Carrie Underwood Blows Into No. 1 Album Spot with Blown Away

Published on May 12, 2012 by CMT News

Carrie Underwood
With out-of-the-box sales of more than 267,000 copies — according to the Nielsen SoundScan count — Carrie
Underwood
‘s Blown Away tops both Billboard‘s country and all-genres album charts this week.

In a
further demonstration that blondes rule, Miranda Lambert’s “Over
You”
(which she co-wrote with hubby Blake Shelton) zooms into No.
1 on the songs chart.

Underwood’s is the only new album to report. However, the
Little Willies
For the Good Times re-enters the list at No. 75, perhaps buoyed there by the release of Willies
member Norah Jones’ new CD, Little Broken Hearts. It debuts at No.
2 on the all-genres tally.

There are three new songs: Little Big
Town
‘s “Pontoon” (bowing in at No. 51), Shelton’s “Over” (No. 53 and not to be confused with his wife’s “Over You”) and
Montgomery Gentry’s “So Called Life” (No. 59).

The remaining
Top 5 albums, in descending order, are Lionel Richie’s Tuskegee
(last week’s No. 1), Luke Bryan’s Tailgates Tanlines, Lee
Brice
‘s Hard 2 Hold and Kip Moore’s Up All Night.

Songs
No. 2 through No. 5 are Jason Aldean’s “Fly
Over States,”
Rascal Flatts’ “Banjo”
(last week’s No. 1), the Zac Brown Band’s “No
Hurry”
and Moore’s “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck.”

Sad
to say there’s not a single “mama” song on the chart as Mother’s Day rolls in. We can take some comfort, though, in the fact
that the Farm’s “Home
Sweet Home”
mentions to the smell of “mama’s cookin’.” Some comfort — but not much. Is mama entirely out of fashion as
a song subject these days?
