TOP OF THE CHARTS: Toby Keith
Toby Keith's Bullets In the Gun debuted at number-one on both country and overall album charts. That bumps Kenny Chesney's Hemingway's Whiskey to number-two on both charts and Zac Brown Band's You Get What You Give to three on the country chart (five overall).
However, Jamey Johnson managed to eek out a few more sales than Billy Currington this week which allowed his Guitar Song to leap frog Billy's Enjoy Yourself, placing them at four and five respectively.
Keith Urban was thrilled to hear that Alan Jackson will be touring in homeland of Australia next year. He says traditional country is huge there and he knows that Alan will find that the audiences will know every word to his songs. He tells us, "They love that kind of music, so they will just eat him up ... it was no surprise to me when his entire tour sold out."
Kenny Chesney shot the video for "Seven Days" in the coastal village of Port Clyde, Maine, earlier this week. Is this a trend? Taylor Swift also shot the video for "Mine" in Maine.
