Terri Clark is the only woman in Billboard's Top 10 country singles this week as "I Wanna Do It All" climbs four spots to No. 10. Clark almost topped the charts earlier this year when "I Just Wanna Be Mad" peaked at No. 2. Now, as the year draws to a close, women have a good reason to be mad because no female solo artists have had a No. 1 hit in 2003. However, the Dixie Chicks marched to the top with "Travelin' Soldier," but that was just before Natalie Maines uttered those infamous words.
Aside from Clark, it's mostly the usual suspects in the Top 10. Kenny Chesney holds onto No. 1 for the second week with "There Goes My Life." George Strait's "Cowboys Like Us" (at No. 2) and Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar" (No. 3) are on the way down, while Brooks & Dunn's "You Can't Take the Honky Tonk Out of the Girl" (No. 4) and Alan Jackson's "Remember When" (No. 5) continue to climb. Chris Cagle's "Chicks Dig It" falls to No. 6, Rodney Atkins' "Honesty (Write Me a List)" jumps to No. 7 and Lonestar's "Walking in Memphis" stalls at No. 8. Tracy Byrd's "Drinkin' Bone" enters the Top 10 at No. 9.
Rachel Proctor's "Didn't I" leads the parade of new singles at No. 51. Also debuting: Pat Green's "Winter Wonderland" and "A Guy Like Me" at Nos. 53 and 54; Jimmy Wayne's "Paper Angels" at No. 55; Chesney's "Jingle Bells" at No. 57; Christian band MercyMe's pop hit "I Can Only Imagine" at No. 58; and Big & Rich's "Wild West Show."
Keith dominates the country albums chart as Shock'n Y'all holds steady at No. 1, followed by the latest albums from Jackson, Shania Twain and the Chicks. Meanwhile, Keith's Unleashed moves up a slot to No. 5. Chesney's All I Want for Christmas Is a Real Good Tan appears at No. 6, followed by new albums from Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes and Rascal Flatts. Chesney's No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems rounds out the Top 10.
Among the 10 Christmas albums on the chart this week, Kathy Mattea's Joy for Christmas debuts at No. 69.
