– Reba McEntire's religious disc, "Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Love," will remain atop the Billboard Country and Christian/Gospel charts for a second consecutive week when the charts are released later this week.

The release features McEntire's mother, her sisters, daughter-in-law Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood and The Isaacs.
McEntire resumes her Vegas residency with Brooks & Dunn tomorrow.
