Reba McEntire’s New Album Rules the Roost on Two Charts

Jason Aldean Drives "Big Green Tractor" Into Winner's Circle

Records, concerts, TV, movies, Broadway — whatever the medium, Reba McEntire seems wired to win. And she wins big again this week as her new album, Keep On Loving You, debuts at the top of both Billboard’s country and all-genres charts.

In so doing, the resilient redhead elbows George Strait’s Twang CD back to No. 2 on both these rankings.

That other roaring sound you hear is Jason Aldean’s “Big Green Tractor,” which parks itself in the circle reserved for America’s No. 1 country song.

The only other new album surfacing this week is David Nail’s I’m About To Come Alive. It bows in at No. 19.

Miranda Lambert’s “White Liar” is the highest-charting new song, arriving at No. 50. It is trailed by four other first-timers: Josh Turner’s “Why Don’t We Just Dance” (No. 57), Lee Brice’s “Love Like Crazy” (No. 57), Michelle Branch’s “Sooner or Later” (No. 59) and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “A Good Day” (No. 60).

Albums re-entering the fray are Wynonna’s Sing: Chapter 1 (No. 52), Elvis Presley’s Collector’s Edition: Elvis Inspiration Memories (No. 54), Reba’s 50 Greatest Hits (No. 66) and James Otto’s Sunset Man (No. 72).

Easton Corbin’s “A Little More Country Than That” returns to the songs list at No. 47.

Albums No. 3 through No. 5, in that order, include the soundtrack to Hannah Montana: The Movie, Taylor Swift’s Fearless and the Zac Brown Band’s The Foundation.

Following Aldean in the Top 5 songs set are Rascal Flatts“Summer Nights,” Darius Rucker’s “Alright,” Randy Houser’s “Boots On” and Strait’s “Living for the Night.”
