Brett Eldredge Has The Top Sellling Country Album

Brett Eldredge has the top selling album in the country this week, which easily earned him the top spot on the Billboard Country Album chart.

"This is such an exciting accomplishment, and we're going to celebrate it big," Brett tells “Billboard.” "We always celebrate and relish these special moments, because they don't come along every day. I'm so proud of this album. Thanks to everyone who has busted their tail to get this music out there, and thanks to the fans for buying and streaming and coming to the shows. This is for you."

This is Brett’s second album to land at number one on the Country Album chart, following his 2015 release, Illinois.

Elsewhere on the Country Album chart, the late Glen Campbell’s 20 Greatest Hits package moved 11,000 units to jump to number four, more than 17 years after its original release. In addition, his final studio release, “Adios,” which came out in June, re-enters the chart at number 20 this week.
