Gary Allan enjoys the view from No. 1 on the Billboard chart for the second week with his album Set You Free.
But Allan’s “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)” drops back to No. 2 on the songs chart, elbowed out of the top spot by Jason Aldean ’s “The Only Way I Know,” featuring guest vocals by Luke Bryan and Eric Church .
The week’s new albums are Kris Kristofferson ’s Feeling Mortal (No. 22), Blue Sky Riders’ Finally Home (No. 30), Dale Watson and His Lonestars’ El Rancho Azul (No. 57) and the various artists collection, True American Country (No. 65).
Kenny Chesney ’s “Pirate Flag” is the highest-debuting song, zooming in at No. 22. The other first-timers are Blackberry Smoke ’s “Pretty Little Lie” (No. 53), Parmalee’s “Carolina” (No. 58) and Tyler Farr’s “Redneck Crazy” (No. 59).
Remember the Grammys — Sunday (Feb. 10) — on CBS-TV. They’re almost certain to light up the charts.
