Chris Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over” Spends Its Third Week at No. 1

And Chris Stapleton’s Traveller Once Again Wears Country Albums Crown

No new titles to report this week on the summits of Billboard’s country albums and country airplay songs charts.

For the third straight week, Chris Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over” is the most-played song. Album-wise, Chris Stapleton’s Traveller bounces back as the week’s bestselling country album.

By Nielsen-SoundScan’s count, Traveller has sold 437,494 copies since its release 30 weeks ago.

And check this out: Sam Hunt’s Montevallo, which has spent most of this year safely in the Top 5 corral, returns to that neighborhood this week after a brief absence. Its total sales now stand at 864,437.

There is only one new album and two new songs to mention. The album is Rhonda Vincent’s Christmas Time, which enters the chart with bells jingling at No. 26.

Carrie Underwood has the top debuting song, “Heartbeat,” which pops in at No. 41.

Toby Keith’s “Beautiful Stranger” bows at No. 59.
Three albums return to the charts: Reba’s Love Somebody (No. 36), Dierks Bentley’s Riser (No. 49) and Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival (No. 50).

Zac Brown Band’s Greatest Hits So Far … takes a giant leap from No. 36 to No. 10. The album’s total sales amount to 232,300.

The No. 2 through No. 5 albums, in that order, are Underwood’s Storyteller, Eric Church’s Mr. Misunderstood, Young’s I’m Comin’ Over (last week’s No. 1) and Hunt’s Montevallo.

Rounding out the Top 5 songs array are Blake Shelton’s “Gonna,” Dan + Shay’s “Nothin’ Like You,” Jason Aldean’s “Gonna Know We Were Here” and Underwood’s “Smoke Break.”

Six of the Top 5 albums are Christmas packages, with the highest ranking being Now That’s What I Call Country Christmas, a multi-artist collection that ranks No. 12.

Is that sufficient to deck your halls?
