Luke Combs's This One's For You (Too) sits at #1 this week with his total consumption for the week at 27,000 album equivalents. His streams are approaching 24,000,000 for the week and that easily makes him the most-streamed country artist of the week (for one album). Dan+Shay, who sat at #1 last week with their self-titled album having approached nearly 181,000 total units sold in just two weeks (*this also includes sales/streams of the pre-release singles). A remarkable achievement for the duo. Combs, for his part, is approaching 1,000,000 total album equivalents for his album. Jason Aldean's Rearview Town is country's best-selling album this week but #3 on the Consumption chart. Total consumption for this album sits at nearly 550,000 albums. Kane Brown's Kane Brown sits at 1.075 million albums consumed totally. At #5 with total all time consumption of 3.314 million albums is Chris Stapleton's breakout album Traveller.
Thomas Rhett's Life Changes is riding high on single #4, the album's title track, and has moved a total of 850,000 albums consumed since being released in 2017. over 13,000,000 fans streamed the album last week. Brett Young's debut album is also on it's fourth single. The record is expected to not produce any more singles but it's been a successful debut album for the California native as he's now sold nearly 826,000 total albums on this chart. Kenny Chesney's Live In No Shoes Nation two disc live album has barely any streaming numbers and is mostly a physical sales presence and thus has scanned 465k plus to date (and is soon eligible for Platinum). Zac Brown Band's Greatest Hits...So Far sits at #9 with total all-time consumption at 7.5 million plus, the largest figure on this rundown. If trends hold forth, in a couple of years, this album will be certified Diamond for consumption of 10,000,000 albums "sold." (Note: Consumption number data is now used for RIAA Album and single sales certifications). Rounding out the Top 10 this week is Luke Bryan's What Makes You Country album. An album that is essentially a Gold-eligible album at this point with total all time consumption listed at nearly 499,000.
Our rundown actually goes 30 albums deep but we do find it interesting that Jon Pardi is five singles deep on California Sunrise and has total album consumption of 841,000+ and that means he's likely to hit Platinum with this album. Sam Hunt's Montevallo hasn't had a 'current' single in well over a year and still is a highly-consumed product making him a Triple Platinum act. Other notable albums include Carrie Underwood's Greatest Hits Decade #1. That double album has total consumption of over 4.4 million, pushing it close to 9x platinum eligibility and it, too, will likely end up a Diamond (10x Platinum) award for Underwood and her old label 19/Arista. Old Dominion, Sugarland, Kacey Musgraves, Dierks Bentley and Keith Urban all have current projects on this rundown but perhaps the most-surprising -- if you were to go by pure album sales numbers -- is Morgan Wallen, who rides a strong streaming wave to have total consumption pushing 145,000 units. A remarkable figure that's not bad for a country project without a physical album available in a genre where that still somewhat matters. That sales number is undoubtedly powered by his #1 hit "Up Down."
Note: On the chart below, the * next to an artist's name means we didn't have total alltime consumption data for those album projects (the chart doesn't always include this info), In that case we have the total album consumption noted.
