Country music star Gary Allen has scored his first number one on the U.S. album chart.

The singer has debuted Set You Free atop the Billboard 200 countdown with 106,000 first-week sales.

Allen's ninth release pips The Lumineers' self-titled debut to the number one spot, while the soundtrack to Pitch Perfect rounds out the new top three.

The 2013 Grammy Nominees compilation enters the chart at four and the Kidz Bop 23 hits package falls three spots to five.
