Is this farewell to the boondocks? Little Big Town appear to be enjoying the high life as Tornado, its newest collection of tunes, settles in for its fifth consecutive week at the pinnacle of Billboard’s country albums chart.
By Nielsen SoundScan’s current calculation, Tornado has sold more than 251,000 units.
We count six new albums: Aaron Watson’s Real Good Time (bowing in at No. 9), Kenny Rogers’ Amazing Grace (No. 57), Wanda Jackson’s Unfinished Business (No. 61), Tim O’Brien and Darrell Scott’s Live: We’re Usually a Lot Better Than This (No. 64), Hank Williams’ The Lost Concert (No. 66) and Playlist: The Very Best of Alan Jackson (No. 71).
There are four freshmen songs: Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen’s “If I Didn’t Know Better” (No. 29), Uncle Kracker’s “Nobody’s Sad on a Saturday Night” (No. 42), Hayden Panettiere’s “Love Like Mine” (No. 43) and Brett EldredgeNashville.
And in case you’re wondering, Swift still has the three other songs that first charted last week: “Red” (now No. 9), “Begin Again” (No. 16) and “Ronan” (No. 38.)
