Are we eyeing an impending song of the year nomination this early in the year? The Zac Brown Band’s “Homegrown” is piling up some strong creds for that honor as it spends its third consecutive week at the top of Billboard’s country airplay charts.
Also staying strong on the albums rankings is Darius Rucker’s turn on the mountain top this week as his Southern Style. This is its second week at No. 1.
The highest debuting album this time around is Will Hoge’s Small Town Dreams, which enters at No. 15. It earns its niche on first-week sales of 3,730 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The Average Joes DJ’s Present: Mud in the Club, Volume 1, a multi-artist package, returns to the chart at No. 50.
The No. 2 through No. 5 albums, in that order, are Sam Hunt’s Montevallo, the various artist collection Now That’s What I Call ACM Awards, 50 Years, Luke Bryan’s Spring Break … Checkin’ Out and Florida Georgia Line’s Anything Goes.
Any bets on what chart convulsions Sunday night’s (April 19) ACM Awards will generate?
