Shania Twain debuts at #2 this week with her live Vegas album. To give you an idea how far Sam Hunt is ahead of everyone behind him on the chart, according to Billboard his “set outsold Twain’s by a nearly 2-to-1 margin (16,000, up 2 percent).
Aaron Watson’sThe Underdog fell six spots from #2 to #8 this week.
Zac Brown Band moved up eight spots to #11 with their greatest hits album, making it the biggest gainer.
George Strait’sThe Cowboy Rides Away: Live From AT&T Stadium album moved up five spots from #18.
Cole Swindell moved up five spots with his self-titled debut album.
Little Big Town’sPain Killer fell five spots.
Blake Shelton’sBring Back The Sunshine fell seven spots.
The biggest loser this week was The Mavericks, as their album Mono fell 10 spots to #20.
Steve Earle and The Dukes fell nine spots to #23 with their new album Terraplane.
Sturgill Simpson’sMetamodern Sounds in Country Music run in the Top Country Albums chart will most likely come to an end next week, as he has consistently dropped in the last few weeks. But keep in mind out of all the albums on the chart, it’s spent the fourth most amount of time on it (only trailing Church, Bryan and Swindell). That itself is an accomplishment.
The two new additions to this week’s chart are Asleep at the Wheel’s tribute album to Bob Wills and The Average Joes DJ’s Present: Mud In The Club, Volume 1 (no I will not review it, so don’t even ask).
Aaron Watson’s new album The Underdog debuts at #1 this week! It’s the first #1 album of his career, so congratulations to Watson on this big accomplishment.
