Chris Stapleton Has the No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart for Second Week
Chris Stapleton is still riding high after his triple CMA Awards wins and memorable performance with Justin Timberlake. For the second week, Stapleton's Traveller album is at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
According to Billboard, another 124,000 album units were sold last week. Meanwhile, Traveller continues to make history on the charts. Last week, it became the first album to reenter the chart at No. 1, and now, Stapleton's CMA Album of the Year winner becomes one of only two albums to spend more than a week atop the chart this year. Earlier in the year, Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights spent two weeks at No. 1 on the chart.
The best-selling first week album by a debut country artist this year, Traveller sold 153,428 units two weeks ago. Traveller also became the first debut country album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in four years.
Stapleton, who is new to the spotlight, admits he has no idea what's next.
"I’ve been in the music business a while, but I’ve never done anything like this," he says. "It’s been a bit overwhelming, but I’m going to do my best to handle it with some degree of grace. I’m gonna keep making music that hopefully I think is good, and whatever comes out of that, that will be fine with me."
Stapleton's current single is "Nobody to Blame."
