MSR – Artists Of The Year 2018
So today I will be doing my first ever Artists of the year special since CMT (Country Music Television) did their all woman edition. And I don’t have a problem with it. But some artists also had good years deserve to get some credit as well. And as I said It’s my first time doing this. So let’s see which 7 I pick this year.
Carrie Underwood – Artist of a lifetime award.
I am giving this award to her based on her 2 number one videos and they also spent the most total times at number one for the year. "The champion" (7 times featuring Ludacris), & “Cry pretty” (15 times) and she also released her new album this year as well. So now to the next artist that we honor.
Scotty McCreery – “Five more minutes” (2 times total at number one this year and not even counting last year as well), & “This is it” (9 times so far on top of charts this year).
Thomas Rhett – Well he did have the number one for the year for a long while with “Marry me” (9 times) and also getting “Life changes” (1 time so far) to the top.
Blake Shelton – The numbers don’t lie with the hits like “I lived it” (8 times at the top of the charts), and “I’ll name the dogs” (5 times to the top). And he was so close to adding more times to the top with “I lived it” getting number 2 on my list (Midnight Star Report) 4 times in a row.
Luke Bryan – 3 different songs to the top totaling 10 times. "Light it up" (6 times), "Most people are good" (3 times), & Sunrise, sunburn, sunset (1 times to the top so far).
Jason Aldean – Having two songs going to the top but only totaling 6 times. "You make it easy" (3 times total), & “Drowns the whiskey” (3 times total), but the song helped Miranda Lambert reach the top for the first time in like two years.
Brett Young – With 2 different songs to the top this year. "Mercy" (2 times), & “Like I loved you” (4 times total). And he did get his first number one and second number one on my list this year. I think he is very deserving of this honor.
This is for some big shockers on the year 2018.
Darius Rucker – “For the first time” (topped the charts 4 times total).
Chris Janson – Having 2 different songs on the list “Fix a drink”, & “Drunk girl” both topping the list 3 times total.
LANco – Starting our year with “Greatest love story” (2 times total).
Chris Young – Having 2 songs top the list a total of 4 times “Losing sleep”, & “Hangin’ on” so far.
Kane Brown – Having 2 songs top the list a total of 8 times “Heaven” (3 times), & “Lose it” (5 times topping the list so far).
Florida Georgia Line – FGL have 2 songs top the charts so far “Meant to be, which features Bebe Rexha”, & “Up down which features Morgan Wallen”. Simple is making it’s way up the charts as we speak now.
Old Dominion – “Written in the sand” has gone to the top & “Hotel key” will probably top the charts next week.
Thanks for taking the time to read this special report celebrating Artists of the year based on the MSR (Midnight Star Report), which is my list which combines both GAC (Great American Country), & CMT (Country Music Television) which do their weekly country music video countdowns. See ya all next time.
