Charts: Dierks Bentley’s “Home,” Lady A’s Own the Night Own the Heights

Luke Bryan and The Band Perry Have Highest Debuting Album and Song

There’s a flood of new music charting this week.

But first things first: Lady Antebellum’s Own the Night continues as the first-place album, while Dierks Bentley’s “Home” makes its first appearance as the country’s No. 1 song, Billboard reveals.

It’s a spectacularly good week for Luke Bryan. His Spring Break 4 … Suntan City EP debuts at No. 2, while his gold-selling Tailgates & Tanlines hangs in at No. 3. The former album, by the way, sold just a tad under 30,000 copies its first week out, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

There are four other new albums and eight new songs to rejoice over. The albums are Icon: Gary Allan (No. 29), JB and the Moonshine Band’s Beer for Breakfast (No. 31), Neal McCoy’s redundantly titled XII: Twelve (No. 58) and Ty Stone’s American Style (No. 68).

Icon: Loretta Lynn re-enters the chart at No. 72.

Songs making their initial bow are The Band Perry’s “Postcard From Paris” (No. 52), David Nail’s “Sound of a Million Dreams” (No. 53), Aaron Lewis’ “Endless Summer” (No. 54), James Wesley’s “Walking Contradiction” (No. 55).

Also Toby Keith’s “Beers Ago” (No. 56), Darryl Worley’s “You Still Got It” (No. 57), Matt Stillwell’s “Ignition” (No. 58) and Kristen Kelly’s “Ex-Old Man” (No. 60).

The No. 4 and No. 5 albums are Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party and Eric Church’s Chief, respectively.

Songs No. 2 through No. 5, in that order, are Jake Owen’s “Alone With You,” Taylor Swift’s “Ours,” George Strait’s “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright” and Kenny Chesney’s “Reality” (last week’s No. 1).

Be excited. Be very excited.
