Despite massive publicity about the “Accidental Racist” album cut, the hoopla did not translate into blockbuster first-week
sales for Brad Paisley’s Wheelhouse.

Even so, the album debuts at No.
1 on Billboard‘s country chart and at No. 2 on the magazine’s all-genres ranking.

According to Nielsen SoundScan,
Wheelhouse sold 100,441 copies its first week out, Paisley’s lowest debut number for a “non-instrumental studio album
since 2003,” Billboard reports. (That was the year Mud on the Tires was released.)

On the country airplay
chart, Lady Antebellum’s “Downtown”
arrives at the top after a 12-week climb.

Eric Church’s Caught
in the Act: Live
makes its bow as the No. 3 album with first-week sales of 61,439 units.

The only other new album
is Chuck WicksRough EP, which enters at No. 21.

Returning
albums are Vince Gill’s Ballads (No. 56) and Jake
Owen
‘s Endless Summer EP (No. 65).

There are four new songs to note: Hunter
Hayes
‘ “I Want Crazy” (No. 24), Lennon Maisy’s “Ho Hey” (No. 57), Drake White’s “The Simple Life” (No. 58) and Casey James’ “The Good Life” (No. 60).

Albums No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5, in that order,
are Blake Shelton’s Based on a True Story, The
Band Perry
‘s Pioneer (last week’s No. 1) and Florida Georgia Line’s
Here’s to the Good Times.

Comprising the No. 2 through No. 5 songs are Thompson
Square
‘s “If I Didn’t Have You,” Miranda
Lambert
‘s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” Chris
Young
‘s “I Can Take It From Here” and Lee Brice’s “I
Drive Your Truck”
(last week’s No. 1).
