Is this farewell to the boondocks? Little Big Town appear to be enjoying
the high life as Tornado, its newest collection of tunes, settles in for its fifth consecutive week at the pinnacle
of Billboard‘s country albums chart.
By Nielsen SoundScan’s current calculation, Tornado has sold more
than 251,000 units.
The stats are comforting for Taylor Swift,
as well. Her emphatic “We Are Never Ever
Getting Back Together” occupies the No. 1 country song spot for the second week.
We count six new albums: Aaron
Watson’s Real Good Time (bowing in at No. 9), Kenny Rogers’ Amazing
Grace (No. 57), Wanda Jackson’s Unfinished Business (No. 61),
Tim O’Brien and Darrell
Scott‘s Live: We’re Usually a Lot Better Than This (No. 64), Hank
Williams‘ The Lost Concert (No. 66) and Playlist: The Very Best of Alan
Jackson (No. 71).
There are four freshmen songs: Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen’s “If I Didn’t Know Better” (No.
29), Uncle Kracker’s “Nobody’s Sad on a Saturday Night” (No. 42), Hayden
Panettiere’s “Love Like Mine” (No. 43) and
