Miranda Lambert’s sterling showing on the recent ACM Awards show is paying off big time this week. Her The Weight of These Wings returns to No. 1 on Billboard’s country albums chart, 20 weeks after it first entered.
Concurrently, “Tin Man,” the song Lambert performed so dramatically on the ACM telecast, enjoys the week’s highest airplay debut, coming in at No. 53.
Brothers Osborne’s Pawn Shop vaults from No. 44 to No. 19.
In addition to Lambert’s “Tin Man,” there are two more new songs — Little Big Town’s “Happy People” (in at No. 56 and also an ACM performance highlight) and Bailey Bryan’s “Own It” (No. 60).
Last week’s No. 1 album, RaeLynn’s Wildhorse, has dropped to No. 32.
More challenges in our Title Tales game? Well, OK. You know I can’t refuse you anything. “Happy People”/”Rebound”/”In Case You Didn’t Know” (Little Big Town/Drew Baldridge/Brett Young) and “Body Like a Back Road”/”Yours If You Want It” (Sam Hunt/Rascal Flatts).
Let’s just end it here — OK?
