Taylor Swift Is Really Something in Red as Album Saturates the Charts

It will surprise no one who eats Papa John’s Pizza, shops at Target, listens to the radio, watches television, uses social
media or breathes that Taylor Swift’s music saturates the Billboard
charts this week — and not just the country ones.

With Nielsen SoundScan-confirmed sales of 1,208,290 copies its first
week out, Swift’s Red tops Billboard‘s country and all-genres rankings and the digital albums chart as well.

Moreover,
Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back
Together”
holds onto its No. 1 slot on the country songs chart for the fourth consecutive week.

But that ain’t
all, folks. The golden girl has eight new songs on the chart: “I Almost Do,” which, at No. 13, is the week’s highest debut.
Then she has “All Too Well” (No. 17), “Stay Stay Stay” (No. 24), “Treacherous” (No. 26), “Starlight” (No. 28), “Holy Ground”
(No. 32), “The Lucky One” (No. 33) and “Sad Beautiful Tragic” (No. 37).

Like you, we’re puzzled why Swift disses her
high school English teachers by ignoring the rule about using commas to set off items in a series (in her song titles). But,
hey, it’s her galaxy.

The week’s other new songs are Sam Palladio and Claire Bowen’s’ “Fade Into You” (No. 25), Connie
Britton and Charles Esten’s “No One Will Ever Love You” (No. 36) and Hayden Panettiere’s “Telescope” (No. 47). All these are
from actors in the cast of ABC-TV’s Nashville.

There are four other new albums: Lady
Antebellum
‘s On This Winter’s Night (No. 3), Kasey Chambers
and Shane Nicholson’s Wreck Ruin (No. 35), Billy Ray Cyrus’
Change My Mind (No. 38) and Montgomery Gentry’s Friends
and Family
EP (No. 53).

Albums No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5 are Jason
Aldean
‘s Night Train, Little Big Town’s Tornado and
Christmas With Scotty McCreery, respectively.

Rounding
out the Top 5 songs are Carrie Underwood’s “Blown
Away,”
Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise,”
Lee Brice’s “Hard to
Love”
and Luke Bryan’s “Kiss
Tomorrow Goodbye.”

So what’s your verdict on the CMA awards show?
Guilty or not guilty of culturecide?
