Congratulations are in order for Luke Bryan. The ‘Country Girl (Shake It for Me)’ singer’s new album, ‘Tailgates and Tanlines,’ is not only the top-selling country album, it’s number two on Billboard’s overall top 200 albums chart.
‘Tailgates’ is Bryan’s first chart-topping album, outpacing 2009′s ‘Doin’ My Thing,’ which peaked at number two on the country charts and number six on the top 200. With first-week sales of more than 145,000 units, it’s the second highest-selling debut for a country artist this year, behind only Brad Paisley‘s ‘This Is Country Music.’
Merle Haggard suffered a bit of a health scare over the weekend, when an illness forced him to cancel a show in Ft. Worth, Texas and sent him briefly to the hospital.
Fans of the 74-year-old country legend can rest easy, however, because he’s heading home to California, and although his spokesperson didn’t say what put him under the weather, the short length of Haggard’s hospital stay has to be taken as a good sign.
After letting personal problems derail his career for most of the aughts, Ty Herndon made a triumphant return with 2007′s ‘Right About Now,’ and he’s kept going strong since.
Herndon’s comeback, which continued with 2010′s ‘Journey On,’ should only gain momentum in the coming months because his plans include the completion of his seventh studio album, as well as another collection of Christmas favorites.
