– The news was all Taylor Swift this week as she had the biggest selling release in the country by far with Speak Now,
which sold almost 1.05 million units, for the week ending Nov. 13 on the Billboard charts. On the country song chart, Darius Rucker stayed first with Come Back Song./I>
But Swift is right behind Rucker on the song chart with Mine at five, up two. Sugarland remained third with Stuck Like Glue, and Zac Brown Band featuring Alan Jackson was fourth, down two with As She's Walking Away. Brad Paisley climbed two spots to fifth with Anything Like Me. Reba McEntire made it into the top 10, at 10, with Turn on the Radio.
The biggest mover by far was Kenny Chesney with Somewhere With You, up 12 to 23 in its second week on the chart.
On the album chart, Swift moved past Sugarland's "The Incredible Machine," which fell to second. Rucker was third with "Charleston, SC 1966." The Band Perry was fourth with its self-titled debut. Chesney stood at fifth with "Hemingway's Whiskey."
The soundtrack to "Country Strong," the movie with Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw, debuted in 17th. "The Essential Dixie Chicks," which has no new songs, debuted in 40th.
On the bluegrass chart, Dierks Bentley once again was first with "Up on the Ridge." The Isaacs were second with "Christmas."
On the overall top 200, Sugarland was 2nd, Rucker 9th, The Band Perry 11th, Chesney 12th and Zac Brown Band 13th.
