Fourth Week at No. 1 for Carrie Underwood, Second for Kip Moore

The Oak Ridge Boys, Big & Rich Have Top Debuting Album, Song

Looks like it’s going to take a SWAT team to get Carrie Underwood and Kip Moore off the top of Billboard’s country charts.

Underwood’s Blown Away has settled into its fourth week as the best-selling CD while Moore’s “Somethin’ ’Bout a Truck” basks as the most-played country song for the second week.

But traffic is moving briskly farther down the charts with five new albums and three new songs in the mix.

The Oak Ridge BoysBack Home Again: Gospel Favorites debuts at No. 29 and is trailed by Kevin Costner & Modern West’s soundtrack collection, Hatfields & McCoys: Famous for Killing Each Other (No. 38), Six Market Blvd.’s Shake It Down (No. 42), Rob Baird’s I Swear It’s the Truth (No. 57) and Hank WilliamsThe Greatest Hits Live: Volume 1 (No. 73).

Ronnie Dunn’s self-titled album returns at No. 14 and Marty Stuart’s Nashville, Volume 1: Tear the Woodpile Down at No. 72.

The first-time-on songs are Big & Rich’s “That’s Why I Pray” (No. 24), Jessie James’ “Military Man” (No. 55) and Due West’s “Things You Can’t Do in a Car” (No. 60).

Aaron Lewis“Endless Summer” re-enters at No. 58.

Completing the Top 5 albums grouping, in descending order, are Lionel Richie’s Tuskegee, Luke Bryan’s Tailgates & Tanlines, Eric Church’s Chief and Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party.

Songs No. 2 through No. 5 are Zac Brown Band’s “No Hurry,” Church’s “Springsteen,” Underwood’s “Good Girl” and Bryan’s “Drunk on You.”
