Church’s current album, The Outsiders, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums Chart in February 2014 and has since garnered GRAMMY, ACM and CMA top album nominations. The Outsiders features his No. 1 hits “Give Me Back My Hometown” and “Talladega” and is the follow-up to Church’s Platinum-certified Chief, (named the 2012 Album of the Year by both CMA and ACM, and GRAMMY-nominated for Best Country Album) which featured five Top 20 singles: “Homeboy” (certified Platinum for sales in excess of one million singles); the Top 10 “Like Jesus Does” and the Top 5 “Creepin’” (both certified Gold for sales in excess of 500,000 singles each); and two No. 1 hits “Drink in My Hand” (certified Platinum) and “Springsteen” (certified Double Platinum for sales in excess of two million singles). Church’s 2006 debut album, Sinners Like Me (2006) and his sophomore album Carolina (2009) are both RIAA Gold-certified. Carolina had three hit singles: the Top 10 “Hell on the Heart” as well as Top 20 hit “Smoke A Little Smoke” and Top 10 smash “Love Your Love The Most,” which were both certified Gold. Sinners Like Me spawned three Top 20 singles: “How ‘Bout You,” “Two Pink Lines,” and “Guys Like Me.”

JACK BLANCHARD'S COLUMN at Music Charts Magazine®

 

 COWBOYS, WHISKEY, AND COUNTRY MUSIC

Early on, the musicians liked our music,
but some others doubted our “countryness” because we were different.
Thanks to groundbreakers like Roger Miller,
country got more variety.
Now it’s back to “cowboys, whiskey, and country music”.
We don’t fit the cookie cutter, even in indie music.
We won’t be making our music dumber.

We once played a show with Jerry Reed, B.J. Thomas, and other stars
at The Citrus Bowl football stadium.
Misty and I were the only ones that got paid
because we cornered the money man.
After the show T.G.Sheppard asked us where the money person was.
We felt bad because we had a suspicion,
and T.G. is a nice guy.

A man in Tampa once booked us for a show.
We were the stars, and the only act on the show.
He rented a huge football stadium for the event,
and did no advertising.
About twenty people came. I think they were his family.
He blamed us, and refused to pay us.
And yet we stay in the music business.
It’s a form of insanity.

In the years we booked through The Buddy Lee Agency
we never got stiffed for our money.
The contracts called for 50% to be returned with the signed contract,
and the rest to be paid in cash before we go on stage.
Good business.

“How many people can you draw?” That’s what the show bookers ask.
I’ve seen major acts play to a dead house
because the buyers didn’t advertise properly.
I’ve also seen lesser known artists pack venues
because of good promotion by the buyers.
Elvis would bomb if nobody knew he was there.

Misty and I are going to break into show biz any day now.
As soon as old singers become the “in thing”.
I always wanted to be a starlet.

Sometimes I think there are less than 20 radio stations
that even know we’re still putting out records.

Sorry for all the negative comments about the music business.
There is also a down side.
Maybe we should have opened a carpet remnants store.
We either love it or we’re hooked on it.

WHY I GOT INTO SHOW BUSINESS…
It’s the kind of public humiliation I’ve always wanted.

I plan to visit visit Australia
when they find a nicer name for “penal colony”.

The Hotdisc chart is compiled from DJs and industry professionals’ ratings of songs currently being promoted on the Rush Released CD. They are not airplay charts, as airplay charts cannot work in Europe because there are no terrestrial country stations. The hundreds of country programmes on air which we service are likely to play a particular song only twice at most in a three month period, therefore rendering airplay charts insignificant in Europe. It works well in America where there are plenty of non-stop country stations but it does not work here. Any Airplay Chart you may see claiming to provide this service is bogus and Hotdisc does not condone these charts at all. They are misleading at best for the reasons stated.

The Hotdisc charts are put together weekly using ratings supplied by DJs who give scores to every song on the last three months’ editions of Rush Released. The scores are averaged out per week to give an accurate guide to the songs which are being championed by the industry. The aim is to showcase the songs which the industry professionals are flagging up as quality songs. This is a very useful exercise as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and done solely on merit!
