MORE THAN 'ENOUGH': The Black Eyed Peas continue another notable Hot 100 streak.
"Just Can't Get Enough" zooms 66-38 to become the quartet's 14th consecutive top 40 Hot 100 hit, marking the longest streak by a group since the Eagles also linked 14 in 1975-99.
The Black Eyed Peas fell shy of the top 40 with their first chart entry, "Request Line," featuring Macy Gray. The song stopped at No. 63 in 2001.
The group's next Hot 100 appearance, the No. 8-peaking "Where Is the Love?," began its active streak of 14 top 40 titles, a run that includes nine top 10s and three No. 1s: "Boom Boom Pow," "I Gotta Feeling" and "Imma Be."
Wings hold the record among groups, as all 23 of their chart entries reached the top 40 in 1972-80.
Elton John leads all artists with 36 consecutive top 40 hits, from "Rocket Man" (No. 6) in 1972 through "Nikita" (No. 7) in 1986.
His streak would have reached an even, and fitting, 40 had "Tiny Dancer" risen at least one notch higher than its No. 41 peak prior to "Rocket Man"; the song followed John's first three top 40 hits: "Your Song" (No. 8), "Friends" (No. 34) and "Levon" (No. 24).
Dating to the adoption of Nielsen BDS data on Country Songs the week of Jan. 20, 1990, Sweeney's odyssey to the top 10 is the longest for any solo female artist's first chart entry. She passes Kellie Coffey's "When You Lie Next to Me," which reached the top tier in its 28th frame in June 2002.
Taylor Swift's "Tim McGraw" now places third in that span, having taken 25 weeks to reach the top 10 in 2006.
"From a Table Away" is additionally the highest-ranking debut Country Songs entry by a female soloist since "Tim McGraw" peaked at No. 6 in January 2007.
How rare a feat is it for a core rock act to reign atop the list? It could be argued that Lewis is the first pure rock artist to achieve the feat since Country Albums premiered the week of Jan. 11, 1964.
Another artist whose middle name was Aaron - Elvis Presley - posted seven No. 1s on Country Albums between 1973 and 2002, although the King of Rock & Roll's discography spans various genres, from rock and pop to country, gospel and R&B.
Of course, Lewis doesn't command the chart with an album featuring Staind's signature hard rock. "Town Line" sports five southern rock-leaning country songs.
"When you look at the songs in the past that I have sat down and written on an acoustic guitar - 'Outside,' 'It's Been Awhile,' 'So Far Away' - if I had a country band behind me to put down country accompaniments, that would have worked, too," Lewis told Billboard.com last year.
"It just seems like being where I am, country was kind of the next step. It made the most sense."
