Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw and Eric Church all make strong debuts on the Top 40 Country Songs list for August, but none of their singles were good enough to take down a song that ranked No. 2 on the July 2012 list. Aldean comes closest, with ‘Take a Little Ride’ making a Top 5 debut this month.

Our Top 40 Country Songs list is full of country newcomers, with Lauren Alaina‘s new single ‘Eighteen Inches’ debuting at No. 39 following multiple wins on the Taste of Country Showdown. Brantley Gilbert also cracks the Top 40 with his new song ‘Kick It In t the Sticks,’ and Luke Bryan‘s new single lands at No. 35. Also look for hits from Blake Shelton, Chris Young, Jana Kramer and Love and Theft amongst the hottest songs in country music.
