At #3 is Here’s TO The Good Times from Florida Georgia Line and at #4 is Luke’s standard album Crash My Party. Rounding out the top 5 is the always fun ACM ZinePak! It’s fantastic with fun stories, interviews and more, in additon to two CDs for only $10 (this message brought to you by Roughstock, ha!).
