The top spots of the Top 40 country songs for November 2013 go to hits fans have been hearing for quite awhile. Most months, there is a bottleneck to get to that coveted No. 1 spot. One of country music's most famous hitmakers is king this month, but it was a very, very close competition. 

After debuting at No. 4 last month, Keith Urban's new duet with Miranda Lambert moves up just one spot. Parmalee is a new name inside the Top 5. It was a long, slow crawl to get their song 'Carolina' there, but it's undeniable at this point. Also, congrats to Eric Church for having the month's biggest debut! 'The Outsiders' checks in at No. 9, between new songs from Luke Bryan and Cassadee Pope.
