Updated, Toby Keith Tops Billboard's Hot 200!

Updated: Feb 19


Toby Keith Tops The Charts



Toby Keith just stopped Morgan Wallen from eclipsing Garth Brook's record for most weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart. Garth has held the record for nearly 33 years!  One Thing at a Time, Morgan Wallen’s most recent album is tied, and was projected to top Billboard's All Genre chart this week, but was narrowly stopped by the Big Dawg. Wow, what a way to say goodbye. This is Toby's fifth album to top Billboard's all genre chart!


Morgan may still set a new record in the coming weeks, but one thing is for certain, it won't be this week.. Great things take time, and are worth the wait. Morgan was also able to wisely turn a not-so-great situation into another win by recutting Spin You Around, which just debuted at number one on Billboard’s Country Digital chart. 




Morgan’s incredibly enduring pop chart topper Last Night was also nominated for a 2024 Grammy this year. Overall, this past week has been great for Grammy nominees as Luke Combs latest album Getting Old received a 22% increase in radio spins after the show. His emotional performance with Tracy Chapman was the highlight of the Grammys this year. Some of the other grammy nominees, and winners experienced a spike in plays like Taylor, SZA, and Miley.


Toby Keith’s 35 Biggest Hits album surged after he passed away on February 5th. I'm still speechless, and shocked. It just seems so unbelievable as there were reports that he was doing better. What a tremendous loss to country music.





 Morgan also earned the Pollstar Country Tour of the Year award, which is given to the top grossing tour in each major music category. Taylor won for Best Major Tour, Post Malone won for Hip Hop, Jelly Roll for Best New Touring Artist and the Mother Church, The Ryman Auditorium won for Best Theater.


The 2024 Grammys also honored Tammy Wynette with a much deserved Lifetime Achievement award. Stand By Your Man was a breakthrough single, as she was the first female artist to sell over 5 Million copies. She was also the first female country singer to sell over 1 million albums. Recently, Georgette, Tammy & George's daughter confided that her momma told her George was the love of her life..💔





A little pop culture for you all? Do you know what the number one game show in the world is? Jeopardy of course! The show's success can be attributed to its clever twist on the traditional quiz show format. Instead of providing contestants with answers, Jeopardy presents them with clues in various categories, requiring them to respond in the form of a question.


One such clue recently stumped everyone, and it had to do with The Man In Black, Johnny Cash. The Jeopardy contestants vying for the highly wished for spot in the Tournament of Champions dreams came to a screeching halt when they were not able to correctly guess I Walk The Line when provided with this clue:


"‘It was kind of a prodding to myself to play it straight,’ said Johnny Cash of this 1956 hit," 

What is really sad is that they responded with Walk The Line, when the actual title is I Walk The Line. So close, that has to hurt. Thanks for all the early support on our new Rewind podcast! A new installment is slated for February 16th, 2024, and my daily personal development podcast "Do This First". You guys rock!
