Country Star Chris Stapleton Is Enjoying A Second Week At The Top Of The U.s. Album Chart With His Debut Record, Traveller.
The singer/songwriter scored a giant sales boost thanks to a successful night at the Country Music Association Awards earlier this month (Nov15), when he picked up three of the top trophies and had a headline-grabbing duet with Justin Timberlake.
Although Traveller was released in May (15), it soared to the top of the Billboard 200 chart following the CMAs, and it has stayed there for a second week, with another 124,000 units sold.
Fellow country star Eric Church, who unexpectedly released a new album the day after the CMAs, moves up a spot to number two with Mr. Misunderstood, while British star Ellie Goulding's new record, Delirium, debuts at number three.
The Weeknd's Beauty Behind the Madness and Tim MCGraw's Damn Country Music round out the new top five, respectively.
