Country Countdown: Kenny Chesney Claims 22nd No. 1

Meanwhile, Big Moves By Little Big Town, Toby Keith, Love & Theft

High atop Country Songs, Kenny Chesney claims his 22nd leader with "Come Over," the second radio single and first No. 1 from his "Welcome to the Fishbowl" album.

Chesney most recently dominated the chart with "Reality," which crowned the March 17 list, then peaked at No. 11 with "Feel Like a Rock Star" (with Tim McGraw), the lead track from "Fishbowl." The gold-plus-selling "Come Over" ranks at No. 4 with 53,000 downloads in its 11th week on Country Digital Songs.

Elsewhere in the top 10 on Country Songs, Little Big Town celebrates its first top 10 in two years, as "Pontoon" flies 13-9 in its 13th chart week. The summertime hit is the quartet's fourth top 10 on the radio tally, and moves 95,000 downloads in its 10th week on the digital chart. Concurrently on the radio list, Keith Urban counts his 28th career top 10 with "For You," which steps 11-10. The song is from "Act of Valor: The Album," No. 56 on Country Albums.

Love & Theft Catch Fire With 'Angel Eyes'

A littler lower on Country Songs, Clear Channel Media & Entertainment's Artist Integration Program (hourly play on July 24) helps push Toby Keith's "I Like Girls That Drink Beer," to his second-best career start at No. 28. The Oklahoman's highest debut was noted when "Stays In Mexico" bowed at No. 27 on the chart dated Aug. 14, 2004. The new track also opens with 22,000 downloads at No. 19 on Country Digital Songs -- it introduces the artist's next album, which hasn't yet been scheduled or titled. The digital scorecard is topped for a second week by Jason Aldean's "Take a Little Ride," with 96,000 sold.

Love And Theft posts its second top 10 start on Country Albums with a self-titled collection that arrives at No. 4 with 14,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The trio-turned-duo included Stephen Barker Liles, Eric Gunderson and Brian Bandas when it peaked on opening week at No. 10 with World Wide Open three years ago, followed by Bandas' departure from the group last year. The remaining twosome ranks at No. 3 on Hot Country Songs with "Angel Eyes," the lead single from Love And Theft.
