    Wow the Gloriana album didnt even,make a second week. They are irrelevant should stop making music and they should get dropped from their label.

    Wow…..I’m completely shocked that that Now That’s I Call Country Vol. 8 actually topped the chart…..I don’t think I’ve bought one of them since the first one. They just get worse every year and you’re right, there’s no need for them when we have access to several other different other music features.

    I’m sad that Willie and Merle took that big of a drop but I guess even reaching #1 in the first place is a huge accomplishment

    I’m still in awe that Eric Church’s Outsiders is still in the top 10 with the album being over a year old. Eric just wrapped up a huge world tour and I think the best is yet to come for him. He’s not “bro-country” and sticks to his originality, which I love. Cant wait to see what the next album has in store for us!

      “Like A Wrecking Ball” is really packing on the weeks at radio, but it is clearly a huge hit for him as reflected in its impressively consistent sales relative to its middling airplay. And I bet EMI Nashville will gladly prefer the sales as a whole.

      It will outsell “Talladega” when all is said and done, even though I expect “Talladega” to remain his most successful radio single this era.
