It’s been a long and winding road, but Brad Paisley’s “Waitin’ on a Woman,” which first appeared on the singer’s Time Well Wasted album in 2005, finally arrives this week at the peak of Billboard’s country songs chart. Once released as a single, however, it took “Waitin'” a mere 13 weeks to make the climb.
On the country albums chart, Sugarland’s Love on the Inside reasserts its hold on the No. 1 spot, bumping last week’s champ, the multi-artist collection, NOW That’s What I Call Country, down to No. 2.
The remaining Top 5 songs are Jimmy Wayne’s “Do You Believe Me Now” (last week’s No. 1), Darius Rucker’s “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” Keith Urban’s “You Look Good in My Shirt” and Kenny Chesney’s “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven” (which catapults into the Top 5 just six weeks after it entered the chart).
Be patient. Things will heat up soon.
