– Tim McGraw debuted in first on the Billboard country album chart with "Southern Voice" for the week ending Nov. 7 with Taylor Swift's "Fearless" slipping to second. McGraw was second on the overall top 200 chart with "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" soundtrack leading the way. Zac Brown Band took over the number one spot on the country song chart with Toes,
displacing Keith Urban's Only You Can Love Me This Way,
which fell to third.
On the album chart, Zac Brown Band remained third with "The Foundation." Toby Keith's "American Ride" was fourth down two, while Miranda Lambert's third CD, "Revolution," was down one to fifth.
Lyle Lovett debuted in eighth with "Natural Forces." Reba McEntire was at 13, up 3, with "Keep On Loving You." The female duo Bomshel debuted at 24 with "Fight Like a Girl." The biggest mover by far was McGraw's "Greatest Hits 3," which skyrocketed from 65 to 35. McGraw, however, chastised his label, Curb, for having released the disc in the first place. The compilation disc, "NOW That's What I Call a Country Christmas," was up from 45 to 38.
On the song chart, Brad Paisley moved up two to second with Welcome to the Future. Chris Young's former number one, Getting' You Home, was down one to fourth. Carrie Underwood remained fifth with Cowboy Casanova. Swift broke into the top 10 with Fifteen up 1 to 10th.
Tim McGraw moved up from 18 to 16 with the title track of his new CD Southern Voice. George Strait's title track,Twang, was a big mover, going from 30 to 24. The remainder of the top 30 showed very little movement.
On the overall top 200 album chart, Swift was 7, Zac Brown Band 11, Keith 18 and Lambert 22nd.
