The legend's new 'To All the Girls …' marks his record-padding 46th top 10 on the Top Country Albums chart
Willie Nelson extends his record for the most top 10s in the nearly 50-year history of Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, as the duets set "To All the Girls…" enters at No. 2. He also claims his best Nielsen SoundScan week and highest rank on the tally in 24 years, as the set starts with 43,000 sold.
The 80-year-old Nelson's incredible top 10 history on Top Country Albums stretches almost to the chart's beginning. He tallied his first such hit with his first entry, "Country Favorites – Willie Nelson Style," in 1966.
Punctuating hit latest feat, the Country Music Hall of Fame honoree rings his best sales sum since "Live and Kickin' " started with 27,000 in 2003. The new album is Nelson's highest perch on the chart since "A Horse Called Music" peaked at No. 2 in 1989.
