Taylor Swift Keeps ‘Speak Now’ at No. 1
Taylor Swift retains her hold on the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart this week, selling another 182,000 copies of 'Speak Now.' The album also moves back up to No. 2 on the Billboard 200, outsold only by Susan Boyle's holiday-themed 'The Gift.'
The Band Perry are at No. 1 for a second week on the Country Digital Tracks chart with 'If I Die Young,' edging out Sugarland's 'Stuck Like Glue' for a second week. The No. 3 track for the week is Kenny Chesney's 'Somewhere With You,' which was No. 7 one week ago. Making a healthy move from No. 22 to No. 16 this week is 'Let Me Down Easy,' by Billy Currington.
Meanwhile, as the holidays get closer, two seasonal hits continue to move up the chart, with Faith Hill's 'Where Are You, Christmas' at No. 12 and the Bobby Helms favorite 'Jingle Bell Rock' at No. 13.
The top new country album this week is Tim McGraw's collection, 'Number One Hits.' which lands at No, 6 on the chart, just ahead of two Lady Antebellum collections: 'Need You Now' at 7 and 'Merry Little Christmas' at 8.
Lady A's single, 'Need You Now,' remains the best-selling digital country track for the year, with more than three million downloads. Another track that's getting close to one million downloads is 'Pray for You' by Jaron and the Long Road to Love.
