Gary Allan Wears Triple Billboard Crowns This Week

Published on February 02, 2013 by CMT News

Gary Allan
Sound the trumpets and ring the bells. This is the week Billboard‘s country albums and airplay charts came to a boil.

And
it’s made Gary Allan a very hot item. Not only does he have both the
No. 1 album — Set You Free — and song — “Every
Storm (Runs Out of Rain),”
his new album also tops the Billboard 200 all-genres list.

As this week’s highest
debuting album, Set You Free ends Taylor Swift‘s Red‘s
13-week residence at the summit by selling 106,109 albums compared to Red‘s 31,990, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Shed
no tears for Swift, however. Red has now sold a dazzling 3,297,433 copies. She can afford a break.

Randy
Houser
has cause for champagne, as well. His How Country Feels album bows in at No. 3 on sales of 24,091 copies.

Three
other albums break into the chart this week: Tim McGraw Friends
(No. 18), Emerson Drive‘s Roll (No. 62) and Carrie
Rodriguez
‘s Give Me All You Got (No. 65).

The re-entries are Ryan
Bingham
‘s Tomorrowland (No. 71) and Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale‘s Buddy and Jim (No. 73).

We count five
new songs to watch: Austin Webb’s “It’s All Good” (arriving at No. 53), Chase Rice’s “How She Rolls” (No. 55), Chris Janson’s
“Better I Don’t” (No. 56), Eric Church‘s “Hungover Hard Up” (No.
57) and Joel Crouse’s “If You Want Some” (No. 59).

Returning songs are Lady
Antebellum
‘s “Downtown” (No. 25) and High Valley‘s “Love
You for a Long Time”
(No. 60).

Filling out the Top 5 albums array at No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5, respectively, are
Swift’s Red, Florida Georgia Line‘s Here’s to the
Good Times
and Jason Aldean‘s Night Train.

The No.
2 through No. 5 songs, in that order, are Aldean’s “The Only Way I Know” (featuring Luke
Bryan
and Eric Church), The Band Perry‘s “Better
Dig Two,”
Houser’s “How Country Feels” (last week’s
No. 1) and Brad Paisley‘s “Southern
Comfort Zone.”

Are you aquiver with excitement?
