The Americana Airplay Chart Rundown [September 28]

Jason Isbell Something More Than Free

This is The Americana Airplay Chart Rundown. Every week I’ll post the top 40 from the Americana Airplay chart, which is obtained from AmericanaRadio.org. From the site: “The Americana Airplay chart represents the reported play of terrestrial radio stations, nationally syndicated radio shows, satellite radio and internet stations who have agreed to submit weekly spin counts. For more information please visit www.americanamusic.org.”

The goal of this feature is to track and monitor the current most popular music in the Americana realm, as I believe it’s starting to take on a bigger importance in the world of music, especially concerning the current state of country music. In addition it will bring some new names to the site that haven’t been covered here before and could lead to more Americana coverage. It’s also a place to discuss anything going on in the Americana genre at this moment. Be sure to weigh in on the chart in the comments below.

One thought on “The Americana Airplay Chart Rundown [September 28]

    Looks like “Pageant Material” may not hit #1 after all. It’s been decreasing in spins for several weeks now. 😦 But I guess that comes with the territory when you have a chart where albums/songs actually go to their natural peaks instead of having a revolving door of one-week #1’s.
