Not that Kenny Chesney needed a new record, but he’s got one! The country artist released his brand new album, Live in No Shoes Nation last week and it sold 219,000 copies earning it the number on spot on the Billboard 200.
According to Rolling Stone, the last live album to debut at number one on the chart was Hope for Haiti Now in 2010.
Kelly Clarkson’s latest album came in under Kenny—she sold 79,000 copies and landed in the number two spot.
Kenny said in a press release about the album:
“It’s such a rush to hear No Shoes Nation in full force. As fast as the nights go down, I didn’t even realize how good they sound – and the energy, the heart and the voices are awesome in the moment – so I wanted to make sure they got to hear what I was hearing during my year off.”
Congrats Kenny! You’ve definitely earned it.
