It’s quiet out there. Too quiet.
The charts seem to be holding their breath — as if waiting for the seismic bang Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights album is expected to create when its numbers are tallied up next week.
Sam Hunt’s unsinkable Montevallo bobs back to the top of the country albums chart again. According to the Nielsen SoundScan count, Montevallo has sold 679,996 copies in its 41-week run.
There aren’t any new albums to report now, but it’s worth noticing that the Zac Brown Band’s Greatest Hits So Far … package has soared from No. 17 to No. 3. It first charted 39 weeks ago.
There are two new songs — Tim McGraw’s “Top of the World,” arriving at No. 30, and Waterloo Revival’s “Bad for You,” bowing at No. 58.
Last week’s top song, Bryan’s ““Kick the Dust Up,” now stands at No. 6.
Look for some real dust clouds next week.
