Indeed, Chris Young is “comin’ over.” And, for the moment at least, he’s staying over. Young’s I’m Comin’ Over collection of songs debuts at No. 1 this week on Billboard’s county albums chart, while his single of that title spends its second week at the top of the country airplay rankings.
Unlike last week, when new albums were virtually exploding onto the chart like popcorn, there are only two to report this time around – Young’s and Chris Lane’s Fix EP, which bows at No. 46.
Joey Martin Feek, the lead singer of the much-applauded husband-and-wife duo, is currently in hospice care after a brave battle with cancer.
There’s also a paucity of new songs this week – only four. They are Frankie Ballard’s “It All Started With a Beer” (No. 45), Old Dominion’s “Snapback” (No. 51), Ashley Campbell’s “Remembering” (No. 56) and Love and Theft’s “Whiskey On My Breath” (No. 59).
The No. 2 through No. 5 albums are, in that order, Chris Stapleton’s Traveller (which was No. 1 for the past two weeks), Eric Church’s Mr. Misunderstood, Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller and Tim McGraw’s Damn Country Music.
