    The abovementioned Garth Brooks holds the record -- no pun intended -- for the most country albums (nine) to reach number one on Billboard's all-genre Top 200 album chart. The female record-holders are Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, Linda Ronstadt and Taylor Swift, each with three chart-topping country albums -- at least until this week. Underwood's new CD just debuted at number one, becoming her fourth chart-topping country album. She's certainly come a long way since winning on American Idol in 2005!

    Loretta Lynn has had 38 top-ten country hits and 11 number ones. Of her duets with Conway Twitty, 12 were top-ten country hits and five went to number one. Who could have imagined that a "coal miner's daughter" born in a log cabin in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, would turn out to be so successful?

    She suffered a stroke, a fall and a fractured hip. She's forced to use a walker and sometimes a wheelchair. She stopped touring but she didn't stop recording. Her new CD, Wouldn't It Be Great, was released September 28. It's her 42nd solo album.
