– 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.
