With his star still on the rise, Brad Paisley has once again arrived at No. 1 — this time with “When I Get Where I’m Going,” his touching duet with Dolly Parton. This is Paisley’s fifth No. 1 on Billboard’s country airplay chart. As for Parton, it’s her first time on top since “Rockin’ Years,” her 1991 duet with Ricky Shelton.
Just one notch behind, Josh Turner’s “Your Man” climbs to No. 2. Carrie Underwood’s smash hit “Jesus, Take the Wheel” falls two places to No. 3. Kenny Chesney’s “Living in Fast Forward,” Rascal Flatts’ “What Hurts the Most,” Keith Urban’s “Tonight I Wanna Cry,” Sugarland’s “Just Might (Make Me Believe),” Montgomery Gentry’s “She Don’t Tell Me To,” Toby Keith’s “Get Drunk and Be Somebody” and Trace Adkins’ “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” round out the Top 10.
Chris Cagle enters the chart at No. 56 with “Wal-Mart Parking Lot,” a follow-up to last year’s hit, “Miss Me, Baby.” Other debuts include “That’s How They Do It in Dixie” — the Hank Williams Jr. collaboration with Gretchen Wilson, Big & Rich and Van Zant — at No. 58 and Blaine Larsen’s “I Don’t Know What She Said” at No. 59.
Meanwhile, Underwood continues her reign on the country sales chart with the double-platinum Some Hearts still at No. 1. Turner’s Your Man lands at No. 2, trailed by Rascal Flatts’ Feels Like Today at No. 3 and The Legend of Johnny Cash at No. 4. Ron White’s comedy album, You Can’t Fix Stupid, falls to No. 5. The latest albums from Adkins, Urban, the Totally Country compilation series, Chesney and Sugarland round out the Top 10.
There are no albums debuting on the country chart this week. However, on the bluegrass chart, Canadian folk singer Sarah Harmer’s I’m a Mountain enters at No. 4. Mountain Heart’s Wide Open arrives at No. 6.
And on Billboard’s chart of digital downloads, Willie Nelson has the most popular new track of the week. His recording of “Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly (Fond of Each Other)” debuts at No. 26.
