Let’s have a hand for Billy Currington, whose “People Are Crazy” pops this week to the top of Billboard’s country songs chart. And a jaunty thumbs up as well for Taylor Swift’s Fearless as it reasserts itself as the No. 1 country album.
Otherwise, it’s a pretty tranquil scene — just one new album and one new song to report, neither of which makes a big wave. Country Classics, a multi-artist collection of hits, barely cracks the chart at No. 75. Brad Paisley’s “Water,” a track from his new American Saturday Night album, sneaks in at No. 58 as his current single, “Welcome to the Future,” climbs to No. 21 just four weeks after its release.
Albums returning to action include the Lost Trailers’ Holler Back (re-emerging at No. 69), Craig Morgan’s That’s Why (No. 72), the Randy Rogers Band’s self-titled release (No. 73) and Elvis Presley’s Collector’s Edition: Elvis Inspirational Memories (No. 74).
Rounding out this week’s Top 5 albums list are Paisley’s American Saturday Night (last week’s No. 1), the soundtrack to Hannah Montana: The Movie, the Zac Brown Band’s The Foundation and Jason Aldean’s Wide Open, in that order.
The No. 2 through No. 5 songs are Darius Rucker’s “Alright,” Lady Antebellum’s “I Run to You” (last week’s No. 1), Swift’s “You Belong With Me” and the Zac Brown Band’s “Whatever It Is.”
