This week sees new artists taking over the top spots on both of Billboard’s
country charts. Find out who the new number ones are in this week’s Chart Flash.
For the fifth week in a row a newly released album occupies to top of Billboard’s Country Albums chart. This week Darius Rucker’s sophomore country album, Charleston, SC 1966, sold over 100,700 copies to debut at number one. Making an impressive debut at number two is the debut album from the trio The Band Perry which sold just over 52,500 copies in its debut week. Falling one spot to number three is Kenny Chesney’s latest release, Hemingway’s Whiskey, while the Zac Brown Band’s You Get What You Give also falls down one spot to number four. Last week’s number one album, Bullets in the Gun by Toby Keith, plummets down to the number five spot in its second week out.
Over on the Hot Country Songs chart, Easton Corbin scores his second consecutive number one single as “Roll With It” takes over the top spot. Right on Corbin’s heels is Darius Rucker’s latest smash hit, “Come Back Song,” while Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” leaps two spots to number three. Last week’s number one single, Josh Turner’s “All Over Me,” slides down three spots to number four while Kenny Chesney’s “Boys of Fall” rounds out the top five songs.
Surprisingly, there are no debut singles to report this week. However, this week’s greatest gainer is Craig Morgan’s latest single, “Still A Little Chicken Left on that Bone,” which jumps up four spots to number 47.
Next week, Sugarland’s newest release, The Incredible Machine, will be the new number one country album in the land and could be the new number one album on the all-genre Billboard 200. Over on the singles chart, Darius Rucker could bump Easton Corbin’s “Roll With It” out of the top spot. There should be some shakeups on charts so we’ll, of course, sort out all the changes in next week’s Chart Flash.
