Ditto for Darius: Rucker’s Album and Song on Top Another Week

The Randy Rogers Band, Old Crow Medicine Show Bow New CDs

For the second week in a row, Darius Rucker tops both Billboard’s country songs and country albums charts. His winning song is “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” while his triumphant album is Learn to Live.

But there are a few new wrinkles. The Randy Rogers Band shakes up an otherwise clotted Top 5 albums list by blasting its self-titled album into the No. 3 slot. The only other new CD is Old Crow Medicine Show’s Tennessee Pusher, which bows in at No. 7.

Re-entering the albums chart are Richie McDonald’s I Turn to You (at No. 37), Dolly Parton’s Backwoods Barbie (No. 60) and Playlist: The Very Best of Roy Orbison (No. 73).

Alan Jackson’s “Country Boy” is the only newcomer to the songs chart. It lands at No. 43. Carolina Rain’s “American Radio” returns to action at No. 60.

The other Top 5 albums, in descending order, are Sugarland’s Love on the Inside, Taylor Swift’s self-titled debut and Jessica Simpson’s Do You Know.

Songs No. 2 through No. 5 are Kenny Chesney’s “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven,” Toby Keith’s “She Never Cried in Front of Me,” Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long” and Jimmy Wayne’s “Do You Believe Me Now.”

Swift’s “Love Song” springs from No. 18 to No. 11 in its third week out.

Where are all those new albums we’ve been hearing about?
