Little Big Town and Eric Church topped the list of dance club hits in 2012, according to the Marco Club Connection’s 9th annual ranking of Country dance favorites.
Every December, the Nashville-based company surveys a panel of nearly 250 club owners, DJs and dance instructors from across the country to compile its rankings. Overall votes by the panel determine each song’s placement on the list.
Bobbe Morhiser, Manager of Venue Marketing, states “This year’s top ten contains a number of young, fresh talent. I’m proud to see new music impacting the club and dance community so quickly. We also saw a few ballads in the top ten, which is a switch from the surge of remixes seen in previous years. Proving that a great song will thrive in a high energy dance setting just as well as a dance remix.”
The Top 10 listing for 2012 is as follows:
Little Big Town – “Pontoon”
Eric Church – “Springsteen”
Kip Moore – “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck”
Luke Bryan – “Drunk On You”
Easton Corbin – “Lovin’ You Is Fun”
Dustin Lynch – “Cowboys And Angels”
Parmalee – “Musta Had A Good Time”
Toby Keith – “Beers Ago”
Florida Georgia Line – “Cruise”
Carrie Underwood – “Blown Away”
Morhiser added, “There was a positive trend in this year’s voting. New artists Rachele Lynae, The Lacs, and Levi Riggs were all well represented in the voting, illustrating openness among the dance community to new and compelling music, whether it be from a major label, or an independent.”
