Weekly Register: Toby Keith, Jana Kramer Enter Country Albums Chart


Toby Keith

Toby Keith and Jana Kramer are back-to-back on this week’s album charts, and because of streaming figures, they’re pretty much neck-and-neck when it comes to bragging rights for having the week’s highest debut. Keith’s 35 mph Town enters the country album chart at No. 2 with nearly 19K sold, while Kramer’s Thirty-One lands at No. 3 with nearly 18K sold.

However, on the overall chart, which factors in streaming and song downloads, Kramer’s set parks at No. 10 with nearly 22K units, outpacing Keith’s No. 14 position with just under 20K units.
