Editorial Staff

By Garvia Bailey

Do not adjust your compass

The kings of Canadian-made Americana are on the chart with their countrified soul music. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings enter the chart at number 20, with the title track from their new album, South. We dug into the vaults and pulled out this gorgeous bit of storytelling from the band. This is "Stoned," circa 2009.

He truly is the Boss

Bruce Springsteen is making a run up the charts, but he's also making a big play for some laughs. He's a serious musician who isn't afraid to have a little fun. Check out his latest appearance on Jimmy Fallon, as the Boss spoofs the news story known as Bridgegate. Bruuucce (as he's known in Jersey) is on the charts at number three with "High Hopes."
