All three acts add their third top 10s.

Whiskey Myers earns its first No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, as its self-titled set bows atop the Oct. 12 tally with a career-best 42,000 equivalent album units earned (with 39,000 in album sales), according to Nielsen Music, the sum boosted by a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with the Texas band's 2019 tour.

Whiskey Myers previously notched two top 10s: Mud (No. 4, 2016); Early Morning Shakes (No. 10, 2014); and Firewater (No. 26, 2011).

Jon Pardi's Heartache Medication starts at No. 2 on Top Country Albums (34,000 units; 23,000 in album sales). Pardi earns his third top 10, following California Sunrise, which launched atop the chart in July 2016, and his first LP, Write You a Song (No. 3, 2014).

Plus, Sturgill Simpson's Sound & Fury ignites at No. 3 on Top Country Albums (32,000 equivalent album units; 26,000 in album sales). Simpson also notches his third Top Country Albums top 10, after A Sailor's Guide to Earth, which arrived in the penthouse in May 2016, and Metamodern Sounds in Country Music (No. 8, 2015).
