Dierks Bentley’s “Drunk on a Plane” in Holding Pattern at No. 1

Chase Rice's Ignite the Night Debuts as Week's Top Album

That persistent buzz you hear is Dierks Bentley’s “Drunk on a Plane” circling at the top of Billboard’s country airplay chart for its second week. It’s Bentley’s 12th No. 1 single.

As reported Wednesday (Aug. 27), Chase Rice’s Ignite the Night debuted as the week’s best-selling country album.

Arriving just behind Chase at No. 2 is the multiple-artist collection, Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue. (Do you suppose there’s a tribute on the horizon for the Spice Girls?)

The remaining new albums are Joel Crouse’s Even the River Runs (No. 20), the various artists package Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited (No. 23) and Mike Ryan’s Bad Reputation (No. 34).

Returning to action are Tennessee Ernie Ford’s Amazing Grace: 14 Treasured Hymns (No. 24), Garth BrooksBlame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences (No. 40) and Blackberry Smoke’s Leave a Scar, Live: North Carolina (No. 49).

Only two new singles enter the chart this week. They are Montgomery Gentry’s “Headlights” (No. 52) and Taylor Swift’s pop showcase, “Shake It Off” (No. 58).

Rounding out the Top 5 albums list, in descending order, are Luke Bryan’s Crash My Party (last week’s No. 1), Brantley Gilbert’s Just as I Am and Miranda Lambert’s Platinum.

The No. 2 through No. 5 singles are Tim McGraw’s “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s,” Lady Antebellum’s “Bartender,” Kenny Chesney’s “American Kids” and Dustin Lynch’s “Where It’s At (Yep, Yep).”

The prosecution rests (yep, yep).
