CHART NOTES:

Happy Holidays!

Lady GaGa holds strong at #1 for a 4th consecutive week with her smash hit, "Bad Romance". The song is off her album The Fame Monster, a current hot seller.

Country group Lady Antebellum gains momentum this week with "Need You Now". The huge crossover hit moves up 4 points from #8 to #4 this week. Also breaking into the top 5 is Rihanna and her single "Russian Roulette" moving up 1 from #6 to #5.

Flyleaf and Norah Jones break into the top 10 with their hits "Again" @ #10 and "Chasing Pirates" @ #11.

Carrie Underwood
's latest single "Cowboy Cassanova" is a late arrival to my personal chart. It is a great rockin' uptempo contemporary country song.

Carrie Underwood was the big winner of the 2005 season of American Idol. Today she has 3 top hit albums, several number 1 hit records including "Jesus Take the Wheel", "All American Girl" and "Before He Cheats".

Shinedown's rocker "If You Only Knew" debuts at #20. Their former #1 track "Second Chance" fell off the Weekly Top 20 this week after a long chart run.
