Billboard Chart Flash: Week of June 14 – 20

For the fourth straight week in a row, Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert stay put atop the Billboard country charts. Read the Flash to find out who follows them this week.

Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now spends its 21st week atop the Billboard Country Albums chart by seling an additional 40,000 copies. The album’s total sales are now just under the 2.3 million mark. Returning to the runner-up spot this week is the Zac Brown Band with its album, The Foundation. Last week’s number 2 album, Dierks Bentley’s Up on the Ride, slides down into the third spot. Miranda Lambert’s Revolution jumps back into the top 5 at number 4 on the heels of her single, “The House That Built Me,” holding strong at number one on the songs chart. Rounding out the top 5 is Carrie Underwood’s platinum seller, Play On.

On the Hot Country Songs chart, Miranda Lambert resides in the number one spot for a fourth week with “The House That Built Me.” The single becomes the year’s longest running number song to date. Jason Aldean’s “Crazy Town” spends another week at number 2 while Brad Paisley’s “Water” maintains its hold on the number 3 spot. Inching closer to the number 1 spot is Luke Bryan’s “Rain is a Good Thing” which climbs up one spot to number 4. After cracking the top four last week, Clay Walker slides back to the number 5 spot with his comeback hit, “She Won’t Be Lonely Long.”

This week debut songs are led by the Randy Rogers Band’s “Too Late For Goodbye” which bows in at no. 55. Other debut songs include Bomshel’s “Just Fine” (no. 56), Steel Magnolia’s “Just By Being You (Halos and Wings)” (no. 57), and George Strait’s “The Breath You Take” (no. 58). This week’s largest leap comes from Toby Keith who jumps up nine spots to no. 46 with “Trailerhood.”

That’s it for this week’s Chart Flash, I would try to build some suspense for next week’s charts but more than likely Lady A and Miranda Lambert will occupy the top spots for a fifth week. But, someone could pull off an upset. Come back next week to find out!
