King Luke: He’s In Charge of the Charts for a Second Week

LeAnn Rimes Has Year's First Charting Christmas Album

Just in time for Halloween – our first Christmas album! More on that in a minute.

It surely must feel like Christmas for Luke Bryan. For the second week in a row, his music tops both Billboard’s country albums chart – with Kill the Lights – and the country airplay rankings – with “Strip It Down.”

He sure has a way with imperative sentences, doesn’t he? How about Win ‘Em All? Suppose that would work?

And now to seasonal joys. LeAnn Rimes has this week’s highest debuting album with her narrowly titled Today Is Christmas. It leaps out of the stocking at No. 18.

Also new are Stoney LaRue’s Us Time (No. 22) and Jake Worthington’s eponymous EP (No. 44).

Returning to the chart are the various-artists package, The Sound of Today: Country! (No. 48), and Tennessee Ernie Ford’s Amazing Grace: 14 Treasured Hymns (No. 50).

There are two new singles – Kip Moore’s “Running for You” (No. 50) and Keith Urban’s “Break on Me” (No. 54).
