  1. I’m very excited to have something to watch on Mediabase. Matt’s song with Jim Brickman is already in the AC Top 40 with just 5 days on the radio!!!

    56 37 JIM BRICKMAN Thank You 47 18 29 19 2.5 0.9 +1.5

    If I’m reading it correctly, 19 stations are playing the song now. Apparently, Jim’s name/song and Matt’s voice have proven to be a winning combination.

    That is great. Congrats to Matt for getting on AC Top 40 countdown. :) I am glad to see him getting more airplay.

    That is correct.

    Go Matt!

  4. Danny’s daily update from mediabase:

    40 37 DANNY GOKEY I Will Not Say Goodbye 644 609 35 2.95

    And his video for IWNSGB is #8 on the GAC Top 20 Countdown this week and #3 on CMT Pure’s Countdown.

    Only one spin behind #31 which has a much smaller bullet, so if he can make up that ground could be top 30 in hac for the published chart due to one song going recurrent I believe.

    Also new Itunes peak at #31!!!

    Apparently, according to Twitter, IIHY debuted on Rick Dees Top 40 at #31 today. Highest debut on the countdown.

  8. VH1 Top 20 Music Video Countdown

    #7 IIH – Adam Lambert
    #10 Sept – Daughtry

    The Plain White T’s got the Top 20 Premiere slot this week. It is one of the three new videos to be added to the rotation Monday along with KE$HA – Take It Off & Kris Allen – The Truth

    ETA: Strange that both Plain White T’s & KE$HA are up for voting but Kris is not. It may just be a matter of his video not being officially released.
    Katy Perry & Train (two versions same song) both have two videos up for voting. I thought they didn’t allow two videos from the same artist on the countdown. Katy Perry had two this week.

  9. The Plain White T’s got the Top 20 Premiere slot this week. It is one of the three new videos to be added to the rotation Monday along with KE$HA – Take It Off & Kris Allen – The Truth

  10. Congrats to Matt G for being in the Top 40 on AC chart!

    Nice debut for Danny’s video on that countdown show.

  11. tripp_ncwy

    I’m thinking the video for TT can’t be added on the voting panel until it is officially released. The other two videos you mentioned have already been released. Let’s see if they update the voting panel once Kris’s video is officially out

    Lady A should pass TT today — only 8 spins behind. But nothing else behind it is close in spin count and a couple of songs should go recurrent, so TT may actually move up 1 spot on this week’s published chart.

  13. girlygirl, that’s what I thought but to have Katy Perry with two videos and Train having two spots for different versions of the same song seems kinda much. It denies others from getting some votes and possibly making the countdown.

  14. The Plain White T’s got the Top 20 Premiere slot this week. It is one of the three new videos to be added to the rotation Monday along with KE$HA – Take It Off & Kris Allen – The Truth

    I’ve been looking around vh1.com. How do you know that Kris Allen, The Truth is being added there. Also, how do videos get added there. David A’s video for Something bout love isn’t on there–why? Any insight?

  15. Suzanne

    I don’t know this for sure but I think the label has to submit the video to VH1 or MTV or Fuse or whoever. What gets added is then up to the programmers at the channel.

  18. has archis video been added to vh1 yet? if not, when will it be?

    no it hasnt. thats something the label will decide to do or what ever. Its not an HAC song so its not gonna show up there yet unless they decide to give it an HAC adds date and it gets played there.

  19. iTunes

    I know it’s WAY too early to worry about it, but right now Archie’s song is going the wrong way on this chart. Hopefully more radio play and releasing the video to something other than just Vevo will turn the momentum around

  20. Frogcooke

    Thanks! Changed it — I was probably looking at the wrong number

  21. I’m probably way off but I’ve always been under the impression that the video of any artist needs to have at least 30,000 views on VH1’s website before being eligible to be voted on for the top 20 countdown. that’s what i heard, at least.

  22. RE: TT video being added for voting to VH1 countdown.

    I have noticed that it takes at least a full week for new video’s to be added. So TT most likely wont be up for voting until the following week.

  23. I hope Archie gets some good adds next week for his song. Its a genuinely good song. I heard it on the radio when i was in Pennsylvania and it sounded great (I also heard Kris’ Before We Come Undone on the radio, and was shocked to hear it since it’s not his single, but it sounded A-MAZING). It seems like Jive isnt really pushing the song though, although I saw it being advertised on every single Vevo video I went on for about a week, including Adam’s, Soundgarden’s and Owl City’s hahaha I expected it to do better on Itunes because it got so many views on youtube.

