Blake Shelton Keeps Top Album Berth, Chris Young Scores Top Song

Martina McBride's "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" Is Week's Highest Song Debut

For the second week in a row, Blake Shelton‘s Red River Blue occupies the pinnacle of Billboard‘s country albums chart.

But there’s a new top song to applaud. Chris Young‘s “Tomorrow” claims the crown following a steady 24-week climb.

The highest-debuting of four new albums is the various artists anthology, Mud Digger: Volume 2, arriving at No. 20. The others are Ricky SkaggsCountry Hits Bluegrass Style (No. 51), the Dirt DriftersThis Is My Blood (No. 57) and Rich O’Toole’s Kiss of a Liar (No. 73).

Revisiting the chart are Dierks Bentley‘s Up on the Ridge, back at No. 74, and the JaneDear Girls‘ self-titled debut (No. 75).

Songs popping up for the first time include Martina McBride‘s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” (No. 50), Craig Morgan‘s “This Ole Boy” (No. 54) and Brett Eldredge‘s “It Ain’t Gotta Be Love” (No. 59).

Parading in directly behind Red River Blue in this week’s Top 5 albums cluster are Jason Aldean‘s My Kinda Party, Young’s Neon, Justin Moore‘s Outlaws Like Me and the Zac Brown Band‘s You Get What You Give, in that order.

The No. 2 through No. 5 songs are Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem” (last week’s No. 1), the Zac Brown Band’s “Knee Deep” (featuring Jimmy Buffett), Lady Antebellum‘s “Just a Kiss” and Shelton’s “Honey Bee.”

Moving up fast: Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood‘s “Remind Me” is at No. 9 after just 10 weeks, and Kenny Chesney‘s “You and Tequila” (with Grace Potter) is at No. 10 in 12 weeks.
