Congratulations to Kenny Chesney, who tops the charts for a second consecutive week with his smash single, “Somewhere with You.” Beyond the distinct melody, Kenny says that the song’s great lyrics were part of what sold him on recording “Somewhere with You.” “I love the line of this song where ‘I can’t go out every night of the week, I can’t go home with anybody I meet, and it’s just a temporary high, ’cause when I close my eyes, I’m somewhere with you.’ I think that anybody that has been in a relationship that associates certain places or certain things or certain music, food, whatever, you go back to that person.” Somewhere With You is the second #1 song from from Kenny’s Hemingway’s Whiskey album, also home to the number-one hit, “The Boys of Fall.”
Martina McBride is now 3 and 0 as a lucky charm for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Martina was invited to perform the National Anthem prior to the AFC Championship game between the Steelers and Jets. Martina has now sung at Heinz Field before a Steelers game three times now. And, all three times the Steelers have won that game. If you missed Sunday night's National Anthem by Martina, here is the video:
Chris Young is a grateful man. Chris is in a position where his song, “Voices,” has a shot at tying a 25-year-old chart record! Here’s the story: “Voices” was the first single from Chris’ most recent album, and when ”Voices” was first on the radio, it just squeaked into the Top 40. Well, after Chris had back-to-back number-one singles with “Gettin’ You Home” and “The Man I Want to Be,” fans and others still believed in “Voices” so much that Chris and his record company released it as a single a second time! Now that “Voices” is a huge hit and climbing the charts, Chris could match the record set by Randy Travis, whose classic ”On the Other Hand” marked the only time that a re-release of the same recording of the same song ever made it to number-one on the Billboard country chart.

Joe Nichols released a video Monday for his new single, The Shape I'm In. The song comes off his "Greatest Hits" package coming out on Tuesday. When considering the direction for “The Shape I’m In” music video, Show Dog-Universal artist Joe Nichols decided he wanted to take it in a different direction than what might have been expected. “I have had an opportunity to perform for our troops stationed in the Middle East multiple times, and got just a small glimpse of what they deal with everyday,” Nichols explained. “I have also been working with Marcus Luttrell’s Boot Campaign and been inspired by his story." The music video features special appearances by Luttrell as well as Captain Chad Fleming (retired) and Captain Ivan Castro, who have overcome battle injuries to do amazing things. Watch the result in the video below:
Joe Nichols will put 10 songs as his "Greatest Hits" package being released today, January 25. Hits will include Nichols' current Top 20 and climbing single The Shape I'm In and his recent 3-week number 1 Gimmie That Girl. Nichols will close a busy and successful 2010 with the second most played song of the year - Gimmie That Girl.
