The Eagles unseated Underwood's "Carnival Ride," which fell to second. Josh Turner debuted in third with "Everything is Fine." Robert Plant and Alison Krauss's "Raising Sand" collaboration" was fourth, down two, while Rascal Flatts was down one to fifth with "Still Feels Good."

Larry the Cable Guy debuted in 20th with "Christmastime in Larryland." Turner's previous CD, "Your Man," was the biggest mover, up 10 to 24th.

On the overall top 200 chart, Underwood was third after being first last week, Turner 5th , Plant/Krauss 6th and Rascal Flatts 10th.
