    We belong to Each Other

    I guess I am a bad fan. Billboards Hot Country songs has We Belong To Each Other charting at #42 this week. It's been on the chart for 8 weeks. I didn't even know he released this. Wow.

    Just because it's on the chart doesn't mean he's release it formally.

    lol you're not a bad fan

    I didn't know it had charted... don't believe it was released... but you're not the only one who didn't know it was charting (then again I'm not really paying attention to it really... )

    That’s interesting. It was not pushed to country radio and is not receiving any airplay. I wonder what is causing it to be so high on the charts? It is #23 on Amazon country, but Amazon is such a small slice of the streaming world.

    Where was that mentioned? if anything Garth seemed to indicate (don't know if he said it outright or not) that it would NOT be on FUN

    I've seen lots of songs chart that aren't on a full album..

    I don't think We Belong to Each Other will make Fun....I think Shallow will.

    Of course, I have no idea....they both could make the album, maybe neither will make it.

    I'm just ready for the album! I watched the documentary again and Garth sings "Live Again" SOOOOO well! I can't wait to hear that song on the album.

    I think he should have held off on naming the album prior to deciding the entire track list..but I LOVE all the songs he's hit us with so far. The Road I'm On and That's What Cowboys Do are smash hits in my opinion...they are already top ten's on my playlist..haha

    . I can't deny that I'm curious to hear their rendition of 'shallow', but at the same point, how many will think of it as a cash/#'s grab etc.. when it's released (if its released) on FUN... with it having already won an Oscar and being an old (by a year or so) song..

    Of course, I have no idea....they both could make the album, maybe neither will make it.
    Out of the two, I'd wager Shallow would make it.. I think he outright said in ISG at one point that We belong to Each Other would not be on FUN. but then again I'd have to go back and listen to shows again to know for certain..

    I'm just ready for the album! I watched the documentary again and Garth sings "Live Again" SOOOOO well! I can't wait to hear that song on the album.
    amen to that- I'm ready for it too.. I can't say I'm as excited for Live Again, but I do want to hear it and see if my thoughts are changed.. I just remember hearing it at Notre Dame and kinda being of the "what is this?" type of mindset... may have been because it was live

    I think he should have held off on naming the album prior to deciding the entire track list..but I LOVE all the songs he's hit us with so far. The Road I'm On and That's What Cowboys Do are smash hits in my opinion...they are already top ten's on my playlist..haha
    I think there's certainly some radio-friendly tones in whats been released already- I just wanna see the rest released!

    I get your point on Shallow...but To Make You Feel My Love was also a hit for other people...and was written/ recorded by Bob Dylan, and it was still a huge success for GB.

    Just sayin If Shallow helps Fun sell , that's totally fine with me...

    I think country and pop have always redid songs. If it is a good song it can be a hit for both genre's. I just want the album out.

    After dropping off the chart last week, We belong To each Other, reenters the chart back at 42. It's been on the chart a total of 9 weeks but has never gotten higher than #42.

    Not expected from this song but it actually moved up a notch to its highest position. It is now #41 on Hot Country Songs.

    How? Are there any radio stations actually playing it? I admittedly don’t listen to the radio that much, but has anyone heard this getting airplay?

    Hot Country Songs chart is a sales/Airplay/streaming hybrid chart. I havenít seen any evidence this is getting any radio play. To my knowledge it has not appeared on country airplay chart. That means it would have to be from Amazon streaming I think.

    Is this song going to be on FUN? I have pre-ordered FUN, but I don't have the song on Amazon Music. I can only see/play the music that I have bought, I have no subscription to streaming.

    From what I understand, no it's not on FUN.. it was something thats "in progress" or being worked on somehow and was shown to Robin Roberts / shared with her, and was then shown/shared with others..

    At least thats' "officially" the case I think.. Garth could easily change his mind and put it on there somehow, but I dont believe it's set to be on FUN

    Yeah, it is my understanding that it will not be on Fun. Garth said it's too special to try and sell or something like that. He said he would eventually find a way to release it sometime down the road. For now, it's only available for streaming on Amazon as it's own thing, and not connected to the Fun pre-orders.

    I listened to it once and that was enough for me. It’s not a good song to me

    In fairness Randa, it seems you haven’t liked hardly anything Garth has done since the comeback.

    I was not a fan of MAM for the most part. Loved half of gunslinger and so far not real excited by Fun from what I have heard. I think garth is stuck in the middle between modern country and traditional country and he donít know what direction to go.

    The song remains #41 in its 11 th week. Last week it was #41. Will be interesting if it goes any higher. I asked a couple of friends who listen to country radio and they never heard of the song.

    I dont' think it was really released much, despite there being a 'charting' of the song...

    The song had another arrow and moved up tp #39 from #41 after 13 weeks of charting. Not a big move but a move up.

    I think the song has run its course. It dropped off the chart this week. Will it resurface or be replaced by Shallow?
