Up 2.3 million audience impressions, traditional stylist Joe Nichols gets his third No. 1, and first in more than four years, as "Gimmie That Girl" (Show Dog-Universal) advances 3-1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs. With 33.9 million impressions during the Nielsen BDS tracking week, "Girl" is Nichols' first leader since "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" topped the Dec. 17, 2005, chart. He logged his first No. 1 when "Brokenheartsville" dominated the March 29, 2003, list. Nichols' chart history includes five other top 10s, including a pair of top five peaks. His is the longest stretch between No. 1s since Reba McEntire ended a dry spell of roughly five-and-a-half years when "Consider Me Gone" reached No. 1 on the Jan. 2 chart.

Weekly audience leaders for "Girl" are KPLX Dallas (913,000 impressions), WYCD Detroit (767,000), WKKT Charlotte, N.C. (641,000), KNIX Phoenix (602,000) and KKGO Los Angeles (599,000). Up 222,000 impressions, the biggest audience gain is noted at KCYY San Antonio, while KATM Modesto, Calif., turns in the biggest spike in plays (66 total spins, up 25). Up 102 plays, "Girl" steps 2-1 on our national formats/secondary markets chart, marking Nichols' first leader on that list since Billboard began archiving the weekly Country Indicator charts in late 2006.

Concurrently, Miranda Lambert scores the week's biggest audience surge, as "The House That Built Me" (Columbia) improves 3.0 million impressions and cracks the top 10 with a 13-9 leap. The new song is Lambert's third top 10 and completes her first set of two straight-she peaked at No. 2 with "White Liar" in February. Lambert first reached the upper tier on Hot Country Songs when "Gunpowder & Lead" stopped at No. 7 in August 2008.

Nielsen SoundScan reports that Lambert's new track also registers the biggest gain in units on Billboard's Country Digital Songs, where "House" gains 8,000 copies (30,000 total downloads, up 37%) and rises 8-5. Elsewhere on the digital chart, Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" (Capitol Nashville) registers a 14th
week at No. 1 but dips below 100,000 units for the first time in approximately three months (92,000 copies, down 8%). The track has maintained sales of at least 100,000 since its third week on the list (the Feb. 13 chart). The song's best showing so far was 212,000 units on the Feb. 20 chart.

The biggest percentage increase is a 56% spike for Laura Bell Bundy's "Giddy On Up" (Mercury), which moves 11,000 copies and shoots 39-23. Reba McEntire's "I Keep On Lovin' You" (Starstruck/Valory) opens with 7,000 downloads at No. 45, ahead of Toby Keith's No. 47 re-entry with "Cryin' for Me (Wayman's Song)" (Show Dog-Universal), which moves 6,000 downloads. With roughly 6,000 units apiece, Brad Paisley's "Water" (Arista Nashville) and Emily West Featuring Keith Urban's "Blue Sky" (Capitol Nashvlle) start at Nos. 48 and 50, respectively. New weekly rankings reflecting the sales spikes from the April 18 Academy of Country Music Awards will appear April 29 at billboard.biz/charts.

Easton Corbin and Dierks Bentley split Most Added honors this week, as Corbin's "Roll With it" (Mercury) claims 19 reports from Hot Country Songs panelists, and Bentley's "Up on the Ridge" (Capitol Nashville) draws 20 commitments from Country Indicator reporters. With spins detected at 24 stations monitored for the chart, Corbin's track rises 58-52 in its second week on Hot Country Songs, while Bentley's song flies 47-37 with the third-largest gain (up 305 plays) on Country Indicator.
