first appearances on the Top 10 with 90’s country classics from Doug Stone, Sammy Kershaw, Diamond Rio and John Michael Montgomery each finding a home on the chart this week.
I never thought that Toby Keith’s “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” would’ve been voted down so quickly, so I can only imagine it will find a spot once again next week. However, with songs being added to the poll from Travis Tritt, Lorrie Morgan, McBride & The Ride, Joe Diffie and Sawyer Brown, it’s going to be one heck of a voting week!
Retired From This Week’s Poll:
- Confederate Railroad – Queen Of Memphis
- Little Texas – I’d Rather Miss You
- Tanya Tucker – It’s A Little Too Late
- Hal Ketchum – Hearts Are Gonna Roll
Added To This Week’s Poll:
- Travis Tritt – T-R-O-U-B-L-E
- Lorrie Morgan – I Guess You Had To Be There
- Joe Diffie – Honky Tonk Attitude
- Sawyer Brown – Trouble On The Line
- McBride & The Ride – Love On The Loose, Heart On The Run
*Readers may vote for 3 different songs, EVERY HOUR, until the poll closes on Sunday night at 6PM ET. Results will be posted shortly after along with a new poll opening at 6AM ET on Monday morning. Songs will generally be retired after 6 weeks or due to a lack of fan interest. If a song remains at #1 for 3 weeks straight, it will be retired as a “CERTIFIED BORN Country” hit!
