Top 10 Country Singles
Kenny Chesney's "Living in Fast Forward" continues to hold onto the top spot on the charts this week, and is still going strong. I'm having a difficult time deciding which song will be No. 1 next week, as Rascal Flatts are really moving up strongly. I think I'm going to stay with Kenny for a third week next week, however. At No. 2 is Keith Urban's "Tonight I Wanna Cry," followed by Rascal Flatts' "What Hurts the Most," Josh Turner's "Your Man," and Montgomery Gentry's "She Don't Tell Me To." At No. 6 is Bon Jovi along with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles song "Who Says You Can't Go Home," moving up two spots, followed by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton's "When I Get Where I'm Going," which drops two to No. 7 this week. Blake Shelton moves up one with "Nobody But Me," followed by Carrie Underwood's "Jesus, Take The Wheel" at No. 9, and Toby Keith's "Get Drunk and Be Somebody" at No. 10.

Moving Up at the Speed of Light
There's nothing out and out smoking up the charts, but Carrie Underwood's "Don't Forget To Remember Me" is moving the fastest, from No. 54 last week to No. 46 this week. Two songs tied for second place; "Yee-Haw" from Jake Owen, moves from No. 51 to No. 44, and Megan Mullins' "Ain't What It Used To Be" moves from No. 52 to No. 45.

The Latest Tunes To Hit The Air Waves
Sugarland's "Down In Mississippi (Up To No Good)" snags the top debut this week, bowing in at No. 43. The Lost Trailers' "Chicken Fried" comes in at No. 53, but I was told this single was pulled and they will release "Call Me Crazy" next week, which is a smash! The Dixie Chicks debut single, "Not Ready To Make Nice," from their Taking The Long Way album debuts at No. 54, while Ashley Monroe's "Satisfied" comes in at No. 57. Keep your ears out for this young lady. She's got a great sound, and I think she's someone we're going to hear a lot more from in the future.

Top 10 Country Album Charts
Carrie Underwood regains the No. 1 Spot on the Album charts this week, with Some Hearts, followed closely by the Johnny Cash release The Legend Of Johnny Cash, and the soundtrack to the Johnny Cash Biopic Walk the Line, which moves up one to No. 3 this week. Alan Jackson's Precious Memories drops to No. 4, followed by Josh Turner's Your Man. Rascal Flatts Feels Like Today remains at No. 6, and Van Morrison's Pay The Devil debuts at No. 7 with 32,000 copies sold. Keith Urban's Be Here remains at No. 8, while Trace Adkins' Songs About Me drops two to No. 9. Debuting at No. 10 is The Little Willies self-titled release.

Whats New on the Album Charts This Week?
As mentioned, we have Van Morrison's Pay the Devil and The Little Willies self-titled albums debuting in the Top 10. Elsewhere on the chart, Trent Tomlinson's Country Is My Rock debuted at No. 20, and Kris Kristofferson's This Old Road debuted at No. 36.
