After his performance with Chris Stapleton on the CMA Awards (Nov. 4), JT's 'Drink You Away' has been serviced to country radio.
In the week following the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards (Nov. 4), the aftereffects of Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake's duet performance of the former's "Tennessee Whiskey" and the latter's "Drink You Away" continue.
Mercury Nashville has already reaped benefits with Stapleton. His Traveller re-enters the Billboard 200 (dated Nov. 21) at No. 1 (marking the chart's first-ever re-entry at the summit), up by 6,109 percent to 177,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 5, according to Nielsen Music. It also vaults 25-1 on Top Country Albums (153,000 in traditional sales, up 6,412 percent). Traveller track "Whiskey" re-enters Hot Country Songs at No. 1 (likewise the chart's first No. 1 re-entry) and he has a new single at country radio: "Nobody to Blame" debuts on Country Airplay at No. 46 (2.2 million in audience).
