Of Underwood's eight official country singles, all but one - Don't Forget to Remember Me - reached the top slot. Brad Paisley and Keith Urban earned their 20th and 18th top 10 single, respectively, as their duet Start a Band jumped from 13th to 10th.
Hank Williams III debuted in 18th in the top 200 of all albums sold with "Damn Right Rebel Proud" (Curb) selling 20,000 units. Sugarland was 19th with "Love on the Inside." Lee Ann Womack started in 23rd with "Call Me Crazy," selling 17,000.
