(2/5/17) Songwriter fortunes move slowly. Legends of writing, pitching, cutting and releasing a single all in a two or three week period—well, they are pretty rare (or perhaps non-existent). And so it makes perfect sense that our Top 10 list would often reflect a shuffling of the deck. For example, compare the Year-End Top 10 list (HERE) with our new chart and you’ll find only four writers appear on both. New faces in this week’s Top 10 and not on the Year End list include; Taylor Swift, Jesse Frasure, Thomas Rhett, Hillary Lindsey, Jimmy Robbins and Bryan Simpson.
Taylor Swift (No. 2) is not going to be able to topple mega-hitster Ashley Gorley (No. 1). Although as a single writer, Swift gets all the points from her one chart topping country single, Gorley has seven songs contributing to his lead.
