SCOTTY McCREERY: Tops the Country Album Charts
Scotty McCreery's fans came out in force to buy his sophomore release, See You Tonight, making it the nation's top-selling country album in its first week. Scotty, whose first record was done so quickly after his American Idol win, says he had a lot more input on this one. "It was just kind of cool to be there and be a part of the process. Not just get in there and sing real quick and leave. It was a piece of art, which was nice."
Willie Nelson's first-week sales numbers for his duets album, To All the Girls..., lands him solidly in second place, pushing Luke Bryan's Crash My Party to number-three. The surprise of the week is Chase Rice's Ready Set Roll, which lands at number-four despite very little pre-release fanfare. Chase is a writer on Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise." And last week's number-one album, Cassadee Pope's Frame by Frame, rounds out the Top 5.
