Brad Paisley tops the country album sales chart for a second consecutive week with his new release, American Saturday Night. The album’s first single, “Then,” has already become a three-week No. 1. The second single, “Welcome to the Future,” has already zoomed to No. 44 on the MusicRow Country Breakout chart, even though the official impact date was just Monday (7/13).
The good news has continued with a flurry of July RIAA certifications for Paisley, including two recently announced Gold Digital Singles, one for “Then,” and another for the playful smash, “Ticks.” Yet another new certification finds the Paisley chart-topper “I’m Still a Guy” vaulting to Gold, recognizing sales of 500,000 copies. Both “Ticks” and “I’m Still a Guy” are from Paisley’s hit-filled 5th Gear album.
In all, the three July certifications bring Paisley’s total Gold Digital Singles to eight, joining such hits as “Mud on the Tires,” “Alcohol,” “She’s Everything,” “When I Get Where I’m Going,” and “Whiskey Lullaby,” a duet which featured Alison Krauss.
