Another week at the top for the Dixie Chicks

The Dixie Chicks’ new album, Taking the Long Way, took the #1 spot in the overall U.S. market once again last week. Of course, this means that the Chicks remain at the top of the country sales chart as well!

With a “respectable” sales drop of 48 percent, the Chicks managed to sell 271,000 copies of the CD. While at first glance the 48 percent drop in sales from the first week to the second week sounds disappointing, the decline is one of the four smallest declines for #1 albums so far this year.

It should be noted that it was a “slow week” for new album releases, which helped the Chicks maintain the #1 spot. Also, I’d really like to see the Chicks have a hit single, which would effectively guarantee a consistent presence near the top of the charts. Their newest single, “Voice Inside My Head”, is my second favorite song on the album, but, as I mentioned before, “The Long Way Around” is a hit waiting to happen (see previous post).
