Billboard Top 200 / Country Album Chart News (Chart issue week of June 23, 2018)

The Billboard 200 chart measures multi-metric album consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Dave Matthews Band Scores Seventh No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart With 'Come Tomorrow'
Dave Matthews Band notched its seventh No. 1 album on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart (BB200), as Come Tomorrow launches atop the tally. The set, which was released on June 8 via Bama Rags/RCA Records, earned 292,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 14, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 285,000 were in traditional album sales — the biggest sales week for a rock album in over four years.

Dierks Bentley made a bow at No.3 with THE MOUNTAIN (102,000 units; 94,000 in traditional album sales), marking Bentley’s ninth top 10 and his best sales week ever. His previous biggest sales frame was scored with the debut week of his last studio set, BLACK, in 2016, when it began with 88,000 sold.
The Mountain also logged the third-biggest overall week, in units, for a country album in 2018. The only larger overall frames scored by country sets this year have been the starting weeks of Jason Aldean’s Rearview Town (183,000 units) and Keith Urban’s Graffiti U (145,000 units). All three sets were enhanced by sales generated by a concert ticket/album sale redemption program. The cost of the album is bundled into the price of each ticket sold online for a tour. After purchasing a ticket, customers received (via email) a redemption offer for the album, where they can redeem the album and have it mailed to them.

Billboard Top Country Albums (Chart issue week of June 23, 2018)
Top Country Albums now ranks the most popular country albums of the week, as compiled by Nielsen Music, based on multi-metric consumption (blending traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA), and streaming equivalent albums (SEA)).
10 digital track sales from an album = 1 track equivalent album (TEA) “sale”
1,500 on demand song streams from an album to one streaming equivalent album (SEA) “sale”.
Nielsen Music compiles the sales and streaming data. Billboard continues to publish pure album sales charts (subscription to billboard biz ), exclusively comprising Nielsen’s sales data.

It marked his seventh Top Country Albums No.1 launching with 102,000 equivalent album units (94,000 in traditional album sales) in the week ending June 14. Both sums are new career bests, surpassing the entrance of his last LP, BLACK, which debuted at No.1 (#2 BB200) on the chart dated June 18, 2016, with 101,000 units (87,732 in traditional album sales).

 Woman, Amen,” the first single from THE MOUNTAIN, topped the Country Airplay chart dated June 16. On Hot Country Songs, it rose 9-7 for a new peak.
 “Today [June 18] is truly a full-circle moment for me, as I am back in Telluride [for the 45th annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival], where this whole project started one year ago,” said Bentley.
“I am most thankful for my fans. They have been engaged in and connected to this recent journey in a way I’ve never seen before.”

Reaching a new creative high, Bentley co-wrote 10 of the 13 new tracks that are unified by themes of presence and positivity, and range in style from textured rock to acoustic folk, feeling both rooted and expansive at the same time.
Produced by Ross Copperman and Jon Randall, Bentley’s ninth studio album features 13 new tracks, including the first single, “Woman, Amen.” Brothers Osborne appear on the lead track, “Burning Man,” with TJ Osborne on vocals and John Osborne on guitar, and Brandi Carlile is featured on the song “Travelin’ Light.”

THE MOUNTAIN’s story began in the Rocky Mountain resort town of Telluride, Colorado, which every summer plays host to a celebrated bluegrass festival. Owing to his well-documented love of the genre, Bentley has attended the festival multiple times over the years, always making a point to slow down and tune back in to the world around him. But after performing on the festival’s main stage in 2017, the idyllic surroundings became more than a much-needed getaway.
“I found myself there, constantly reaching for my guitar,” Bentley said. “It was like a gravitational pull. That town and those people just make you want to be creative, I couldn’t describe it. I was like ‘How do I tell everyone in Nashville this is what I want to write about?’ I realized I couldn’t bring it back, so I had to take everyone out there.”
Returning that August with six of his most trusted songwriting collaborators, Bentley and his fellow ‘Telluwriters’ all bunked up in a small house, explored the area and dug deep into the peaceful, reflective vibes he was feeling. They had five days to work with and were hoping to write eight songs…but ended up with nearly twice that number, forming the core of the record. Bentley returned to Telluride with his production team Ross Copperman, Jon Randall Stewart and Arturo Buenahora Jr to a tucked-away hideout called Studio in the Clouds last November to record. Perched high on a mesa, its tracking room overlooking the endless Rocky Mountain landscape, THE MOUNTAIN rose up in earnest.
“For me it’s the best of both worlds, and it feels like something new. It’s powerful but also happy, with acoustic sensibility mixed in with the big sounds I like to have for the road,” Bentley added. “They are the songs I’d play for somebody to say, ‘This is who I am right now.’”

