– Gretchen Wilson hit the top of the Billboard country CD charts for the week ending June 2 with "One of the Boys," Selling about 75,000 units, the disc was also the fifth best selling CD of any genre. Wilson claimed the number one position from Carrie Underwood's "Some Hearts," which fell to second.
On the single chart, Billy Currington remained first with "Good Direction" for the second straight week.
Taylor Swift's self-titled debut was third on the album chart with Tim McGraw's "Let It Go" fourth. Rascal Flatts remained fifth with "Me And My Gang."
The biggest mover was George Strait's "It Just Comes Natural," probably a result of winning several awards at the Academy of Country Music festivities earlier this month. Rodney Atkins also benefited with "If You're Going Through Hell," up 6 to 17. Little Big town's "The Road to Here" was up 8 to 21st.
On the song chart, Emerson Drive was up one to the second spot with "Moments." Toby Keith was up one to third with "High Maintenance Woman," while Brad Paisley's "Ticks" was in fourth, up two. Alan Jackson was fifth with "A Woman's Love," also up two. Tracey Lawrence's "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" was in sixth, up a few spots.
There was not a lot of movement on the song chart, but Tim McGraw's duet with Faith Hill "I Need You" was up 4 to 17th. Breaking into the top 25 were newcomers Luke Bryan's "All My Friends Say," at 24th, up 2, and Cole Deggs And the Lonesome's "I Got More" at 25th, up 3.
On the overall top 200 CD chart, Underwood was 11th, Swift 13th, McGraw 17th and Rascal Flatts 19th.
