Comments

There's somethin' 'bout Kip Moore that country listeners dig. His anthemic "Somethin' 'Bout a Truck" is #1 for a second week. Jason Aldean's "Fly Over States," at #2 last week, makes a long descent to #6. That leaves room for the Zac Brown Band's "No Hurry" to swoop into the the runner-up position, alongside Eric Church's "Springsteen" at #3. Kenny Chesney's new single from his upcoming album Welcome to the Fishbowl makes a double-digit climb to #16.

  5. Jason Aldean - My Kinda Party

Comments

Did someone put the top 5 on "repeat"? No, that's just Carrie Underwood, who tops the album charts for the fourth time in a row with Blown Away. Alongside Lionel Richie's Tuskegee at #2, it's set to be one of the top country albums of 2012. Elsewhere, Willie Nelson's Heroes drops from #4 to #9 and Eric Church fills in the gap at #4. Jason Aldean's indomitable My Kinda Party follows lock-step at #5. Even though June is set to be a killer month for country releases, this week was rather low in fresh material. One notable release, however, came from Kevin Costner (yes, that Kevin Costner), whose fourth album with Modern West made a respectable debut at #38.

Comments

Carrie Underwood's "Good Girl" breaks into the teens this week, climbing up five slots to #18. Everyone else follows in line behind her in the 20s: Kip, Zac, Eric, and Luke. (They've been here so long, we're on a first name basis.) Dierks -- that is, Bentley -- moves up with his country-rocker "5-1-5-0," and Chesney makes his radio chart debut with "Come Over" at #66.