PROMOTION: Capitol's Dierks Bentley appeared on NBC's Today Tuesday (June 12) and performed " Living," " Somewhere on a Beach" and " Woman, Amen."

Critical reception for Dierks Bentley’s The Mountain:
13 Tracks/Time: 47:13 Amazon UK - UK iTunes -

Lyric Magazine (Rating: Positive) ....‘The Mountain’ is certainly something to get excited about, something Dierks has put his heart and soul into. It’s a blend of musical genres but one that is seamless and flows as an album. It’s part of a new realm of music for Bentley and you can expect more Grammy nominations on top of his 13 to date and plenty of nominations from the ACM, CMA and Billboard Music Awards following this.

Allmusic (Rating: 4 STARS)…. Generally, The Mountain is so skillful and polished, the songs glide by without effort, so it takes a little close listening to realize how well crafted the individual songs are, and how they combine together to make one of Bentley's best records.

Paste Magazine (Rating: 6.4/10) …Wherever there are mountains, of course, you’ll find a valley, and The Mountain sags in the middle, where a couple songs (“Nothing On But the Stars” and “My Religion”) never seem to pick up steam and “Goodbye in Telluride” feels ill-conceived. Its quasi-rapped verses and poppy chorus sound like components of a hit, but they seem at odds with the song’s breakup theme.
Overall, though, The Mountain offers plenty of evidence that whatever creative spirit Bentley felt in Telluride last year, it was real and vibrant and fertile. Across these 13 songs, he sounds refreshed, enlightened and ready for another however many years as a bright spot in mainstream country music.

THE MOUNTAIN’s "great, quality music with depth and sincerity" (NPR, All Songs Considered) has been at the forefront of critics’ mind since its release as Bentley “drove home the idea of an album as a complete body of work," (Rolling Stone).
“His stellar ninth LP…marks one of the most joyful, brazen, and cohesive collections of his career." - Entertainment Weekly
"A star who found the peak by charting his own path." - CBS News

"THE MOUNTAIN offers plenty of evidence that whatever creative spirit Bentley felt in Telluride last year, it was real and vibrant and fertile. Across these 13 songs, he sounds refreshed, enlightened and ready for another however many years as a bright spot in mainstream country music." - Paste
"Make no mistake, this is a record – not a collection of songs or singles. That's just not how Bentley does things." - Rolling Stone

"The best representation of all his skills, from being a true fan of acoustic instruments like the mandolin and banjo, to raising a glass to his partying crowds and delivering arena-sized anthems." - Associated Press
"Nothing and no one can get in his way." - Elle Magazine
“THE MOUNTAIN is a bit heavier, more contemplative and — surprise — completely devoid of ditties. Yet it is not without its joyful moments, and a positive spirit imbues the tracks." - Billboard

"Bentley has crafted a country gem here." - Asbury Park Press
"Over the last 15 years, Dierks Bentley has built a reputation as an authentic artist who often takes fearless stylistic detours with his music. He continues that journey with THE MOUNTAIN." - Music Row

"Bentley moves so effortlessly between radio-friendly country, bluegrass and rock on his new album that his skill becomes impressive and his serenity becomes contagious. Bentley seems unflappable as he tackles a variety of styles and topics, from the seductive 'Nothing on But the Stars' to the good-natured breakup in 'Goodbye in Telluride.'" - Newsday
"He’s making great, quality music with depth and sincerity…it’s music for grown ups and for people dealing with the stuff grown ups deal with. Marriage, family, kids, work, the feeling that you’ve lived maybe half your life and what’s going to happen in the second half and that’s what this record is about, in a very joyful way.” - NPR
"Echoes the inspiring majesty of the Rockies. The Mumford & Sons-esque 'Woman, Amen' abounds with energy, while Brothers Osborne add flair to the rollicking 'Burning Man.' The simmering title-track and the rootsy, jubilant standout 'Travelin' Light’ exude organic authenticity." - PEOPLE 

"The result is a project informed by the weight of 2017 but filled with gratitude for life and what lies ahead. Sonically, it’s a compelling marriage of contemporary and bluegrass sounds." - The Tennessean
“Mature songs about life...Bentley finds peace on THE MOUNTAIN.” - USA Today 

Sugarland with BIGGER (Big Machine/Big Machine Label Group/ UMGN) bounded in at No.2 on Top Country Albums (No.11 Billboard 200; 30,000 units; 26,000 in traditional album sales).

It’s the first new album for Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush since 2010’s THE INCREDIBLE MACHINE, which opened as their third No.1 on the chart (202,711 sold). By 15 June 2011 it made sold over 1-million copies (1,003,723 copies) at retail and at Nov 27, 2011 had reached a tally of 1,079,000.

