Keith Urban Passes Radiohead to Become Top Charting Veteran Artist in U.S.

by VVN Music

Keith Urban holds very strong in the second week of release for his album Ripchord, dropping only from number 4 to 6 on the Billboard 200. The set takes over as the top charting album on the Veteran Artist Top 40 (see below).

Prince dropped only 5 to 7 with The Very Best of Prince while Radiohead is down 3 to 9 with A Moon Shaped Pool.  Look for the Radiohead album to make a big comeback in mid-June when it is released on CD and vinyl.

The only two debuts by a veteran artist go to the Grateful Dead with their July 1978: The Complete Recordings and Red Rocks, 7/8/78. The 12-CD Complete set debuts at 62 while the individual show from the set starts at 177.  The two albums are only available through the band's official site.
