Luke Bryan has two songs on the Top 40 Country Songs for December 2012 list -- both in the Top 10 -- but neither is the month's hottest. It's a repeat honor for one country duo, who just one year ago were unsigned newcomers looking for a break.

The Band Perry make a big leap this month, and new singles from Toby Keith, Brantley Gilbert and Hayden Panettiere also make a showing. Also making strong jumps in the Top 40 in December are the latest singles from Gary Allan, Little Big Town and Zac Brown Band, who pounced 18 spots to rest inside the Top 5.
