DCMF Chart Voting
Last Update: 12/10/13
Reason: Removed Part 1 voting link for the 12/15-12/21/13 Chart Voting
You are only allowed to complete each survey once. Repeat submissions from the same IP Address are not accepted.
If no links are posted here, then there is no currently active voting.
Part 1 [open Sunday evenings through 11:59pm PDT Mondays]
Part 2 [open Tuesday evenings through 11:59pm PDT Wednesdays]
Keeper Voting: [open early Thursday mornings until 6am EDT Fridays]
Parts 1 and 2 help determine the chart. The Keeper Voting determines from a list of song eligible to be removed from the voting what songs are kept in the voting.
Table of Contents:
A. DCMF Voting Adds- a list of songs just added to the DCMF Voting.
B. Inactive Songs- a list of songs that are on the DCMF Chart but not a part of the DCMF Voting anymore.
C. Tiebreakers- explains the tiebreakers used in the DCMF Voting and on the DCMF Chart when needed.
A. New Songs:
As of Part 1 of the voting for the 12/15-12/21/13 DCMF Chart, which takes place on Monday, December 1st, the following are songs new to the DCMF Voting process:
Rob Baird- Same Damn Thing
Court Yard Hounds- Sunshine
Dirty River Boys- Desert Wind
Brian Keane- Bar Lights
Brad Paisley- The Mona Lisa
Ray Johnston Band- Crush
Charlie Robison- Brand New Me
Charlie Worsham- Want Me Too
Songs are added to the DCMF Chart in one of four ways:
1. It is the official “Add Date” of the Single
2. A single with either a currently unknown Add Date or a future Add Date is located anywhere on the weekly publications for the MediaBase or Billboard Charts
3. The song enters the Top 50 on the Texas Regional Radio Report
4. You (fan or artist) request the song to be added by e-mailing email@example.com. The song must be an official current single by the artist with or without an official Add Date and can be for any artist who sings Country Music.
On occasion, I might add a single without it meeting any of these requirements if I feel it should be added.
B. Inactive Songs:
The following songs have been declared inactive and have been removed from the DCMF Voting. Song can become inactive through losing the Keeper Voting or if the artist releases a new single (weeks inactive in parentheses, any songs at 3 are being removed from the chart entirely after the week listed below):
“Southern Girl” by Tim McGraw (3)
“Good Man” by Taylor Hodak Band (3)
“Whiskey Sunday” by LiveWire (3)
“Tattoo Tears” by Brandon Jenkins (3)
“Road Trip” by Josh Fuller (2)
“I Miss You” by The Henningsens (2)
“Ride With Me” by Cody Johnson (2)
“White Lines and Road Signs” by George Ducas (2)
“Until We Turn Around” by John David Kent (2)
“Love is War” by American Young (2)
“Spinning My Wheels” by Dolly Shine (2)
“Radio Up” by Steve Holy (1)
“If You Ever Get Lonely” by Love and Theft (1)
“Resident Redneck” by Matt Farris (1)
“Pray the Night” by Brandon Rhyder (1)
“Mine for the Mile” by Dusty Smirl (1)
“Let Your Lonesome End With Me” by Mario Flores (1)
These songs are considered inactive for the voting for the chart week of 12/15 to 12/21/13 and will be represented as such on the chart based on the number of weeks the song has been inactive. The reasons for a song being declared inactive are the artist has released a new single or the song has been voted inactive as part of the DCMF Keeper Voting.
The last week on the chart for songs with a (3) after them is the next chart, the 12/15 to 12/21/13 edition
The last week for songs with a (2) after them is the 12/22 to 12/28/13 edition
The last week for songs with a (1) after them is the 12/22 to 12/28/13 edition as I am removing all inactive songs from 2013 before the first 2014 chart.
In the event of a tie in any voting process, the song that has been on the chart the longest wins. If that does not break the tie the song that was higher on the chart the previous week wins.
In the event of a tie after the chart has been calculated, the song with the most Level Points wins. If the songs are still tied, the song that had the largest increase in points wins. If the tie has yet to be broken, the song that has been on the chart the longest wins. If that still does not break the tie, the song that was higher on the chart previous week wins.
In the event of a tie for the #1 song at the maximum score of 125 points, the song who was ranked higher (with or without tiebreakers) on the Impression Points Voting that week wins. If the songs are tied at a number less than 125 points, the normal tiebreakers apply.
