            Taylor Swift's CD Continues Reign

Montgomery GentryWhile Taylor Swift continues to sit 
atop the Billboard country albums chart this week, pre-
sumably texting friends and looking over her shoulder 
for some really serious competition, Montgomery Gentry 
leapfrogs Blake Shelton to seize the summit of the songs 

Considerably farther down the mountain, we spy four new 
albums and two fresh tunes.

That's the big picture. Here's the microscopic one: In 
spite of the several contenders who've had a No. 1 
album for a week or so, the traction of Swift's epony-
mous debut package just won't relax. During the 88 weeks 
it's been out, the album has held the No. 1 niche for 22, 
a full quarter of its long chart life. Talk about a sunny 

Veteran road warriors Montgomery Gentry can do some 
bragging, too. After keeping a relatively low profile 
the last few months, the duo has roared back with "Back 
When I Knew It All," the title cut from their new album. 
Two weeks ago, the song was at No. 6. Last week, it 
sprang to No. 3. Now this week it's crowing on top of 
the barn.

The new albums are Reckless Kelly's Bulletproof, the 
week's highest debut at No. 22; Mark Chesnutt's Rollin' 
With the Flow (No. 35); the multi-artist collection 
Patriotic Country, Vol. 3 (No. 37); and The Road Hammers' 
Blood, Sweat & Steel (No. 50).

Returning albums are Tim McGraw: Collector's Edition 
(No. 70); Trisha Yearwood's Greatest Hits (No. 71); and 
Ronnie Milsap's 16 Biggest Hits (No. 72).

Songs cropping up for the first time are Toby Keith's 
"She Never Cried In Front Of Me" (No. 55) and Jewel's "I 
Do" (No. 60). The Zac Brown Band's "Chicken Fried" re-
enters at No. 56.

Brad Paisley's never-say-die single, "Waitin' on a 
Woman," persists in bounding up the charts, this week 
leaping from No. 34 to No. 26. It came on just three 
weeks ago at No. 51.

Trailing Swift's album in the No. 2 to No. 5 spots, 
respectively, are Keith's 35 Biggest Hits, Carrie 
Underwood's Carnival Ride, Jewel's Perfectly Clear 
and Sugarland's Enjoy the Ride.

The remaining Top 5 songs, in the same order, are 
Shelton's "Home" (in its second week at No. 2), Kenny 
Chesney's "Better as a Memory" (coming off two weeks 
at No. 1), Alan Jackson's "Good Time" and Dierks 
Bentley's "Trying to Stop Your Leaving."
