Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean Continue to Top Charts

Shania Twain Returns With Highest-Debuting Song

There are no changes at the top of Billboard’s country songs and albums charts this week as Blake Shelton’s “Honey Bee” and Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party continue to hold the No. 1 spots.

But there is a tiny bit of action farther down the list, notably the arrival of one new album and two new songs.

The lone album is the multi-artist anthology Now That’s What I Call Country: Volume 4, which enters at No. 3.

Returning albums include Chris Thile and Michael Daves’ Sleep With One Eye Open (back at No. 37), Kenny RogersThe Love of God (No. 71), Johnny Cash’s American VI: Ain’t No Grave (No. 73), Uncle Kracker’s Happy Hour: The South River Road Sessions EP (No. 74) and Roy D. Mercer’s 10 Great Skits (No. 75).

Shania Twain’s “Today Is Your Day” soars into the songs chart at No. 40, the week’s highest-debuting single. Alan Jackson’s “Long Way to Go” bows prophetically at No. 53.

Making comebacks are Aaron Lewis“Country Boy” (featuring George Jones and Charlie Daniels) (No. 58) and Jacob Lyda’s “I’m Doing Alright” (No. 60).

Filling out the Top 5 albums are Brad Paisley’s This Is Country Music (No. 2), the Zac Brown Band’s You Get What You Give (No. 4) and Taylor Swift’s Speak Now (No. 5).

The No. 2 through No. 5 songs, in that order, are Swift’s “Mean,” The Band Perry’s “You Lie,” Justin Moore’s “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” and Chris Young’s “Tomorrow.”

With only a few new or returning song titles to stitch together to find new meanings, we offer these Title Tales:

Shania Twain + Darius Rucker = “Today Is Your Day; I Got Nothin'”

Alan Jackson + Keith Urban = “Long Way to Go Without You”

Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood + Jacob Lyda = “Remind Me I’m Doing Alright”

Now you take a shot.
