For the second week in a row, Blake Shelton’s Red River Blue occupies the pinnacle of Billboard’s country albums chart.
The highest-debuting of four new albums is the various artists anthology, Mud Digger: Volume 2, arriving at No. 20. The others are Ricky Skaggs’ Country Hits Bluegrass Style (No. 51), the Dirt Drifters’ This Is My Blood (No. 57) and Rich O’Toole’s Kiss of a Liar (No. 73).
Parading in directly behind Red River Blue in this week’s Top 5 albums cluster are Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party, Young’s Neon, Justin Moore’s Outlaws Like Me and the Zac Brown Band’s You Get What You Give, in that order.
The No. 2 through No. 5 songs are Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem” (last week’s No. 1), the Zac Brown Band’s “Knee Deep” (featuring Jimmy Buffett), Lady Antebellum’s “Just a Kiss” and Shelton’s “Honey Bee.”
Rock on, hillbillies!
