George Strait serves up another No. 1 album with Cold Beer Conversation, which lands at the top in its second week. Upon release, the country legend’s newest set was eclipsed by Don Henley’s Cass County, which enters at No. 2 in its second week.

Meanwhile, Thomas Rhett’s Tangled Up holds the No. 3 spot with 21K units, nearly tying with Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights at No. 4 — with less than 50 units between them. In a repeat from last week, Sam Hunt’s Montevallo rounds out the Top 5 with 9k.
New arrivals on the country album chart include projects by the Wood Brothers, Lauren Alaina, The Black Lillies, Kinky Friedman and Bart Crow.
This week, Thomas Rhett’s “Die a Happy Man” rises to the top country track in digital sales (No. 15 overall), with 38K, less than 50 downloads ahead of Luke Bryan’s “Strip It Down” (No. 16 overall). Rounding out the Top 5 country tracks are Cam’s “Burning House” (34K, No. 24 overall), Sam Hunt’s “Break Up in a Small Town” (21K, No. 36 overall) and Keith Urban’s “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” (21K, No. 37 overall).
