Got a minute? That's about all it will take to run down the changes on Billboard's country albums and songs charts.

Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" is once again the No. 1 song, and Carrie Underwood's Play On remains the top CD for the third straight week.

There's just one new album and song to announce. The multi-artist EP, Country for Christmas, debuts at No. 74, while "Pray for You" by Jaron & the Long Road to Love squeezes in at No. 58.

Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheels' Willie & the Wheel re-enters the chart fray at No. 64. And Ron White's Behavioral Problem resurfaces at No. 55.

That's all the new action there is -- and rather unusual considering all the Christmas music that usually comes to a boil about this time each year.

The remaining Top 5 albums lined up behind Underwood are Taylor Swift's Fearless, the self-titled Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw's Southern Voice and the Zac Brown Band's The Foundation, in that order.

Songs No. 2 through No. 5 are Luke Bryan's "Do I," Underwood's "Cowboy Casanova," Reba's "Consider Me Gone" and Craig Morgan's "Bonfire."

But Santa Claus is coming to town. Isn't he?
