The top-selling country album for a second week is Kacey Musgraves' Pageant Material. Because of the 11 day tracking period, that means that Easton Corbin's About To Get Real retains the #1 for last week's chart but may get scrubbed in the future because of the chart moves due to the Friday world release day move. However the news from last Wendesday still holds true for Easton and he gets to celebrate having the #1 album on the Albums Chart (nearly 27k scanned). At #3 for the Country Album Chart Report for July 13, 2015 is Sam Hunt's Montevallo. It sits at #3 with sales now at nearly 633k to date while Zac Brown Band's Jekyll + Hyde sits at #4 with 436k to date. Sitting at #5 is Now Country 8. It has scanned over 62k in four weeks on the chart.
