Brad and Keith's excellent adventure lands them atop Billboard's country songs chart this week via their dazzling duet, "Start a Band." Not to be outdone, Taylor Swift keeps her Vise-Grip perch on the summit of the albums list with Fearless -- for the ninth week.
It's taken 18 weeks for the Brad Paisley-Keith Urban pairing to reach the catbird seat.
The two new and six returning albums are all recycled packages. Playlist: The Very Best of Brooks & Dunn debuts at No. 48, while the multi-artist collection, Country's 20 Classic Songs of the Century, tips its hat at No. 67.
Re-entering the competition are Playlist: The Very Best of Roy Orbison (No. 50), The Gospel Music of Johnny Cash (No. 56), Playlist: The Very Best of Dolly Parton (No. 57), Playlist: The Very Best of Willie Nelson (No. 63), Playlist: The Very Best of Waylon Jennings (No. 64) and Playlist: The Very Best of Alabama (No. 74).
John Rich boasts the highest-charting new song as "Another You" bows at No. 51. Parting the curtain at No. 54 is "Whatever It Is" by the Zac Brown Band. Sara Evans' "Low" makes a comeback at No. 59.
Parading immediately behind Paisley and Urban in the Top 5 are Sugarland's "Already Gone," Rascal Flatts' "Here," Billy Currington's "Don't" and Alan Jackson's "Country Boy."
Swift's first album, Taylor Swift, holds the No. 2 spot this week, followed by Sugarland's Love on the Inside, Rascal Flatts' Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 and the Zac Brown Band's The Foundation.
Don't look for any big shake-up among the albums any time soon. But keep an eye on Dierks Bentley's Feel That Fire, which hits the street Feb. 3.
