Billboard Chart Flash: Week of Feb. 15 – 21

For the third week in a row, Lady Antebellum and Josh Turner keep their strong holds on top of the Billboard Country Albums and Hot Country Songs charts. Read to see if there was any other movement on this week’s charts.

In their fourth week on the charts, Lady Antebellum keeps its firm grip on the number one position on the Country Albums Chart. This week, Lady A sold another 144,000 copies which pushed them over the one million mark, making Need You Now Lady A’s second platinum album. The rest of the top five albums remain in the same order as well with Josh Turner’s Haywire holding strong at number two and Taylor Swift’s Fearless trailing in the third slot. The Zac Brown Band’s The Foundation remains number four while Carrie Underwood’s Play On holds steady at number five.

Only two albums made their debuts this week with the Josh Abbott Band’s She’s Like Texas coming in at twenty-eight while Brandon Rhyder’s Head Above Water slides into the forty-first position.

Over on the singles chart, Josh Turner is still making people dance with his hit “Why Don’t We Just Dance” which holds as the top country song in America for a third week in a row. Holding strong at number two is Brad Paisley’s latest hit, “American Saturday Night.” Darius Rucker’s “History in the Making” slides up one to number three while Jason Aldean’s “The Truth” falls one to number four. Billy Currington’s “That’s How Country Boys Roll” keeps its hold on the number five position.

This week saw five songs debut on the Hot Country Songs chart with Jason Aldean’s “Crazy Town” leading the pack at number 49. Miranda Lambert tries to follow up the massive success of “White Liar” with her next single, “The House That Built Me,” which comes in at 51. Jerrod Niemann comes in at 52 with “Lover, Lover” while Ash Bowers’ “Ain’t No Stopping Her Now” finishes at 53. The fifth debut of the week belongs to Blaine Larsen and his song “Chillin'” which bows in at 54.

With the release of Sarah Buxton’s debut album this week, we’ll see if Lady Antbellum can make it five weeks atop the albums chart or if Need You Now will finally be dethroned. Meanwhile, Brad Paisley is trying to score his 17th number one hit, but Josh Turner will try to hold him off for another week.
