Chris Stapleton’s From a Room, Volume 1 is Week’s Top-Debuting Album

Here we go again.

One hundred and six weeks after Chris Stapleton hit the Billboard country albums chart with Traveller, he’s back at No. 1 with a new collection, From a Room, Volume 1.

And get this: Traveller, after all this time, is still at No. 2!

From a Room debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 all genres listing, right behind Logic’s Everybody.

Blowing in (I couldn’t help myself) at the top of the country airplay songs chart is Luke Comb‘s “Hurricane.” It arrives there after a 30-week swoop.

There are three other new albums — Colt Ford‘s unpunctuated Love Hope Faith (at No. 7), Upchurch’s Son of the South (No. 29) and Ryan Upchurch’s Summer Love EP (No. 35). (Upchurch and Ryan Upchurch are the same.)

Moving back onto the chart are the Zac Brown Band‘s Jekyll + Hyde (No. 46) and Tim McGraw‘s Damn Country Music (No. 48).

There are also three new songs, led by A Thousand Horses‘ “Preachin’ to the Choir” (arriving at No. 58), and followed by Chris Young‘s “Losin’ Sleep” (No. 59) and Parmalee‘s “Sunday Morning” (No. 60).

Brooke Eden returns to the fray at No. 56 with “Act Like You Don’t.”

The No. 3 through No. 5 albums, in descending order, are Keith Urban‘s Ripcord, the eponymous Brett Young and Florida Georgia Line‘s Dig Your Roots.

Willie Nelson‘s God’s Problem Child, which was last week’s top album, now nestles at No. 6.

Completing the Top 5 songs array are Sam Hunt‘s “Body Like a Back Road” (last week’s No. 1), Young’s “In Case You Didn’t Know,” Kelsea Ballerini‘s “Yeah Boy” and Dierks Bentley‘s “Black.”

See you at the CMA Music Festival. That’ll be me waving from an air-conditioned limo while quaffing mimosas.
