Blake Shelton Is ‘All About’ a No. 1 Album
Blake Shelton has become only the second country artist to dislodge Lady Antebellum from the No. 1 spot on the country album chart since their reign began early this year with 'Need You Now.' Blake's second (and final?) Six Pak, 'All About Tonight,' sold 33,000 copies, according to Nielsen Soundscan data. Blake also bows (appropriately enough) at No. 6 on the multi-genre Billboard 200, putting him in the company of Justin Bieber, Arcade Fire and Eminem in the Top 10 on that chart. Blake's first Six Pak, 'Hillbilly Bone' debuted at No. 2 on the country chart earlier this year. Blake also holds the No. 1 spot on the country singles charts with the title track from 'All About Tonight.'
"I've been telling people in interviews that if someone had never heard my music before and asked me what album they should buy of mine, I would recommend this one because it truly is the best work I have done," says Blake. "It's a validation for me to know that fans feel the same way about this album, and nice to know that you've done something right."
Elsewhere, Taylor Swift retains her hold on the top spot of the Country Digital Tracks chart with 'Mine.' In just two weeks, the song is closing in on half a million downloads. Other hot digital tracks include the Zac Brown Band's 'As She's Walking Away,' featuring Alan Jackson, which debuts at No. 7, Blake's 'All About Tonight,' coming in at No. 9, and 'Georgia Clay,' the debut country single by Josh Kelley.
Following Taylor on the top Country Digital Tracks chart this week are Sugarland at No. 2 with 'Stuck Like Glue,' Kenny Chesney's 'The Boys of Fall,' Band Perry's 'If I Die Young ' and 'Free' from the Zac Brown Band.
