Just as suspected, Kacey Musgraves bullets to the top of Billboard's country albums chart this week with her roundly praised Same Trailer Different Park. Nielsen SoundScan says she sold 43,496 copies her first turn out.
Blake Shelton's got nothing to complain about, either, as his "Sure Be Cool If You Did" spends its second week at No. 1 on the country airplay rankings.
Four other albums besides Musgraves' debuted this week: Kyle Park's Beggin' for More (No. 24), Icon: Chris Cagle (No. 48), Icon: Trace Adkins (No. 55) and Country: Willie Nelson (No. 70).
(They're practically microwaving icons these days, aren't they?)
Ryan Bingham's Tomorrowland returns at No. 75.
There are four new songs to herald, as well, notably: Phil Vassar's "Love Is Alive" (No. 49 -- and, no, it's not a cover of the Judds' 1985 hit), Jon Pardi's "Up All Night" (No. 52), Lonestar's "Maybe Someday" (No. 58) and Luke Bryan's "Buzzkill" (No. 59).
Re-entering the chart are Katie Armiger's "Playin' With Fire" (No. 57) and Big & Rich's "Cheat on You" (No. 60).
Lined up directly behind Musgraves within the Top 5 albums cluster are Bryan's Spring Break ... Here to Party, Florida Georgia Line's Here's to the Good Times, Taylor Swift's Red and Little Big Town's Tornado, in that order.
The No. 2 through No. 5 songs are Hunter Hayes' "Somebody's Heartbreak," Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck," Lady Antebellum's "Downtown" and Carrie Underwood's "Two Black Cadillacs."