    So many artists havent even been given much of a chance on pop radio these days, including established artists like Christina Aguilera and Natasha Bedingfield. All of these newer artists are making it sooo difficult for people like Archie to get radio spins, especially since he hasnt had any radio presence for 2 years. Who knows what radio wants these days? It’s almost as though you have to be crazy to get anyone’s attention, which is not a bad thing (i quite enjoy crazy lol) but yeah I hope Archie’s radio spins start picking up. He deserves it! I don’t want the second album slump for Idol artists to get him. He’s so talented!

  24. For completeness, CMT Top 20

    Carrie #1
    Kellie #15
    Danny – not yet (*)

    * he needs to move up a lot more on the charts to be a contender for this one, it’s not fan-voted.

  25. Milly21:

    What station in PA were you listening to that played BWCU? Or at least, what city were you in? That’s pretty strange, but intriguing, especially for fans of BWCU as the next single!

  26. I thought they didn’t allow two videos from the same artist on the countdown. Katy Perry had two this week.

    I could be wrong and usually am, but didn’t Adam have two WWFM videos on the countdown at one point? Also wasn’t IIHY added to the countdown the day the video was released, that’s why it debuted at #20 because it didn’t have a full week of voting?

  27. Its not an HAC song so its not gonna show up there yet unless they decide to give it an HAC adds date and it gets played there.

    Adam’s iihy did not go for hac adds until almost 2 months after the video was released to vh1. so i doubt the hac thing is the reason for any holdup with vh1…i would expect it to go to vh1 and for vh1 to play it and for it to do well on the countdown. i’m just surprised it hasn’t already started on vh1.

    but didn’t Adam have two WWFM videos on the countdown at one point?

    he had 2 wwfm videos — the “real” one and the unplugged one. But the only used one on the countdown on any given week even tho you could vote for both….once the umplugged one was out, vh1 used that one for weeks, in order to promote their unplugged series

  28. Eileen99: Hey! I’m pretty sure we were in Hershey Pennsylvania when they gave Before We Come Undone. I almost choked on my food when I heard it (we were at a Wendy’s haha). I was thrilled. It sounded sooo good. Very catchy stuff. The guys next to me really seemed to enjoy it. They arent idol fans and dont really know who Kris is. They were impressed when I told them who it was tho. I’m not sure what station it was. I sooo wish it were the new single. Radio likes more upbeat music these days, and I always thought the Truth was a little too slow for radio.

    Pennsylvania really seems to like the Idols. While I was there I heard If I Had You, Something Bout Love and Before We Come Undone. Needless to say, I was very happy haha

  29. What is the name of Matt’s single that charted? Sorry, I haven’t kept up, but would like to take a listen. I really do like him.

  30. revcat, believe it is called “Thank You” ? mj put up a post about it here, but you’d have to go back some days to find it.

    Quite a few others from AI8 tweeted in support of Matt., Danny probably most recently.

    dannygokey: New single “Thank You” by @JimBrickman feat. @ImMattGiraud just hit radio a few days ago Call ur local radio station & request-Congrats Matt

  31. revcat, the best place to listen to Matt’s song with Jim Brickman is on his myspace page, http://www.myspace.com/matthewscottgiraud
    It is called “Thank You” and is at the bottom of his list of songs. The one MJ posted was probably a demo from Mediabase and had a different arrangement. Also you can go to http://www.jimbrickman.com, where it is streaming, but I would rather see you boost the number of plays on Matt’s myspace page. :-)

  32. Top 40 Country Countdown shows played on quite a lot of stations this weekend. Not sure how many – anyone?

    American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks
    TW/LW
    3/1 Undo It
    31/30 Makin Me Fall In love Again
    40/39 I Will Not Say Goodbey

    Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40
    TW/LW
    5/3 Undo It
    31/31 Makin Me Fall In Love Again
    39/40 I Will Not Say Goodbye

  33. Lucy1234, that is soooo confusing that the two top 40 country shows can’t synch up to the same baseline of chart rankings :?

    Kellie seems to be slipping a bit, unfortunately. Maybe she can recover but she’s lost her bullet in recent days.

  34. Oh, wow Matt has a great My Space page… have to turn in now but will listen tomorrow and probably buy as I really would like to see Matt’s career take off.

  35. Milly21:

    Since you heard it at Wendy’s, maybe it was not a radio station, but Muzak.
    I heard some people in clothing store (and I personally heard this) heard Red Guitar the most.
    In grocery store, the song rotation are different.

    Just guessing, but if it was a real radio station, then it is really cool.

  36. Mu·zak  (myzk)
    A trademark used for recorded background music transmitted by wire or radio, as to places of business, on a subscription basis.

