Kenny Chesney Crowns Album Charts, Debuts Four New Songs

Published on May 11, 2013 by CMT News

Kenny Chesney
This is emphatically Kenny Chesney’s week. Not only does his Life on a Rock top
both Billboard‘s country and all-genres charts, he also has four new songs on the country airplay list.

By Neilsen
SoundScan’s count, Life on a Rock sold 152,805 copies its first week out.

Bells are ringing for Florida
Georgia Line
as well. The hot new duo’s “Get Your
Shine On”
moves up to No. 1 in the airplay competition after a 22-week climb. This is FGL’s second consecutive chart-topper.

There
are three other new albums apart from Chesney’s. They are the Randy Rogers Band’s
Trouble, debuting at No. 3, William Clark Green’s Rose Queen (No. 34) and Georgia Holt’s Honky Tonk Woman
(No. 43).

Returning to the chart is Chris Cagle’s scrappy Back in the Saddle
at No. 74.

All four new songs belong to Chesney: “Coconut Tree” (with Willie Nelson,
No. 56), “When I See This Bar” (No. 57), “Must Be Something I Missed” (No. 59) and “Life on a Rock” (No. 60).

Chesney
can take extra pleasure in the fact that he wrote No. 60 and co-wrote No. 57 and No. 59.

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

Completing the Top 5 songs cluster are Miranda Lambert’s
“Mama’s Broken Heart,” Darius
Rucker
‘s “Wagon Wheel,” Chesney’s “Pirate
Flag”
and Thompson Square’s “If
I Didn’t Have You”
(last week’s No. 1).

Next week we’ll see how Lady Antebellum’s
newest album, Golden, fared. It went on sale Tuesday (May 7).
