Underwood, Brooks again top charts

Thursday, January 15, 2015 – Carrie Underwood remained first on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week ending Jan. 24 with "Something in the Water," while Garth Brooks was first again on the Top Country Albums chart with "Man Against Machine."

Brooks jumped from fifth to first with last week's chart topper, Jason Aldean's "Old Boots, New Dirt," dropping to second. Sam Hunt was third with "Montevallo." Underwood was fourth with "Greatest Hits: Decade #1." Florida Georgia Line's "Anything Goes" placed fifth.

Lady Antebellum was up from 16 to 12 with "747." Chase Rice was at 16, up 3, with "Ignite the Night." Alabama was at 24 with "Angels Among Us; Hymns & Gospel Favorites," up 3.

On the songs chart, Tim McGraw was again second with "Shotgun Rider," Eric Church third with "Talladega," Luke Bryan fourth with "I See You" and Florida Georgia Line fifth with "Sun Daze."

Kenny Chesney was eighth, up three, with "Til It's Gone." Thomas Rhett's "Make Me Wanna" was one back, also up three. Hunt was a big climber with his new single "Take Your Time," which jumped 7 to 15. Randy Houser stood at 16 with "Like a Cowboy," up 4. Cole Swindell was up 7 to 19 with "Ain't Worth the Whiskey."

Chase Bryant was at 21 with "Take It On Back," up 4. Dierks Bentley's "Say You Do" closed out the top 25, up 3.

Nickel Creek assume the top spot again on the Bluegrass Albums chart with "A Dotted Line," switching spots with Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn's self-titled release, which was second. The Earls of Leicester, which includes Jerry Douglas, was third with its self-titled CD. Alan Jackson was fourth with "The Bluegrass Album" and Greensky Bluegrass fifth with "If Sorrows Swim."

On the overall top 200 albums chart, Hunt was 12th, Underwood 14th, Aldean 17th, Florida Georgia Line 21st and Brooks 25th. Brooks was not the leading country disc on the Top 200 because the country and Top 200 charts use different parameters.

CD review - My Savior Carrie Underwood's gospel music album may not be traditional in the sense that she sings these songs the same way she heard them as a child growing up. However, on the traditional/modern country music spectrum, this album leans closer to traditional country music than just about anything Underwood's recorded. Underwood always sings well, no matter how her songs are arranged, but it's a true treat to hear that voice without much of the big production that usually accompanies it. ...
CD review - My Gift It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree. The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
CD review - Cry Pretty Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies. This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
