Meanwhile, Tim McGraw’s Emotional Traffic settles in for its second week as the nation’s best-selling country album.
There are only two new songs and two fresh albums to mention.
The top-ranking new song is Eric Church’s “Springsteen” (No. 52). Thomas Rhett’s “Something to Do With My Hands” (not to be confused with Sarah Darling’s “Something to Do With Your Hands” ) arrives at No. 58.
Sugarland’s “Run,” featuring Matt Nathanson, returns to the chart at No. 60.
Trailing McGraw in the Top 5 albums cluster are, in descending order, Luke Bryan’s Tailgates & Tanlines, Lady Antebellum’s Own the Night, Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party and Toby Keith’s Clancy’s Tavern.
Despite Valentine’s Day coming up on Tuesday, there’s not much love in country music today. Not if you go by the song titles. Only five of the Top 60 songs this week have the word “love” in their titles.
And they are Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” (No. 8), George Strait’s “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright” (No. 10), Andy Gibson’s “Wanna Make You Love Me” (No. 32), Josh Turner’s “Time Is Love” (No. 36) and Alan Jackson’s “So You Don’t Have to Love Me Anymore” (No. 44).
Who would have guessed it?
