There’s a flood of new music charting this week.
It’s a spectacularly good week for Luke Bryan. His Spring Break 4 … Suntan City EP debuts at No. 2, while his gold-selling Tailgates & Tanlines hangs in at No. 3. The former album, by the way, sold just a tad under 30,000 copies its first week out, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
There are four other new albums and eight new songs to rejoice over. The albums are Icon: Gary Allan (No. 29), JB and the Moonshine Band’s Beer for Breakfast (No. 31), Neal McCoy’s redundantly titled XII: Twelve (No. 58) and Ty Stone’s American Style (No. 68).
Icon: Loretta Lynn re-enters the chart at No. 72.
Songs making their initial bow are The Band Perry’s “Postcard From Paris” (No. 52), David Nail’s “Sound of a Million Dreams” (No. 53), Aaron Lewis’ “Endless Summer” (No. 54), James Wesley’s “Walking Contradiction” (No. 55).
Be excited. Be very excited.
