O Brother Rebounds to Reclaim No. 1 Chart Spot
Garth Brooks' Scarecrow has been dethroned after seven straight weeks as the top-selling country album. The new champion? Same as last year's -- the soundtrack that has become a phenomenon.

Now certified quadruple platinum, with shipments in excess of 4 million copies, O Brother, Where Art Thou? reclaims the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for its 25th week over the past year. Scarecrow, with shipments of over 3 million copies, drops to No. 2.

Toby Keith's Pull My Chain continues in the No. 3 slot, Martina McBride's Greatest Hits climbs a notch to No. 4 and the Coyote Ugly soundtrack rises to No. 5.

Previously charting albums that re-enter the chart this week are Dolly Parton's Grammy-nominated Little Sparrow at No. 74 and the Driven soundtrack (with tracks by Jo Dee Messina, LeAnn Rimes and Tim McGraw) at No. 75.

Alan Jackson's "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" tops the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart for the fourth straight week. George Strait's "Run" climbs a notch to No. 2, Aaron Tippin's "Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly" drops to No. 3, Steve Holy's "Good Morning Beautiful" holds at No. 4 and Keith's "I Wanna Talk About Me" stays at No. 5.

Trace Adkins' "I'm Tryin'" holds at No. 6. Brooks' "Wrapped Up in You" continues at No. 7. Brad Paisley's "Wrapped Around" stays at No. 8. Climbing one position to No. 9 is "Bring on the Rain" by Messina with McGraw and David Ball's "Riding With Private Malone" drops to No. 10.

Debuting on the singles chart are the Strait-Jackson duet on "Designated Drinker" at No. 54, Trick Pony's "Just What I Do" at No. 55 and Gary Allan's "The One" at No. 56.
