CMT Favorite Chesney Goes to No. 1 on Two Charts

BNA Records and the RCA Label Group are crowing about Kenny Chesney’s first-week sales figures. No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems moved 235,316 units — enough to put it at the top of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and The Billboard 200 overall chart. During the first week of sales Chesney was featured extensively on CMT in a concert special, taped programming and live appearances on CMT Most Wanted Live and the Grand Ole Opry. Chesney is only the second country artist to debut atop The Billboard 200 in 2002. Alan Jackson’s Drive also accomplished the feat. 05/01/02
