LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Kid Rock's new CD, "Rock N Roll Jesus," is No. 1 on the U.S. album charts, Billboard.com reported Wednesday.

This marks the first time the country-rock artist has topped The Billboard 200.

Last week's No. 1, Bruce Springsteen's "Magic," comes in at No. 2, while Rascal Flatts' "Still Feels Good" -- another former No. 1 album -- falls to third place this week.

LeAnn Rimes' "Family" takes the No. 4 spot, while matchbox twenty's "Exile on Mainstream" lands at No. 5.

Rounding out the top 10 are Kanye West's "Graduation" at No. 6; Reba McEntire's "Reba Duets" at No. 7; Sara Evans' "Greatest Hits" at No. 8; Disney's "High School Musical 2" soundtrack at No. 9; and Josh Groban's holiday album "Noel" at No. 10.

Album sales were down 6.3 percent from last week and 17.4 percent from the same week in 2006, Billboard.com said.
