Zac Brown Band Crowns Country Albums Chart With Welcome Home

And Luke Combs’ “Hurricane” Is Most-Played Song for Second Week

Here they come again.

Two years ago this month, the Zac Brown Band debuted its Jekyll + Hyde album at the top of both Billboard‘s country and all-genres charts.

This week, they’re back in rare air with Welcome Home. It reigns at the No. 1 country spot and at No. 2 in the all-genres ranking. (Former One Direction member Harry Styles’ self-titled collection is No. 1.)

Luke Combs’ “Hurricane” stays numero uno on the country airplay songs chart for the second week in a row.

There’s precious little new action to report on either chart — just one other new album, Colter Walls’ eponymous package at No. 50, and two new songs, Chris Janson‘s “Fix a Drink” (No. 52) and the Railers’ “11:59 (Central Standard Time)” (No. 59).

No doubt spurred by the excitement surrounding the release of ZBB’s Welcome Home, Jekyll + Hyde leaps from No. 46 to No. 30.

Two old standbys return to the albums chart this week — George Strait‘s 50 Number Ones (back at No. 40) and Luke Bryan‘s Tailgates & Tanlines (No. 48).

Rounding out the Top 5 albums array, in descending order, are Chris Stapleton‘s From a Room: Volume 1 (last week’s No. 1) and Traveller, Keith Urban‘s Ripcord and the self-titled Brett Young.

The No. 2 through No. 5 songs are Brett Young’s “In Case You Didn’t Know,” Sam Hunt‘s “Body Like a Back Road,” Dierks Bentley‘s “Black” and Darius Rucker‘s “If I Told You.”

No flippancy this week. Manchester still bleeds.
