Garth Brooks dominates the top two slots this week on our rundown. While his 10 disc The Ultimate Collection didn't debut on the SoundScan chart for some reason this week, it has reportedly scanned 134k this past week. That'd be good enough for the project to be certified Platinum in just one week of sales. It would also give Garth's Gunslinger album -- a project which is part of the box set -- a nice start before it hits stores as a separate product on Black Friday. Garth and Trisha Yearwood's first "duets project," Christmas Together debuts with 21k this week to take the SoundScan #1 while Home Free has the #2 SoundScan album with Full of (Even More) Cheer. Tattooed Heart from Ronnie Dunn sits at #3 with 13k albums sold in its first week while Chris Stapleton is at #4 with nearly 1.7 million albums sold. At #5 on SoundScan this week is Kenny Chesney's Cosmic Halleujah.
Top Ten Recap
Keith Urban's Ripcord is at #6 with the Now Country #1's at #7. Florida Georgia Line's Dig Your Roots is at #8 with sales at 260k to date. Jason Aldean is at #9 with They Don't Know while Brett Eldredge's Glow is at #10.
Notables include debuts from\ Christmas albums from Jennifer Nettles, Reba, Rascal Flatts, George Strait, Oak Ridge Boys, Jimmy Buffett, Kacey Musgraves, and Loretta Lynn.
