Third season The Voice winner Cassadee Pope debuts at the top of Billboard’s country albums chart this week with her Frame by Frame collection. It claims that eminence by having sold 43,198 copies, by Nielsen SoundScan’s count, its first seven days out.
There are only two new songs to report: Dan & Shay’s “19 You & Me” (No. 55) and Chris Janson’s “Cut Me Some Slack” (No. 60).
Keep an eye on Florida Georgia Line’s “Stay,” which rockets from No. 44 to No. 30 this week in just its fifth week on the chart.
Completing the Top 5 albums gallery, in descending order, are Luke Bryan’s Crash My Party (last week’s No. 1), Joe Nichols’ Crickets, Florida Georgia Line’s Here’s to the Good Times and Justin Moore’s Off the Beaten Path.
Aspiring songwriters take note: In addition to the two “night” songs alluded to in the preceding paragraph, we noticed six more nocturnal-themed songs on this week’s chart. Are you ready?
The Eli Young Band’s “Drunk Last Night” (No. 18), Eric Paslay’s “Friday Night” (No. 21), Jon Pardi’s “Up All Night” (No. 28), Scotty McCreery’s “See You Tonight” (No. 32), Randy Houser’s “Goodnight Kiss” (No. 37) and Jerrod Niemann’s “Drink to That All Night” (No. 45).
Seems like the night has a thousand ayes.
