Jon Pardi’s “Head Over Boots” Is Week’s Most-Played Country Song

Blake Shelton’s If I’m Honest Once Again No. 1 Country Album

Jon Pardi’s “Head Over Boots,” which made its debut a distant 46 weeks ago, has finally skipped into the winner’s circle on Billboard’s country airplay charts.

Across the aisle on the country albums rankings, Blake Shelton’s If I’m Honest bounces back into the No. 1 slot. In its 12 weeks of chart activity, the album has sold just over 400,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan’s count.

The week’s highest debuting album is Cody Johnson’s Gotta Be Me, which bows at No. 2 on sales of 22,691 units.

The Cadillac Three’s Bury Me in My Boots debuts at No. 5 on first-week sales of 10,952 copies.

There are three other new arrivals — Elvis Presley’s Elvis: Way Down in the Jungle Room (No. 6), Chris Lane’s Girl Problems (No. 8) and the Lacs & Hard Target: Racket Country’s Welcome to Dodge City (No. 22).

Returning to action are Jimmy Fortune’s Hits & Hymns (No. 39), Alan Jackson’s Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story (No. 41) and Don Henley’s Cass County (No. 49).

Only two new songs come aboard — RaeLynn’s “Love Triangle” (No. 57) and Ronnie Dunn’s “Damn Drunk,” with Kix Brooks (No. 58).

Gary Allan’s “Do You Wish It Was Me?” comes back on at No. 60.

The No. 3 and No. 4 albums, in that order, are Chris Stapleton’s Traveller and Hillary Scott & the Scott Family’s Love Remains. Jake Owen’s American Love, last week’s No. 1, now stands at No. 7.

Last week’s top single, Chris Lane‘s “Fix,” has slipped to No. 6.

Completing the Top 5 songs array are Dan + Shay’s “From the Ground Up,” Sam Hunt’s “Make You Miss Me,” Owen’s “American Country Love Song” and Kelsea Ballerini’s “Peter Pan.”
