Plus, Angelo De Augustine debuts at No. 11.
The set, released via Rounder Records/Concord, debuts at No. 1 on the Bluegrass Albums chart, as well as No. 4 on Americana/Folk Albums, with 10,000 equivalent album units earned, according to MRC Data; No. 4 on Vinyl Albums (5,000 sold on vinyl); No. 9 on Top Country Albums; and No. 82 on the Billboard 200, marking his first entry on the all-genre ranking.
Renewal is the Michigan-born, Kentucky-raised artist's fourth entry on the Bluegrass Albums chart and second No. 1, after 2019's Home, which spent 25 weeks on top, becoming one of just eight sets in the list's history to log a reign of that length or better. It also won the Grammy Award for best bluegrass album this March.
