Taylor Swift’s ‘Speak Now’ Returns to the Top
Taylor Swift returns to the top of Billboard's Country Albums chart this week, after dropping to No. 3 last week. The country superstar's third studio album, 'Speak Now,' also moves back up the Billboard 200 from No. 9 to No. 4 and is just shy of two million copies sold since its release just five weeks ago.
Rascal Flatts, who topped the country chart last week with 'Nothing Like This,' are at No. 2, with Keith Urban's 'Get Closer' dropping from No. 2 to No. 3. Alan Jackson has the highest debut on the country album chart as his '34 Number Ones' bows at No. 7.
On the Top Country Digital chart, the Band Perry's 'If I Die Young' has climbed to the pinnacle and has also amassed downloads in excess of one million. Sugarland's 'Stuck Like Glue' has also hit the one million mark, even as it slips to No. 2 for the week. And just as we celebrate the last month of 2010, Taylor's 'Back to December' vaults from No. 9 from No. 3, with 403,000 total downloads for that track since its release six weeks ago.
Also moving up the digital download chart this week, signaling the rapidly approaching holidays, are perennial favorites from Faith Hill ('Where Are You Christmas'). Bobby Helms ('Jingle Bell Rock') and Burl Ives ('A Holly Jolly Christmas').
