NASHVILLELonestar dethrones Lee Ann Womack as their "What About Now" lands atop the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, reflecting airplay at country radio stations.

"What About Now" (RealAudio excerpt) is Lonestar's third #1 single from their Lonely Grill album. In knocking Womack's "I Hope You Dance" out of the #1 slot after five consecutive weeks, Lonestar denied Womack the chance of tying Faith Hill's record for a female country singer's consecutive weeks at #1, which Hill set with "Breathe."

"I Hope You Dance" sits at #2, followed by Rascal Flatts' "Prayin' for Daylight" at #3, which moves up from #4. Alan Jackson's "It Must Be Love" drops from #3 to #4, while Jo Dee Messina's "That's the Way" climbs from #7 to #5. Eric Heatherly's "Flowers On The Wall" remains at #6, Reba McEntire's "I'll Be" drops from #5 to #7, and SHeDAISY's "I Will ... But" climbs from #10 to #8, and Chad Brock's "Yes!" drops from #8 to #9. Keith Urban's "Your Everything" moves from #12 to #10.

Billboard's "Airpower" honor this week goes to LeAnn Rimes' "I Need You" for its move from #20 to #18. The "Hot Shot Debut" nod goes to Sons of the Desert's "Everybody's Gotta Grow Up Sometime," which weighs in at #63. Jamie O'Neal's "There Is No Arizona" debuts at #69 and Rascal Flatts' "This Everyday Love" comes in at #72.
