The Dixie Chicks turned their Grammy triumph into a huge gain on the Canadian album charts this week.

After racking up five Grammy awards at the Feb. 11 ceremony, the Dixie Chicks' "Taking the Long Way" (9,000) rocketed up 27 positions to No. 5, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

Other Grammy beneficiaries included the "Grammy Nominees 2007" (15,000) from No. 4 to No. 2, Corinne Bailey Rae's self-titled album from No. 19 to No. 8, and John Mayer's "Continuum" from No. 37 to No. 10.

Meanwhile, Norah Jones's second full-length disc "Not Too Late" remained at No. 1 for a third consecutive week, with sales of over 24,000 copies.

Jann Arden stayed at No. 3 with her covers disc ""Uncover Me," while Chicago pop-punkers Fall Out Boy slipped two notches to No. 4 with "Infinity on High."

Rounding out the top 10 was Justin Timberlake's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" at No. 6, Nelly Furtado's "Loose" at No. 7, and Gwen Stefani's "The Sweet Escape" at No. 9.

Notable debuts included Lucinda Williams's "West" No. 18 and Van Morrison's "Van Morrison at the Movies: Soundtrack Hits" at No. 28.

In the U.S., Norah Jones hit No. 1 again, followed by Gerald Levert's "In My Songs" in second, "Grammy Nominees" in third, Corinne Bailey Rae in fourth, and Fall Out Boy in fifth.
