The Americana Airplay Chart Rundown [November 16]

Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin Lost Time

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.

And we have a new #1 for the first time in months!

    Hmm, looks like I’ll have to check the new #1 out when I get a chance. There’s definitely some stuff here I’d like to check out during the holiday season as well.

      I can tell you that it is a damn fine album. Dave Alvin is one of my favorites, and this is his second collaboration with his brother since they parted ways in The Basters.

      Also check out Number 6 on the list, Josh Ritter’s “Sermon on the Rocks,” a fantastic album, start to finish.
