Miss Underwood, the charts are yours. Please use them as long as you like, then deposit them in the bin marked “Wow!”
indeed, Carrie Underwood’s latest single, “Good
Girl,” has now reached the top of Billboard‘s country songs chart to claim equal rank with Underwood’s album, Blown
Away, which has resided on the peak of the CD list for the past five weeks.
New to the albums chart is the circuitously
titled Opus Collection: Commemorating the 80th Anniversary of the Birth of Johnny
Cash, debuting at No. 6. (Wonder if it contains Cash’s immortal “I Traverse on Foot the Figurative but Firm Demarcation
Between Temptation and Fidelity”?)
Also new: Wade Bowen’s Given
(No. 9), the Mavericks’ Suited Up and Ready EP (No. 47) and Hank Williams’ The Greatest Hits Live: Volume 2 (No. 67).
Essential Brooks Dunn re-enters at No. 65 and the soundtrack
Country Strong: More Music From the Motion Picture at No. 73.
There are three new songs to declare: the Mavericks’
“Born to Be Blue” (No. 54), Bucky Covington’s “I Wanna Be That Feeling”
(No. 59) and Lionel Richie’s “Deep River Woman” with Little
Big Town (No. 60).
Jaida Dreyer’s “Guy’s Girl” and Taylor Swift’s
“Eyes Open” come back to the songs chart at No. 55 and No. 58, respectively.
Rounding out the Top 5 albums segment
are Luke Bryan’s Tailgates Tanlines, Richie’s Tuskegee,
Eric Church’s Chief and Jason
Aldean‘s My Kinda Party, in that order.
that you I saw in the parking lot at CMA Music Festival? Nasty!
