Jon Pardi Racks Up Second No. 1 Manly Footwear Song With “Dirt on My Boots”

Little Big Town's The Breaker Is Top Country Album for Second Week

Little Big Town‘s The Breaker holds the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s top country albums chart for the second week, while Jon Pardi‘s “Dirt on My Boots” moves into the prime country airplay real estate, concluding a 25-week march.

This is Pardi’s second No. 1 single, his first having been “Head Over Boots” in 2015.

The only album to debut this week is Moonshine Bandits’ Baptized in Bourbon, which staggers in at No. 19.

Returning to action, we have Justin Moore‘s Kinda Don’t Care (back at No. 47) and the Zac Brown Band‘s Jekyll + Hyde (No. 50).

It’s a bit sunnier when it comes to new songs. There are eight of them, including Old Dominion‘s “No Such Thing As a Broken Heart” (No. 31), Big & Rich‘s “California” (No. 47), Dustin Lynch‘s “Small Town Boy” (No. 54) and Reba McEntire‘s “Back to God” (No. 56).

Also, Trace Adkins‘ “Watered Down” (No. 57), Kristian Bush‘s “Sing Along” (No. 58), Michael Tyler‘s “They Can’t See” (No. 59) and Frankie Ballard‘s resurrection of fellow Michigander Bob Seger’s “You’ll Accomp’ny Me” (No. 60).

Following The Breaker in descending order in this week’s Top 5 albums cluster are Garth Brooks’ The Ultimate Collection, Keith Urban‘s Ripcord, Alison KraussWindy City and Chris Stapleton‘s Traveller.

Aaron Watson‘s last week debut, Vaquero, slides from No. 2 to No. 6.

The No. 2 through No. 5 songs are Michael Ray‘s “Think a Little Less,” Brad Paisley‘s “Today”, Luke Bryan‘s “Fast” and Lauren Alaina‘s “Road Less Traveled.”

Chris Young‘s “Sober Saturday Night,” last week’s top song, now stands at No. 6.
