There are no fireworks this week on Billboard’s country albums and airplay charts — not much movement and not much new.
Weston Burt’s Lucky Sometimes EP racks up the week’s highest debut, entering at No. 56. The only other new title to note is Jackson Taylor & the Sinners’ Crazy Again, bowing at No. 69.
Gretchen Wilson enters at No. 59 with “Crazy.”
The No. 2 through No. 5 albums, in that order, are Blake Shelton’s Based on a True Story, Hayes’ self-titled debut (last week’s No. 1), Darius Rucker’s True Believer and the multi-artist collection Now That’s What I Call Country, Volume 6.
Trooping in behind “Crash My Party” in the Top 5 songs cluster Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer,” The Band Perry’s “Done,” , Jake Owen’s “Anywhere With You” (last week’s No. 1) and the Zac Brown Band’s “Jump Right In.”
Nielsen SoundScan reports that sales of the Top 75 country albums dropped 10 percent below those of last week — from a total of 325,292 units to 273,464.
So who’s doing what wrong?
