You may have to press your ear hard against the Billboard charts this week to detect any sign of life. Taylor Swift and Billy Currington again boast the No. 1 album and song — Fearless and “People Are Crazy,” respectively. And no new titles have risen into either Top 5 cluster.
But there are two new albums and three new songs to cheer about.
Keith Urban’s i-Tunes Originals comes aboard at No. 23, and Larry the Cable Guy’s On the Can settles in at No. 54. Songs making their debut entrance are Dierks Bentley’s “I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes” (No. 51), Alan Jackson’s “I Still Like Bologna” (No. 56) and Whitney Duncan’s “Skinny Dippin'” (No. 60).
Albums returning to the chart include the multi-artist Best of Country Gospel (No. 67), Old Crow Medicine Show’s Tennessee Pusher (No. 68) and Pat Green’s What I’m For (No. 72). Also making a strong comeback is Gloriana’s single, “Wild at Heart” (No. 16).
Wait! Did you hear something move?
