Ad from this week's Billboard Country Update
Right now is very much about waiting to see if Kenny Chesney's "Reality" will move to the #1 spot at all (which is still very much in question), or if Dierks will catch him before that happens to block Kenny from #1. On Mediabase, Dierks is currently 800 points behind Kenny, who is 1000 points behind Keith Urban (currently #1). On Billboard, Dierks is roughly 1 million audience impressions behind Kenny, who is 3 million back from Keith. I tend to think he's got a better shot at Kenny on Billboard first, but it's going to be a close race.
In the meantime, keep requesting the song and above all, thanking your stations for playing the song. It's definitely important they know we aren't tired of hearing this great song!