Bigger is Sugarland’s seventh top five set on the list.
The new set has produced two singles so far: “Still the Same,” which peaked at Nos. 26 and 35, respectively, on Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs, and “Babe,” (featuring Taylor Swift), which hiked 29-16 on Hot Country Songs after surging to No. 8 on May 5 and held at No. 28 on Country Airplay (7.7 million, down 1 percent) after reaching No. 27.

Critical reception for Sugarland’s Bigger:
11 Tracks/Time: 41:53 Amazon UK - UK iTunes -

Entertainment Focus (Rating: 4 STARS) The first half of the album is filled with upbeat numbers. The catchy, sassy On A Roll features Nettles almost rapping on the bridge, whilst Let Me Remind You has a slinky, summery feel that put you in mind of days on tropical beaches…. However, for me the band really shine in the slower songs which dominate the second half of the record. The subtle yet emotional Mother is a lovely ode to the role of mums everywhere, while Babe – the band’s much-talked-about collaboration with Taylor Swift – is full of slide guitars, crashing drums and vocal reverb, and Swift’s breathier tones work nicely with Nettles’ more powerful sound to balance out the bittersweet lyrics….. Overall Bigger is an album that feels like Sugarland never went away, but also shows they’ve grown as artists. Having bypassed the bro-country era, they’ve returned with a record that shows off what they do best – great vocal harmonies, quirky turns of phrase and a real skill of balancing fun, uptempo songs with emotional ballads. It’s an album that will appeal to new and old fans alike and I’m hoping they’ll continue to build on this even more in the future.

AllMusic (Rating: 4 STARS)… Bigger does indeed offer more than its share of big, bright hooks, all packaged in a production to go down smoothly, but between Nettles' slyly shaded, impassioned voice and the duo's complete embrace of both their now old-fashioned
country-pop and their advancing age, the album seems human. This vulnerability may be worn on the sleeves of the sentimental yet sharp "Mother" and the acoustic epic "Tuesday's Broken," but it's evident throughout Bigger, which is why the record is an impressive comeback. Sonically, it gleams like prime Sugarland, but beneath that sheen Nettles and Bush seem mature, both musically and emotionally, in a way they never have before.

Sounds Like Nashville (Rating: Positive) … A versatile release, Sugarland make their triumphant return with Bigger. Their first album since 2010’s The Incredible Machine, the 11 tracks on Bigger further exemplify the duo’s knack at penning songs that strike a chord with the listener while continuing to further the conversation. All the while, Sugarland prove to be a force within the country world as they touch upon topics not often approached within the genre. A welcomed return to country radio, Sugarland’s powerful messages alongside forward thinking production make Bigger an essential listen.

Billboard Country Airplay (Chart issue week of June 23, 2018)

David Lee Murphy and Kenny Chesney with “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” (Blue Chair/Reviver) ascended 3-1 in its 32nd week (dated June 23). It increased 6 percent to 42 million audience impressions in the tracking week ending June 17, according to Nielsen Music.

On the Hot Country Songs chart “Alright” ranked at No.11. The song, co-written by Murphy, Jimmy Yeary and Chris Stevens, marked Murphy’s second Country Airplay No.1 (among six top 10s) and his first in 22 years, five months and three weeks. His first, “Dust on the Bottle,” hit No.1 on the chart dated Oct. 28, 1995, for its first of a two-week reign.
“I loved David Lee’s music when he was making ‘Dust on the Bottle’ and [1995’s No. 6-peaking] ‘Party Crowd,’  and I love it just as much now,” Chesney told Billboard.
“It’s so great hearing his voice on the radio, and I’m honored to be part of this No.1.”
“This one’s really special,” said Murphy. “I’ve never received more heart-warming messages on a song in my life, and to stand there with Kenny and sing it to a stadium full of people singing it with us is unbelievable. [I have] so many people to thank, especially Kenny, for making this happen.”
The gap between Murphy’s No.1s is the second-longest on the Country Airplay chart, which launched Jan. 20, 1990. Vince Gill holds the record, having returned to the penthouse when Chris Young’s “Sober Saturday Night,” featuring Gill, crowned the March 18, 2017-dated chart, 23 years and one week after his own “Tryin’ to Get Over You” (March 12, 1994).
Murphy rewrites the record for longest break between No.1s in a lead role on both songs. He more than doubles Garth Brooks’ mark of 10 years and three months, between “More Than a Memory,” which became the only song ever to debut at the pinnacle (Sept. 15, 2007), and “Ask Me How I Know” (Dec. 16, 2017).
Chesney made his own history, as “Alright” is his 29th Country Airplay No. 1. It ties him with Tim McGraw for the most leaders in the chart’s archives. (Alan Jackson and George Strait follow with 26 each.)
