  • The top three on the chart remained the same this week. Florida Georgia Line’s Anything Goes moved up to #4 and Eric Church’s The Outsiders moved up four spots to round out the top five.
  • Miranda Lambert’s Platinum moved up three spots, from #10 to #7. This was expected due to the Grammy “bump.”
  • Blake Shelton’s Bringing Back The Sunshine dropped five spots, from #4 to #9.
  • Dierks Bentley’s Riser reentered the top 25 this week and was also the biggest gainer this week, moving up 12 spots from #26 to #14.
  • Sturgill Simpson’s Metamodern Sounds in Country Music was the biggest loser this week, dropping 10 spots from #8 to #18.
  • Brett Eldredge’s Bring You Back was the second biggest loser, dropping eight spots from #17 to #25.
  • Thomas Rhett’s It Goes Like This returned to the top 25 this week, along with the soundtrack to the movie The Best of Me.

    Damn it why did Sturgill drop 10 spots?

      Good question. I’m not exactly sure. Perhaps the Grammy bump other artists experienced hurt him on the charts, being that he didn’t get one.

        Yeah, I’m pretty sure it’s because of other artists getting a post-Grammy bump.

        We’ll see if Sturgill pops back up near the top ten next week.

    Hi Josh I am your new follower and new to your site. I agree that Florida Georgia Line, Chase Rice, and Sam Hunt CD’s are pure crap. I do not like bro-country, pop-country, or rap in my country music.
