Chris Young has reason to celebrate as his latest album Losing Sleep has shot to number one on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart.
Young’s seventh album debuted at the top of the chart with 39,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Losing Sleep also debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart.
“I’m excited to have Losing Sleep debut at #1!” said Young. “While I co-produced my last two albums, this is the first record where I co-wrote every song. It’s been amazing to have such a great response to the new music, and I’m looking forward to playing it live on tour starting in January.”
The news comes shortly after Young’s induction into the Grand Ole Opry by his friend and fellow musician Brad Paisley.
Young has been busy promoting losing sleep with multiple TV appearances and touring for the closing week of Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know Tour.
Losing Sleep is Young’s second consecutive studio album to debut at #1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart.
