We're still seeing Red. Eleven weeks after making its bow, Taylor Swift's album of that name still rides comfortably at No. 1 on the Billboard country chart. This week it sold 68,733 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, raising its total sales to 3,175,982.

On the country airplay chart, the Zac Brown Band's "Goodbye in Her Eyes" spends its second week in the crow's nest.

There are two new albums -- Country: The Everly Brothers (No. 66) and Country: Vern Gosdin (No. 70) -- along with four re-entries -- Kenny Rogers' Amazing Grace (No. 58), the soundtrack to the movie Lawless (No. 65), Country: Johnny Cash (No. 68) and Chase Rice's Dirt Road Communion (No. 73).

Six new songs shoulder their way in -- Blake Shelton's "Sure Be Cool If You Did" (No. 32), Darius Rucker's "Wagon Wheel" (No. 51), Jake Owen's "Anywhere With You" (No. 53), Eric Church's "Like Jesus Does" (No. 58), Easton Corbin's "All Over the Road" (No. 59) and Kip Moore's "Hey Pretty Girl" (No. 60).

Bouncing back into the charts now that the Christmas singles have melted away are Aaron Lewis' "Forever" (No. 50), Train's "Bruises," featuring Ashley Monroe (No. 52), Mumford & Sons's "I Will Wait" (No. 54).

Also, Sarah Darling's "Home to Me" (No. 55), Sweetwater Rain's "Starshine" (No. 56) and Big & Rich's "Party Like Cowboys" (No. 57).

Albums No. 2 through No. 5 are Carrie Underwood's Blown Away, Florida Georgia Line's Here's to the Good Times, Jason Aldean's Night Train and Luke Bryan's Tailgates & Tanlines, in that order.

Rounding out the Top 5 songs contingent are Justin Moore's "Til My Last Day," Randy Houser's "How Country Feels," Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" and Kip Moore's "Beer Money."

Say, isn't it exhilarating to see the late Vern Gosdin's name back on the chart? If you've never heard that monumental voice, check him out now. He's unforgettable.
