Three new albums splash into the Top 5 list this week, led by Scotty McCreery’s See You Tonight, which explodes at No. 1 on Nielsen SoundScan-certified sales of 52,240 copies.
Arriving at No. 2 and No. 4, respectively, are Willie Nelson’s To All the Girls … (with 42,622 units sold) and Chase Rice’s EP, Ready to Roll (16,903).
Also new to the albums list are Will Hoge’s Never Give In (No. 23), Bubba Sparxxx’ Pain Management (No. 40) and — ring those jingle bells, please — Elvis Presley’s Merry Christmas … Love Elvis (No. 61).
Returning to the chart at No. 74 is The Statler Brothers’ Best From the Farewell Concert.
Now that we’ve seen the year’s first Christmas album chart, any guesses on who’ll chart the first holiday song? And will that lyrical juggernaut Dallas Davidson have written it? Stay tuned.
