Toby Keith and Luke Bryan Claim Top Ranked Album and Song

Martina McBride and Zac Brown Band Share Highest Debut Honors

Toby Keith’s Clancy’s Tavern and Luke Bryan’s “I Don’t Want This Night to End” are this week’s top album and song, says Billboard.

Clancy’s Tavern debuted at No. 1 in early November and has hovered nearby ever since. Bryan’s song reaches the peak after a 21-week climb.

Martina McBride’s Hits and More registers the highest debut among the week’s three new albums, arriving at No. 11. The other two freshmen titles are Roger Creager’s Surrender (No. 39) and Cory Morrow’s Live at Billy Bob’s Texas (No. 66).

There’s just one new song: the Zac Brown Band’s “No Hurry,” which arrives at No. 51. Clay Walker’s “Like We Never Said Goodbye” pops back in at No. 60.

The No. 2 through No. 5 albums, in that order, are Lady Antebellum’s Own the Night, Bryan’s Tailgates & Tanlines, The Band Perry’s The Band Perry and Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party.

Stacked up behind Bryan in the Top 5 songs line are Chris Young’s “You,” Eric Church’s “Drink in My Hand” (last week’s No. 1), The Band Perry’s “All Your Life” and Zac Brown Band’s “Keep Me in Mind.”

Kind of leaves you breathless, doesn’t it?
