Never underestimate the power of positive thinking.
“Yeah” is Nichols’ fifth chart-topper.
And while we’re on the subject of heights, let it be noted that Miranda Lambert’s Platinum continues its reign as country music’s bestselling album.
There isn’t a lot of action on the current charts — just two new albums and two first-time singles.
(Blackberry Smoke’s “Leave a Scar” title cut, we discovered with some relief, is not the same as the Marilyn Manson song of the same name.)
Randy Travis’ Hymns: 17 Timeless Songs of Faith comes back onto the chart at No. 45, while the multi-artist package Now That’s What I Call a Country Party returns at No. 46.
Brett Eldredge’s “Mean to Me,” makes its entrance at No. 56.
The No. 2 through No. 5 songs, in that order, are Chris Young’s “Who I Am With You,” Tyler Farr’s “Whiskey in My Water,” Jake Owen’s “Beachin'” (last week’s No. 1) and Billy Currington’s “We Are Tonight.”
Bunching up behind Platinum within the Top 5 albums cluster are Brantley Gilbert’s Just as I Am, Luke Bryan’s Crash My Party, Florida Georgia Line’s Here’s to the Good Times and Colt Ford’s Thanks for Listening.
Our title-tales mashups are “God Made Girls/Mean to Me,” “Home Sweet Home/Dirt” and “River Bank/Dirt.”
Did we leave a scar?
