Country Albums Chart Report: February 8

Chris Stapleton is fast-approaching Platinum (or more) and continues to lead our sales rundown this week.

Chris Stapleton's status as the #1 Country Album in the USA continues as Traveller outpaces the #2 album, Sam Hunt's Montevallo by over 3x in physical sales. Hunt's Montevallo is certified Double Platinum and Stapleton's a good bet to get there too. Blake Shelton's Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits is at #3 with sales of 230k to date. Hank Williams Jr's It's About Time is at #4 with sales of 40k. Carrie Underwood's Storyteller is at #5 with sales now scanning nearly 500k (it'll happen next week). She scored a sales increase this week.
