Like Old Man River and Kanye West’s babblings, Sam Hunt’s Montevallo just keeps rolling along. This is its fourth straight week at the top of Billboard’s country albums chart.
Luke Bryan’s “I See You” is demonstrating some staying power, too, reveling in its second week as America’s most-played country song.
Montevallo kept its hold by selling 14,776 more copies since the last report, which brings its total sales, by Nielsen SoundScan’s count, to 302,398 units.
On Billboard’s all-genres rankings, Montevallo stands at No. 18. The highest it’s been on that chart is No. 3.
Hunt’s “House Party” re-enters at No. 58.
Rounding out the Top 5 albums array, in descending order, are Jason Aldean’s Old Boots, New Dirts, Underwood’s Greatest Hits, Decade #1, Florida Georgia Line’s Anything Goes and Eric Church’s The Outsiders.
Next week we should be able to see if the Grammy award show had a significant impact on sales and airplay activity. And wouldn’t it be nice if it did?
