HOTDISC Countrey News & Charts
WILL MAKES IT FOUR IN A ROW
Will Banister continues with his vice-like grip at the top of the Hotdisc chart for a fourth week. Will's debut single "Turn Her On To Country" has attracted great interest from the DJs, many of whom are going to be watching with interest to see how he does at Wembley later this month.
Marlee Scott and Vince Gill hold at the runner-up position with David Wood not far behind with the very original song "My Dash" at the number 3 position. Clive John is up to 4 with a rare cover version for the songwriter. "City Of New Orleans" is taken from one of two albums released in tribute to Johnny Cash. Clive fronts the theatrical "Johnny Cash Roadshow" and this is from it. He also hangs on to the number 1 position in the British & Irish Independent Top 10 list.
Wesley Parker has his biggest hit to date with "Montana Sky" (up 1 to 5) while Welshman Bo Walton climbs two notches to land at 6 this week with "Wild At Heart."
The biggest climber in the Top 40 this week is young Liana Conway's song "Callin' You Baby" which shoots from 32 to 21 in one bound. Royal Wade Kimes' "Cold Country" also has a good week, leaping from 16 to 9. Malta's Marty Rivers is also doing well with a three place rise into the top 10 at number 8.
