Step aside, Carrie Underwood. At least that’s what Alan Jackson’s new album, Thirty Miles West, said to this week to Underwood’s Blown Away on the Billboard Country Albums chart. Jackson’s album took the top spot, pushing Blown Away down a notch to Number Two.
It’s a great year for Carrie Underwood, whose new album Blown Away has been Number One on the charts four weeks in a row so far.
Apparently all those country songs about four-wheelers and pickups weren’t kidding: there is “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck.”
Behind the Scenes, Billy Currington, Just For You, Lionel Richie, duets, Tuskegee, platinum, Number One
“I got this song for you brother, but now do we have the time to do it.” After negotiating schedules so Lionel Richie and Billy Currington could get into the studio at the same time (“We’ve been dancing this dance for the longest time”), their efforts finally paid off.
Carrie Underwood’s fourth album, Blown Away, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 album chart this week at number one, with sales of more than 267,000.
