Notes:

  • Zac Brown Band retakes the top spot this week with their new album Jekyll + Hyde.
  • Tim McGraw’s new 35 Biggest Hits album debuts at #8 this week. If you’re wondering why McGraw isn’t promoting this, it’s because he didn’t endorse the release. This is Curb Records being Curb Records.
  • The biggest gainer this week was Little Big Town’s Pain Killer moving up three spots from #8 to #5.
  • A Thousand Horses and their brand new album Southernality fell eight spots from #3 to #11.
  • Big Smo’s new EP Bringin’ It Home debuts at #12 on the chart this week.
  • Billy Currington’s Summer Forever fell five spots from #9 to #14.
  • Hank Williams Jr. debuts at #16 this week with his new 35 Biggest Hits album. Just like McGraw, Williams has nothing to do with this release and it’s only Curb behind it.
  • The Lacs’ Outlaw In Me album fell four spots to #19.
  • Reba’s Love Somebody album fell four spots to #22.
  • Chase Rice’s Ignite The Night fell four spots to #24.
  • Lastly, the biggest loser this week was Kelsea Ballerini and her debut album The First Time, which fell nine spots from #16 to #25.

    I know I shouldn’t be, but I’m surprised by Curb Records releasing yet another TIm McGraw hits package. Seriously, who is buying this? that didn’t have it before or wouldn’t have bought a previous one?

    Curb records is wasting their time and wasting fans money for the songs they already have. This makes no sense what so ever.

    I look at these Curb packages like I do at the Now! That’s What I Call Country series packages. There’s no point for them anymore with all of the online features available today. I mean seriously, you can find I think nearly every song on that Tim McGraw album on every other greatest hits album he’s had. It pisses me off when they try to make it look like a “good” deal when they throw in an extra bonus track or two. Them and Showdog are the most piss poor labels I’ve ever seen.

    In other news, since this is a post about albums, I’ve finally picked up all of the ones I wanted (I think)
    This week I’ve picked up:

    Ryan Bingham- “Fear and Saturday Night”
    Brandi Carlile- “The Firewatchers Daughter”
    Banditos- “Banditos”
    The Mavericks- “Mono”
