Steady sales have kept Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away among
the Top 5 country albums on Billboard‘s country albums chart since it debuted at No. 1 some 18 weeks ago. This week,
it bounces back to No. 1 and now boasts total sales of almost 750,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

And speaking
of buoyancy, Little Big Town’s “Pontoon”
has now floated to the peak of Billboard‘s country songs chart, an ascension that took, oddly enough, also 18 weeks.
It’s the quartet’s first No. 1 single.

Josh Turner’s Live Across
America
is the highest-debuting album, entering at No. 9 on sales of 8,188 copies.

The other newcomers are Thomas Rhett’s self-titled EP (No. 24), the soundtrack to Lawless
(No. 52), the eponymous Ingram Hill (No. 54) and the Flatlanders’ The Odessa Tapes (No. 75).

Re-entering
the country albums list are Martina McBride’s Eleven (No. 64),
Glen Campbell’s Ghost on the Canvas (No. 65) and Lyle
Lovett
‘s Release Me (No. 74).

There are five new songs: Darius
Rucker
‘s “True Believers” (No. 26), Kasey Musgraves’ “Merry Go ‘Round” (No. 50), Tyler
Farr
‘s “Hello Goodbye” (No. 54), Gary Allan’s “Every Storm (Runs Out
of Rain)” (No. 55) and Craig Morgan’s “More Trucks Than Cars” (No. 56).

The
No. 2 though No. 5 albums are the Zac Brown Band’s Uncaged,
Luke Bryan’s Tailgates Tanlines, Eric
Church
‘s Chief and Dustin Lynch’s self-titled debut (last week’s
No. 1), in that order.

Bunching directly behind LBT’s “Pontoon” are Josh
Turner‘s “Time Is Love,” Hunter
Hayes
‘ “Wanted,” Blake
Shelton
‘s “Over” (last week’s No. 1) and Jana
Kramer
‘s “Why Ya Wanna.”

At last, autumn is upon us
and, with its arrival, a merciful end to all those clichés of summer celebration — beer coolers, back roads and bikinis.
Yeah, like that’s ever gonna happen.
