Shelton registers chart double

Thursday, August 19, 2010 – Blake Shelton scored a chart double by leading both the Billboard song and album chart with All About Tonight, - that's both the name of the song and EP. Lady Antebellum had long held the top spot on the album chart with "Need You Now," which is now second for the week ending Aug. 28.

Shelton took over the song chart top spot from Zac Brown Band and Free, which slipped to third. Keith Urban remained second with I'm In. Billy Currington moved up from seven to fourth with Pretty Good at Drinkin' Beer. Lee Brice held fifth with Love Like Crazy.

Kenny Chesney broke into the top 10, up 2 to ninth, with The Boys of Fall. The leading biggest mover was Taylor Swift and her new single, Mine, which skyrocketed from 26 to 17 in its second week out. But Rascal Flatts was close behind, at 18, also up 9, with Why Wait.

Zac Brown Band was third with "The Foundation." Miranda Lambert stayed fourth with "Revolution." Jerrod Niemann's "Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury" was fifth.

Josh Turner's "Haywire" was up 3 to 18. Shelton's previous EP, "Hillbilly Bone," which came out in March, also had a resurgence, going from 34 to 27. Roseanne Cash was by far the biggest mover. Her disc," The List" moved from 68 to 28.

Dierks Bentley once again was first on the bluegrass chart with "Up on the Ridge." The Punch Brothers were second with "Antifogmatic."

On the overall top 200 chart, Shelton was 6th, Lady A 12th, Zac Brown Band 14th, Lambert 22nd and Niemann 33rd.
