Country Album Chart Report: October 27, 2015

Luke Bryan's "Kill The Lights" once-again leads the pack of top albums on our weekly chart rundown but he should lose out on #1 for the next few weeks to Carrie Undewood as "Storyteller" is set to debut.

Luke Bryan's Kill The Lights once again has the pole position on this week's rundown of the best selling albums in country music (this is whole albums, not album equivalent albums) and the total is now 663k for Luke. At #2 is Thomas Rhett's Tangled Up The album has moved 115k in 4 weeks.  George Strait's Cold Beer Conversation has moved 141k plus in the same four weeks while Don Henley's Cass County has moved 145k (both Strait and Henley have sold this well on the basis of their legendary status moreso than any exposure on radio or streaming airplay programs). Sam Hunt rounds out the Top 10 with Montevallo, his debut album which has now scanned over 800k to date.
