SPIN ZONE
Taylor Swift’s third album Speak Now is flying off shelves and headed toward a monster sales week, while its first single “Mine” has become the new CountryBreakout Chart No. 1 song. It is followed by The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young,” which moves up to No. 2, and “As She’s Walking Away” by Zac Brown Band with Alan Jackson at No. 3. Reba’s “Turn On The Radio” and Brad Paisley’s “Anything Like Me” also get a little push to fill out the Top 5.

Movement is still a little slow, with Luke Bryan’s “Someone Else Calling You Baby” the only new song in the Top 10 at No. 9 and Toby Keith’s “Bullets In The Gun” the only new entry in the Top 20 at No. 18. Two tracks outpacing much of the Top 40 are Billy Currington’s “Let Me Down Easy” which moves up to No. 31 and Kenny Chesney’s “Somewhere To You” which makes a giant leap to No. 39 ahead of its Nov. 8 add date.

Three new songs have joined the final three spots of the chart. Josh Turner’s “I Wouldn’t Be A Man” leads the bunch at No. 78, and he’s followed by Gwyneth Paltrow’s debut “Country Strong” at No. 79. Curb artist Ashley Gearing gets the last spot “What Do You Think About Us.”
