Comments

Newcomer Dustin Lynch made a big splash. The country singer's debut album is #1 in its first week of release. That little introduction pushed Kenny Chesney's Welcome to the Fishbowl off the top 5 entirely. Other new releases could hardly give pace with Lynch: Dierks Bentley's stopgap release Country & Cold Cans clocked in at #12 while Jt Hodges's self-titled album took a #23 ranking.
