It's out with the old and in with the new this week at blues radio...

Gregg Allman's Low Country Blues has tightened its grip on the #1 ranking in the world of blues radio, topping both the Roots Music Report and BluesMobile chart. It's an impressive feat and the album deserves the attention.

Other 2011 releases have started to creep their way, pushing aside some of the big albums from last year. Damon Fowler's Devil Got His Way and Roomful of Blues' Hook, Line & Sinker were both released this year and both are in RMR's Top 5 and the Top 15 for BluesMobile. Big Shanty's 2-disc Collection was just released this week and it makes its debut on BluesMobile's Top 15.

JJ Grey & Mofro's Georgia Warhorse did real nice numbers last year but had falled off until this week where it storms both charts. The band just recorded a show they played in Atlanta with plans for a possible live CD or DVD. I hate I wasn't able to see it in person but maybe we'll all be watching it together very soon.

Here is the RMR Blues Radio Chart, followed BluesMobile.
