Somebody wake up the charts. They’re in a deep slumber.
On the albums side, Chris Stapleton’s Traveller again reigns at No. 1 in sales. Its grand total, by Nielsen SoundScan’s count, is 1,487,002 copies in the 64th week of its release.
Big Smo’s We the People is the highest-debuting of this week’s two new albums. It comes aboard at No. 13 on sales of 3,408 units. The other newcomer is Mitch Rossell’s Raised by the Radio, which enters at No. 34.
Returning to the chart are Darius Rucker’s Southern Style (at No. 27), Mary Chapin Carpenter’s The Things That We Are Made Of (No. 35), Cassadee Pope’s Summer EP (No. 37), Jimmy Fortune’s Hits & Hymns (No, 43) and Loretta Lynn’s Hymns & Gospel Favorites (No. 48).
The only new song is Kenny Chesney and P!nk’s “Setting the World on Fire,” which bows at No. 22 and is not to be confused with Hank Williams’ “Settin’ The Woods On Fire” from 1952. Rucker’s “If I Told You” bounces back into action at No. 58.
No yawning please. We’ve had enough of that already.