    Just guessing, but if it was a real radio station, then it is really cool.

    When I was in PA this Spring, I heard various songs from Kris’ album at stores, malls, restaurants, bars, and even gas stations. I was visiting in Schuylkill County and Philly. I also heard ‘Live Like We’re Dying’ on the radio a few times. I seem to recall the ‘station’ at the one very popular restaurant/bar identified itself as Pulse Satellite Radio.

  39. Grats to all and especialy Matt Giraud. I wish his name was being listed for that song on these lists.

    It’s bugging me that ‘The Truth’ is listed but we can’t even watch it yet. I am so excited and anxious to see the MV.

  40. TwigLA- Pulse is the HAC station on Sirius XM. Channel 26. Alot of business carry Sirius or whatever their cable providers music station is. If there are no commercials at all it is probably cable.

  42. Today’s update for “Thank You” by Jim Brickman f/ Matt Giraud (TY), still moving up the AC chart, now at 35.

    59 35 JIM BRICKMAN Thank You 54 17 37 19 2.8 0.9 +1.9

    I agree TwigLA that I wish Matt’s name were on the Mediabase entry, but I have heard the DJs are announcing it when they introduce the song, with “from American Idol” slapped onto the end. I hope that will continue once the song is no longer new.

  43. So pleased with the progress of IIHY! Great update and AI increase! To think people thought this song was going to flop at one point. It looks like it could go Top 20 now. And great news about Australia.

  44. Would it be possible to post a “cheat sheet” for all those numbers? I have no idea what anything means. I know that Kristen told me a while ago but I forgot….

  47. IIHY should be at #23 on tomorrows published chart because Bulletproof goes recurrent. It will pass Shontelle and Kesha this week no problem to bring it to #21. And there is a slight possibility if she continues with negative updates, that it could pass Nicki Minaj to bring it to #20.

  52. YankeeFan08

    They can, especially far down the chart, where the sales numbers are really bunched together

    CindyM

    Thanks! Wow, I must have still been asleep to skip over my fave little song that could (LLWD)

  53. Girlygirl, yes I see now that the numbers change quickly. For instance, Kris’ album is not on the list at all now but Danny’s album has jumped almost 200 spots.

  54. Wonder how many albums it takes to move like that at the lower range of the chart. Would some dozens of people coming home from Danny’s concert and downloading off iTunes be enough to do it?

    Maybe, I suppose, if he’s selling somewhere between 1000-2000 CDs/week lately, so not more than 300 per day on average, of which only some would be on iTunes vs. through traditional stores, amazon, or on-site concert sales.

    I think that digital sales represent about 15% of album sales, so if, for the sake of easy calculations, the weekly itunes sales were 14% of 1000 units a week, the daily sales would be about 20 units. So I suppose that a few people buying after a concert could make a difference to the itunes chart position.

  56. Danny’s and Kris’s albums have been jumping on and falling off the iTunes charts pretty much every day for weeks now.

  57. Looks like TT will be #18 on teh published Hot AC chart.

    Meanwhile, I don’t know what this means, if anything, but HitPredictor tweeted this:

    #@bushy0tailed Very positive! Potential to break top 10 on the Top 40 and top 5 in Hot AC :)

    in response to this question…

    Hopefully it’ll go to top20 by next week.

  59. That is nice movement for Matt on the AC chart.

    Also Danny ends up being #36 for the week on the published country chart. It moved up one from last week’s position of #37. This is the highest Danny’s song has been ranked on the chart so far.

  61. This has been a great week for the four top boys of S8! I cannot tell you all how excited I am to see Matt’s name on a chart in this thread, even with a featuring beside it.

  62. Yes, Undo It went recurrent on mediabase today. Kellie and Danny should thank Carrie for the little bump up, lol. Though it’s likely to be short-lived as Zac Brown Band is the latest of a bunch of hot acts to come rolling through with new songs (Sugarland, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift — all in just in the past 2-3 weeks).

    Danny has done well to maintain and even make a little progress, and although Kellie’s song has been dropping just a bit, she’s still held pretty close to the top 30 line.

  63. Yes, Undo It went recurrent on mediabase today

    A few weeks ago, Kirsten put out how long it took for songs to go recurrent on the various charts, and yeah, it was pretty harsh on country. Like 5 weeks of going down and out! or something like that. Don’t remember the particulars, just remember it being pretty short/fast. Much more than on other charts.

  64. yeah, it was pretty harsh on country. Like 5 weeks of going down and out! or something like that

    More like 2-3 weeks. Carrie was #1 with Undo It just a couple of weeks ago, then was at #5 when last week’s chart closed out and around #9 or #10 today.
