Jason Aldean Makes 9 Count on Country Chart

Luke Combs Still Has Most Played Song

We don’t pretend to fathom the marketing and promotional strategies that led Jason Aldean’s record label to title his newest and ninth studio album 9. But we’re betting it’s at least equal in linguistic pizzazz to Bob Seger’s Seven and Pearl Jam’s Ten. Patti Smith’s Twelve, though, is pretty damn hard to beat. JUST KIDDING!

Anyway, 9 debuts at No. 1 this week on Billboard’s top country albums chart. It’s Aldean’s seventh collection to do so. On the Billboard 200, 9 enters at No. 2.
There are no other new albums to note. However, Elvis Presley’s The Classic Christmas Album returns to action at No. 12.

Three more holiday albums have climbed into the Top 25: Gene Autry’s Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Other Christmas Classics (No. 8), Burl Ives’ Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (No. 11) and Brenda Lee’s Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree: The Decca Christmas Recordings (No. 15).
