However, Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now still refuses to budge from the No. 1 niche on Billboard’s country albums chart it has tenanted for the past six weeks. Here’s another happy fact: Need You Now has boinged back to the peak of the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, boosted there by the past week’s sale of 125,000 copies.
Blake Shelton boasts this week’s highest debuting album. His Hillbilly Bone rockets in at No. 2 on the sale of just under 71,000 units. Leading the new song entries is Little Big Town’s “Little White Church.” It arrives at No. 48.
There are no re-entering albums or songs this time around.
Following Lady A, Shelton, Gokey and Corbin, Taylor Swift’s Fearless stands at No. 5 among the Top 5 CDs, which is pretty amazing when you consider it was released 69 weeks ago.
To quote the late and much-missed Vern Gosdin, “That just about does it — don’t it?”
