LADY ANTEBELLUM: They're Ba-ack!
After dropping to number-four last week, Lady Antebellum's Need You Now is once again the best-selling country album in the nation, according to the latest SoundScan figures. And though we predicted the number-two spot would go back to Zac Brown Band, Ryan Bingham, who performed two songs for the Crazy Heart soundtrack, snatched the second seat with his Junky Star. Zac's The Foundation takes number-three.
Little Big Town's The Reason Why, which debuted last week at number-one, drops to number-four and Trace Adkins' Cowboy's Back in Town rounds out the Top 5.
JAMES OTTO: In the Hospital
New dad James Otto has been hospitalized with stomach pains. In a letter on his website, James wrote, "I have been feeling badly on and off for a while now but didn't think it was serious. Plus, I may have been a bit distracted by all the excitement of baby Ava's arrival! I'll be down for a few days but hope to be back in action and on the road again soon." James has cancelled two performances -- Friday in Clarksville, Tennessee and Saturday in Berea, Ohio.
