Adele's '21' tops the Top 200 Billboard Charts this week with sales of 95,144 and total sales of 6.14 million. It’s now had its 17th week at No. 1 position making it the Biggest #1 since the soundtrack 'BODYGUARD' which enjoyed a 20-week run at No. 1 on the chart (May 29, 1993) . Speaking of soundtrack albums The Joyful Noise featuring Dolly Parton moved up  #21 to #12 with a sales increase of 23% maintaining its place as #1 soundtrack for the second week and is having similar rewards to the 2011 Country Strong release which was embraced by country music fans.

For the first time since November 2, 2011 with sales of 17,153 copies Toby Keith's CLANCY'S TAVERN with a jump from #22 to #8 moves ahead of Lady Antebellum’s Own The Night (13832 copies sold, 13% drop) and Luke Bryan ‘s #3 album TAILGATES & TANLINES (13767 sales this week).  It's now become Keith's first album to spend more than one week at #1 on the Billboard Country album chart since HONKYTONK UNIVERSITY topped the chart for seven weeks back in 2005. The album's renaissance is due to the success of his Glee-boosted single "Red Solo Cup," which now stands at #15 on the Hot 100 and is this weeks Top Country Hot Digital download making it his highest-charting single in a Hot 100 career since 1993. It also benefitted by the stack-it-high-sell-it-cheap marketing gaining a 27% sales increase with physical CD priced for just $4.99 at Target stores and discounted on Amazon last week.
Also priced at $4.99 last week was George Strait's "Icon" Greatest hits going up from #118-#66 with 6,194 fans taking advantage, creating a 63% sales boost.

The Band Perry’s single With “All Your Life” is #4 on the Hot Country charts and the self-titled album also sits at #4 on the Billboard Country album selling another 12,206 copies. Jason Aldean’s MY KINDA PARTY stands at #5 shifting another 11899 copies taking it over the 2.3 million marker.

Scotty McCreery with 10,620 fans taking it home CLEAR AS DAY bagged a 7% sales increase, while his single “The Trouble With Girls” gains ground on the singles chart. Taylor Swift’s Speak Now gained 37% at retail this week with sales  at 9,495 and its now 47k short of the 4-million sold mark.

It is highly likely that Tim McGraw will debut at #1 next week with his new album EMOTIONAL TRAFFIC whilst his NUMBER ONE HITS sells 8,983 with a #8 chart position and with a tally of 545k, and the RIAA’s measurement of counting double albums twice per sale it gains Platinum status.

Martina McBride is now onto a new label in Republic Nashville and with the single “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” at #9 she’s back in the Top 10 for the first time since “Anyway” from 2007.  He latest release on old label RCA Nashville’s HITS AND MORE compilation debuted this week at #44 on the Top 200 Albums chart with sales of 7,497. As a expanded version of her 2001 Greatest Hits completists will be adding it to their collection but fans may be swayed to sample and download it’s 3 new song additions.  her ce and into our notables section as this week’s highest (and only) album debut. The record features 15 of her biggest hits and a couple un-released singles.

The Pistol Annies album with sales of 4,927 and a #80 position is less than a 1000 copies from reaching 250K.
