Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party Holds On to First Place

Luke Bryan's "Someone Else Calling You Baby" Is Top Country Song

The party’s still going strong for Jason Aldean, but Luke Bryan has the No. 1 song on Billboard’s country songs chart.

For the second straight week, Aldean’s My Kinda Party is the nation’s No. 1 country album while Bryan’s “Someone Else Calling You Baby” leapfrogs Blake Shelton’s “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking” to win the songs trophy.

Thompson Square’s self-titled collection is the week’s highest-debuting album, zooming in at No. 3. Also making their initial entrances are the various-artists package The Music Inside: A Collaboration Dedicated to Waylon Jennings: Volume I (No. 22) and Best of Kenny Rogers (No. 42).

Johnny Cash’s American IV: Ain’t No Grave re-enters the chart at No. 75.

There are four new songs to note: Justin Moore’s “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” (No. 46); Walker Hayes’ “Why Wait for Summer” (No. 53), Tim McGraw and Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Me and Tennessee” (No. 57) and Chris Young’s “Tomorrow” (No. 58).

David Nail’s “Let It Rain” bounces back in at No. 54.

The No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5 albums, in that order, are Taylor Swift’s Speak Now, Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now and the Zac Brown Band’s You Get What You Give.

With Aldean and Shelton taking the first and second slots, the other Top 5 songs are Young’s “Voices” (last week’s No. 1), Kenny Chesney’s “Somewhere With You” and Brad Paisley’s “This Is Country Music.”

Ronnie Dunn’s “Bleed Red” is already up to No. 24 after only two weeks of airplay. That’s the highest he’s ever scored as a single artist. In 1983 and 1984 — long before there was a Brooks & Dunn — he charted two singles: “It’s Written All Over Your Face” and “She Put the Sad in All His Songs.” Oddly enough, they both peaked at No. 59. He wrote neither song.
