FTM Praise: The Kiss of Commercial Death

With Jon Pardi's "What I Can't Put Down" struggling to find footing on the charts, I came to this realization. You can pretty much guarantee that if Farce the Music really likes a mainstream country single, the song will not have a whiff of the top 10 on the country charts. Don't believe me? Here are some commercial country singles we enjoyed, and their peaks on the US Country Chart.

Chris Young "Neon" - 23 (2012)

Sunny Sweeney "Staying's Worse Than Leaving" - 38 (2011)

Chris Stapleton "What Are You Listening To" - 46 (2013)

Charlie Worsham "Want Me Too" - 46 (2014)

Lee Ann Womack "Solitary Thinkin'" - 39 (2009)

Alan Jackson  "So You Don't Have to Love Me Anymore" - 25 (2012)

Kacey Musgraves "Blowin' Smoke" - 31 (2013)

Gary Allan "It Ain't the Whiskey" - 40 (2013)

Julie Roberts "Wake Up Older" - 46 (2005)

Brandy Clark "Stripes" - (did not chart) (2013)

Dierks Bentley "Draw Me a Map" - 33 (2010)

Little Big Town "Your Side of the Bed" - 29 (2013)

David Nail "Sound of a Million Dreams" - 38 (2012)

Ronnie Dunn "Cost of Livin'" - 19 (2011)

Jamey Johnson (All singles 2009-2012) - 34, 52, 39, 51, DNC

Emily West "Blue Sky" - 38 (2010)

George Strait "Drinkin' Man" - 37 (2012)

Kellie Pickler "Someone Somewhere Tonight" - (did not chart) (2013)


  1. Just proof that good taste isn't welcome on mainstream country radio.

  2. Wow! You even killed a Dirks Bentley single? Impressive.

  3. Did Kacey's Keep it to Yourself ever chart?

  4. "Keep it to Yourself" is at 40 right now. 38 on Billboard. Still got some life in it, but it's getting the usual treatment for anything with a brain.

  5. You realize what this means?

    It is your solemn duty to take one for the team - and start learning to love Big Brother, I mean everything coming out of Nashville.

    Please, immediately! ;)

  6. If it would work, I'd do it in a heartbeat. -Trailer
