Billboard Hot 100 Country List on October 17, 2011 (week of Oct 22, 2011)
We take interest in seeing which of our favorites made it into the Hot 100 on Billboard.com, and while we love to make our own lists, we extracted the names of the songs and artists from this week’s listing.
23: “Take a Back Road” Rodney Atkins from his album of the same name
24: “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton from his album Red River Blue
27: “Mr. Know It All” Kelly Clarkson (Okay, again, maybe not country, but we still like her!)
31:“Just a Kiss” from album of the same name, Lady Antebellum
33:“If I Die Young” by the Band Perry from their self titled album is 33. This one has been on the Billboard charts for 46 weeks, topping out at #14.
35: “Crazy Girl” with Eli Young Band from the album Life at Best. It has now been on the charts for 30 weeks.
41: Not country, no, but we liked seeing Daughtry with “Crawling Back to You” from the album Break the Spell (Deluxe Edition) coming in at 41 for its first week out. We thought he should have won American Idol the season he was on it, or at least come in a lot higher to the top that he did! If you are a Daughtry fan, you can listen to some of his audio tracks on his Facebook page, including “Crawling Back to You.”
42: “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” by Jake Owen from the album same name has now been on the Billboard charts for 24 weeks.
43: “Made in America” from Toby Keith from the album from his Clancy’s Tavern, has been on the charts for 18 weeks.

In this week’s adventure along those hallowed country music lanes, we’re gonna Take A Back Road, because God Gave me You, Mr. Know it All!
And Just a Kiss If I Die Young, Crazy Girl, because I’m Crawling Back to You, and we are having a Barefoot Blue Jean Night, which was Made in America on a Long Hot Summer while we were Here for a Good Time and when We Owned the Night.
With our Dirt Road Anthem, it was Easy to make Sparks Fly, but Remind Me of my Baggage Claim, and we’ll put Tattoos on the Town, because we all know that Country must be Country Wide.
We were Just Fishin’ and it was with You and Tequila, but I Don’t Want the Night to end with A Drink in Your Hand.
All Your Life you should Keep Me in Mind, because of One More Drinkin’ Song, and I Got You, so Let it Rain, because Love Don’t Run – Hey! I Got Nothin’!
This week’s listing of country songs on the Billboard Hot 100 again includes 2 songs by The Band Perry, Lady A. and Jason Aldean. Way to go, Guys (and girls)!
