(Nashville, TN Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Jan. 4, 2010) Nashville-based dance venue marketing company, Marco Club Connection, has compiled and released its sixth annual Top Ten list of 2009Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s most requested Country dance club songs.
A panel of more than 230 club owners, DJs and dance instructors from across the country were surveyed in December by Club Connection to compile this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rankings.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“What strikes me about this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s list is the diversity of the artists that are releasing either dance remixes or songs that are already tailor made for the clubs,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Club Connection Venue Marketing Specialist Bobbe Morhiser. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have new artists like Zac Brown Band, Randy Houser and Gloriana all placing in the top five, superstars like Carrie Underwood, and then we have veteran trendsetters like Reba and Brooks & Dunn still making relevant, danceable material for the younger crowd. It really goes to show how important the dance venues can be in reaching an audience.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The results of the 2009 Top Ten Country Dance Club Hits are:
1. The Zac Brown Band – Ã¢â‚¬Å“ToesÃ¢â‚¬Â
2. Randy Houser – Ã¢â‚¬Å“Boots OnÃ¢â‚¬Â
3. Jason Aldean – Ã¢â‚¬Å“She’s CountryÃ¢â‚¬Â
4. Carrie Underwood – Ã¢â‚¬Å“Cowboy CasanovaÃ¢â‚¬Â
5. Gloriana – Ã¢â‚¬Å“Wild At HeartÃ¢â‚¬Â
6. Brooks & Dunn – Ã¢â‚¬Å“Honky Tonk StompÃ¢â‚¬Â
7. Billy Currington – Ã¢â‚¬Å“People Are CrazyÃ¢â‚¬Â
8. Reba – Ã¢â‚¬Å“I Want a CowboyÃ¢â‚¬Â
9. Joey + Rory – Ã¢â‚¬Å“Cheater CheaterÃ¢â‚¬Â
10. Jack Ingram – Ã¢â‚¬Å“Barefoot & CrazyÃ¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Out of all the songs on Club ConnectionÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Top Ten List, we play just about every single one of them on a daily basis,Ã¢â‚¬Â says DJ Sully, a DJ at Cadillac Ranch in Southington, Conn. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Many of our dancers strongly push what they like, and I make sure they get what they want. These songs definitely keep our customers coming back week after week.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Songs to top the list in previous years include Alan JacksonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“Good TimeÃ¢â‚¬Â (2008), Josh TurnerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“FirecrackerÃ¢â‚¬Â (2007), Steve HolyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“Brand New GirlfriendÃ¢â‚¬Â (2006), Trace AdkinsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Ã¢â‚¬Å“Honkytonk BadonkadonkÃ¢â‚¬Â (2005) and Big & RichÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“Save a Horse (Ride A Cowboy)Ã¢â‚¬Â (2004).
