Billowing up in the cool fall air, Blackberry Smoke rises to the top of Billboard’s country albums chart with Like an Arrow.
This is the second time this Georgia-based band has attained that eminence, first having done so last year with Holding All the Roses.
By Nielsen SoundScan’s count, Like an Arrow sold 18,225 units its first week out.
Debuting at No. 4 on the albums rankings is Chris Young’s It Must Be Christmas, on initial sales of 8.209 copies.
Also new this week are the Mavericks’ All Night Live, Volume I (No. 14) and Paul Cauthen’s My Gospel (No. 50).
There are five new songs, led by Little Big Town’s “Better Man,” which bows at No. 38.
Trailing “Setting The World on Fire” within the Top 5 songs spread are Luke Bryan’s “Move,” Cole Swindell’s “Middle of a Memory”, Aldean’s “A Little More Summertime” and LOCASH’s “I Know Somebody” (last week’s No. 1).
Keep that shopping list open. More Christmas albums are headed your way.
