If you are looking to add to your album/CD/iTunes collection, here are Billboard's Top 5 country albums of the week that will certainly enhance your collection and listening experience.  Topping the charts this week is Lionel Richie's "Tuskegee", which is basically a duets album of all of Lionel's hits.  I have a copy of the disc and I really enjoy the whole thing.  I'm sure you will too.  One of my favorite tracks is "Hello" with Jennifer Nettles.  In at #2 is......Luke Bryan's "Tailgates & Tanlines"- This album was praised by many country artists in the biz.  I also feel that this album is a must have for anyone's collection.  Luke Bryan is slowly becoming one of the big stars in country music and I heard he has plans of headlining in 2013.  Currently he's on tour with Jason Aldean....and they come to town August 25th.

#3- Scotty McCreery's "Clear As Day" is holding the 3 spot.  This winner of American Idol was hot out of the gate.  He had a huge opening week in album sales and still holds strong in the Top 5.  Scotty, is often criticized for sounding too much like Josh Turner, but a person really can't help how they sound, right??

#4- Jason Aldean's "My Kinda Party" is still in the Top 5.  This album has soo many great hits, you can't go wrong.  He's releases about 5 songs off of this album, to radio.  This CD is also a must have!

#5- Eric Church's "Chief"- Another great album to have.  It's not that same old cookie cutter country music that you are used to hearing.  It's fresh and it's a good prepper for when you go to the Taste of Country this year.  Get it, listen to it and you'll be able to sing along with all of Eric's tunes.
