With Nightfall, Little Big Town has country music's most-consumed album of the past week. The album, which also debuts at #1 on the Top 10 Country Albums Chart, is the quartet's latest blockbuster and also landed at #13 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums sales chart. At #2 on this chart is Luke Combs with his What You See Is What You Get. The young singer may only be on his sophomore album but he's already a bankable superstar in country music and one of the genre's true modern "consumption" artists as his debut album sits at #3 with 2.6 million in activity to date. If you're wondering, "Activity" is total activity of all tracks housed on a project (or album) and thus, the activity counted here equals "RIAA Gold, Platinum or Diamond" awards for 500,000, 1 million (plus) or 10 Million plus instead of just "albums." At #4 is Dustin Lynch's latest record for Broken Bow Records, Tullahoma. The record -- thanks to Gold-certified streaming #1 hits "Ridin' Roads" and "Good Girl." Rounding out the Top 5 is Blake Shelton's latest album Fully Loaded: God's Country. A quasi "Greatest hits" collection with the hits he's had from the two records since Loaded: 20 #1 Hits was released about 6 years ago, the album is already over 1,000,000 in total consumption numbers for the mutli-format superstar (and will only rise on his powerful new duet "Nobody But You" with Gwen Stefani).
Sitting at #6 on this chart is Morgan Wallen's debut album If I Know Me. The album has been consumed nearly 775,000 times to date and is sure to end up as a Platinum album for him. It features "Up Down," "Whiskey Glasses" (2019's most-played radio hit) and "Chasin' You." Dan+Shay are likely to jump up after their televised Grammy win for "Speechless" from this album Sunday (that'll appear on next week's chart) but they're currently at #7 with their self-titled third album this week with total activity at nearly 1.3 million to date. right behind Dan+Shay is Maren Morris with GIRL, the album is approaching Gold status while at #9 is Chris Stapleton's 4x Platinum debut Traveller. The album at #10 this week is Old Dominion's self-titled third album. The band's album has been consumed 332k times to date (as album sales equivalents).
The rest of the chart below has 11 notable albums including Marcus King's El Dorado, a record released by Easy Eye/Fantasy Records and supported by the Americana community while Lady Antebellum's gorgeous album Ocean is noted as well. Blake Shelton, Zac Brown Band and George Strait all have their greatest hits albums chronicled this week with the former two closing in on 4x Platinum while the latter's total consumption is 5.5 million which when accounting for double album status (based on tracks, I guess?), it's potentially a 10x Platinum (or Diamond) recording now (at least it should be eligible). Other notable albums from Jon Pardi, Florida Georgia Line and Kacey Musgraves round out the rundown this week.
