Sugarland is sweet on Billboard 200

Miley Cyrus trades places with the country act

Disney wunderkind Miley Cyrus' reign atop the Billboard 200 ends abruptly after one week as country duo Sugarland outsold her by 8,000 units to claim its first No. 1.

Sugarland took the unusual step of releasing the deluxe edition of "Love on the Inside" -- featuring five extra songs -- a week before the standard version arrived. Sales of both versions are merged together in Nielsen SoundScan's database and on Billboard's charts.

Meanwhile, Cyrus' "Breakout" sees a 56% sales drop from its debut week to land at No. 2 in an otherwise uneventful frame on the big chart.

Christian rock band Third Day has its best chart showing and biggest sales week with "Revelation," which begat a No. 6 bow. And "Kidz Bop 14," the latest kid-friendly reworking of recent pop hits, arrives at No. 8 -- marking the eighth consecutive top 10 debut for the series.

Elsewhere, Rick Springfield and Alice Cooper see their highest-charting discs since 1985 and 1991, respectively.

Billboard's Keith Caulfield contributed to this report.
