The much-publicized Dustin Lynch lives up to his press this week as his self-titled debut album barrels in to No. 1 on Billboard’s country albums chart.
With Nielsen Soundscan-confirmed sales of 23,077 copies, Lynch’s CD nudges the Zac Brown Band’s Uncaged into second place.
Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” which flashed onto the songs chart at No. 13 last week, drops back to No. 19. But it stays at No. 1 for a second week on the current digital tracks list and on the Billboard Hot 100 chart reflecting all radio formats.
Is the record industry in such hard times that it can’t afford copy writers? A little more imagination in these album titles, please!
With the entry of Rhett’s “Beer With Jesus,” there are now three songs on the chart that mention that yeasty beverage — the others being Toby Keith’s “I Like Girls That Drink Beer” and Kip Moore’s “Beer Money.”
That’s enough don’t you think?
