BARRY KIRWAN RETAINS TOP SPOT

Barry Kirwan's cover of the Paul Overstreet tongue-in-cheek single "I Think She Only Loves Me For My Willie" holds at Number 1 in both the Hotdisc Top 40 and the British & Irish Top 10. The song pays tribute to Willie Nelson by name-checking many of his hits and it has found favour with an immense amount of European DJs who have scored it so high through ratings and airplay that it comfortably claims the top spot this week again.

Melanie Meriney continues to climb and is now at 2 with "Lifeboat" while Amy Westney and Reagan Johnson are at 3 and 4. Heidi Raye makes the top 10 in only the second week on the chart with her follow-up single, "Junkyard."

The Hotdisc Top 20 TV Programme is on Sky TV Channel 389 where people can watch the programmes every Sunday afternoon at 2pm, Thursdays at 4pm and on Saturday mornings at 1am.  This means the show hits different audiences, as well as being available to record on Sky Set-Top Boxes and of course being available online in HD. The programme is also on FreeSat Channel 516 and FreeView Channel 87. It's all part of the 24 hour country music channel, "Keep It Country."

Watch the latest edition of the Hotdisc Top 20 here, as well as the archived previous editions.

Our two radio chart programmes are on air. The live transmission times for these shows are as follows:

Sundays at 12 Noon - CMR Nashville Radio - Hotdisc Top 40 Show
Mondays at 8pm -
UKCountryRadio.com - Hotdisc British & Irish Top 10 Show.  To watch the latest Top 20 TV show click here.

The Hotdisc charts are 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 as there are no terrestrial country stations in this area. The hundreds of country shows 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 cannot work here.

The Hotdisc charts are therefore 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 totalled up and 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 DJs and media people are pinpointing as top quality songs, which is a very useful exercise, particularly to all our clients and DJs as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and done on merit!
