What a way to end the month!
Steven Tyler, the Aerosmith frontman who’s still finding his way in country music, found the golden door this week as his We’re All Somebody From Somewhere debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s country albums chart.
It reaches that eminence on first-week sales of 16,771 units, according to the tally masters at Nielsen SoundScan.
Albums returning to action include Brett Young’s self-titled EP (No. 31), the Highwaymen’s Live: American Outlaws (No. 35), Hank Williams Jr.’s It’s About Time (No. 48) and Don Henley’s Cass County (No. 50).
Miranda Lambert scores big with her new single, “Vice.” It bows high up the chart at No. 18. Also charting for the first time are Brantley Gilbert’s “The Weekend” (No. 38) and Trent Harmon’s “There’s a Girl” (No. 53).
Acronyms are fun to play with. What do you think “H.O.L.Y.” might stand for other than “high on loving you”? And please keep it decent. The ribald ones we can come up with on our own.
