Once again the Country Albums chart leader is compilation record ‘The Country Album’, with other greatest hits collections filling up the chart. From Shania Twain’s ‘Greatest Hits’ at #10, ‘The Legend of Johnny Cash’ at #11, and ‘Country – 101 All-Time Greats’ at #12, to Jim Reeves’ ‘120 Greatest Hits – The Very Best of’ at #15, ‘The Very Best of Dolly Parton’ at #16, and John Denver’s ‘The Ultimate Collection’ at #19, clearly fans are lapping this stuff up. What’s more, ‘Glen Campbell’s 20 Golden Greats’ occupies #22, and ‘The Essential Kris Kristofferson’ moves up to #23. Elsewhere, Lucinda Williams’ brand new album ‘The Ghosts of Highway 20’ delivers an impressive #2 spot, followed by Shania Twain’s Come On Over’ at #3 and Sam Hunt’s ‘Montevallo’ at #4.

The Shires retain their popularity, notching #5 and #13 for their album ‘Brave’, while Taylor Swift places ‘Speak Now (Bonus Track Version)’ at #9, ‘Red’ at #14, and ‘Fearless (Platinum Edition)’ at #18. We also have entries from Kacey Musgraves at #20 (‘Same Trailer Different Park’) and #21 (‘Pageant Material’), alongside new records from US favourites Chris Stapleton (‘Traveller’), Thomas Rhett (‘Tangled Up’), Carrie Underwood (‘Storyteller’) and Chris Young (‘I’m Comin’ Over’) at #6, #7, #8 and #25 respectively. Also on the chart this week are Lady Antebellum’s ‘Own The Night’ at #17 and Marty Mone’s ‘Hit The Diff’ at #24.

Sam Hunt takes another week at #1 on Country Songs with ‘Take Your Time’, while ‘Break Up In A Small Town’ comes in at #19 and ‘House Party’ sits at #21. Thomas Rhett picks up a couple of high-charting positions, including #2 with ‘Crash And Burn’ and #5 with ‘Die A Happy Man’, followed by Lady Antebellum’s ‘Need You Now’ at #4 and a strong showing from Shania Twain’s back catalogue. Her highest spot this week is ‘That Don’t Impress Me Much’ at #3 (and #9), while ‘You’re Still The One’, and ‘Man! I Feel Like A Woman’ also sit inside the top 25. Taylor Swift meanwhile holds onto a total of six entries, while Dolly Parton spread out with three of her career hits. Carrie Underwood’s highest position this week is ‘Before He Cheats’ at #13 while Chris Stapleton follows with ‘Tennessee Whiskey’ at #14, and Brandy Clark makes her debut with ‘Girl Next Door’ at #22.

That’s it for this week; come back next Friday for another iTunes UK roundup!
