Roll out your superlatives, publicists, Lady Antebellum can use all you’ve got.
Lady A is the toast of Nashville this week as its sophomore album, Need You Now, tops not only Billboard’s country chart but also the all-genre Billboard 200 rankings. Need You Now sold a remarkable 480,922 copies its first week out.
And the excitement helped keep the trio’s self-titled debut CD solidly within the country Top 5. In its 94th week on the charts, Lady Antebellum sold just over 31,000 units and currently stands at No. 3.
Well, enough of this heavy breathing. Let’s check out the other fresh stuff.
David Nail’s “Turning Home” is the highest-debuting of the week’s three new songs. It parts the curtain at No. 49. The other newbies are Tim McGraw’s “Still” (No. 51) and Rascal Flatts’ “Close” (No. 60).
The No. 2 through No. 5 songs, in that order, are Miranda Lambert’s “White Liar,” Brad Paisley’s “American Saturday Night,” Josh Turner’s “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and Darius Rucker’s “History in the Making.”
