    I don’t know how many weeks this has been, but funny–I think “It Won’t Be the Last” WAS the last #1 anything that Cyrus ever had.

    Cyrus has one more week (8/7) at number one with his sophomore album. And you’re right, he never placed another album or song at the top. His first two albums and his debut single went number one, but there are a handful of top 10 single releases afterwards. Cyrus’ career cooled off as quickly as it heated up in the early 1990s.

      I never figured out why after this album, radio didn’t give his music a chance at all. I listened to a major-market country station and after “Storm In the Heartland” failed, they didn’t play is new singles. I mean, literally–They did not make the mysterious “playlist.”
