Carrie Underwood Still Champion With Blown Away

Kip Moore Delivers His First No. 1 Song, "Somethin' 'Bout a Truck"

Blown Away ain’t goin’ away. At least not yet.

For the third week in a row, Carrie Underwood’s new project reposes at the top of Billboard’s country albums chart, selling another 53,779 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, since our last report.

Equally spine-tingling is the fact that Kip Moore has scored his first No. 1 song with “Somethin’ ’Bout a Truck.”

Underwood’s release-to-date sales total, by the way, is 440,897 units. Can a gold party be far behind?

Willie Nelson’s Heroes charges in at No. 4 to become the week’s highest-debuting album. Also making their first appearances are Florida Georgia Line’s It’z Just What We Do (No. 35), Chris Cagle’s 10 Great Songs (No. 68) and Roy D. Mercer’s The Very Worst of Roy D. Mercer: Ultimate Fits! (No. 75).

Returning are the soundtrack Country Strong: More Music From the Motion Picture (No. 73) and George JonesThe Great Lost Hits (No. 74).

Among the new songs, Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over” bows highest at No. 24, followed by Miranda Lambert’s “Fastest Girl in Town” (No. 54) and Rascal Flatts’ “Come Wake Me Up” (No. 59).

The No. 2, No. 3 and No. 5 albums are Lionel Richie’s Tuskegee, Luke Bryan’s Tailgates & Tanlines and Eric Church’s Chief, in that order.

Trailing behind “Somethin’ ’Bout a Truck” in the Top 5 songs parade are Jason Aldean’s “Fly Over States” (last week’s No. 1), the Zac Brown Band’s “No Hurry,” Church’s “Springsteen” and Underwood’s “Good Girl.”

Lights out for now.
