Powered by the initial sale of 38,495 units, as calculated by Nielsen SoundScan, Lee Brice’s I Don’t Dance debuts at No. 1 this week on Billboard’s country albums chart.
Trumpets are sounding too for Lynch’s Where It’s At album which enters the chart at No. 2 on sales of 30,866 copies.
Last week’s No. 1 album, Miranda Lambert’s Platinum, has eased back to the No. 9 slot.
Lining up directly behind “Where It’s At (Yep, Yep)” on the airplay list are Kenny Chesney’s “American Kids” (last week’s No. 1), Bryan’s “Roller Coaster,” Cole Swindell’s “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” and Florida Georgia Line’s “Dirt.”
Does is seem to you that country songs are getting a bit bossy? We’ve noticed a lot of direct commands lately, orders such as “Leave the Night On” (Sam Hunt), “Look at You” (Big & Rich), the contradictory “Close Your Eyes” (Parmalee), “Take It on Back” (Chase Bryant), “Live a Little” (Dean Alexander), “Shut Me Up” (Lindsay Ell) and “Lie a Little Better” (Lucy Hale).
As a public service, we remind you that you don’t have to do any of these things.
