Billboard's Top Ten Albums

Here's the latest Top 10 from Billboard during another super-slow week. I know it's hot, but album sales for the entire chart of less than 9 million copies is the lowest since January of '94.

1. Various Artists -- Now 22
2.Los Lonely Boys -- Sacred
3. Rodney Atkins -- If Yuo're Going Through Hell
4. Gnarls Barkley -- St. Elsewhere
5. Soundtrack -- High School Musical
6. Rascal Flatts -- Me and My Gang
7. Nelly Furtado -- Loose
8. Rihanna
9. The Dixie Chicks -- Taking The Long Way
10. The Pussycat Dolls

And apparently the New York Times doesn't have much pull with country music fans. Out of nowhere, they decided to do a big profile on newcomer Eric Church's album "Sinners Like Me." But the extra attention didn't goose sales much: he sold 24,000 copies and debuted at #29.
