Kenny Chesney's "Live in No Shoes Nation" Number 2 Seller in Third Week of Release

by VVN Music

Kenny Chesney did the unthinkable last week.  He took a live album to number 1.

As we've explained in the past, the live album has a long tradition of being a nice souvenir for fans and, possibly, a contractual fulfilling release, but it rarely does well on the modern day charts.

This week, Chesney did something even more extraordinary.  His live album is STILL the second biggest selling set in the country according to HitsDailyDouble.com in its third week of release with Live in No Shoes Nation only seeing a drop in sales of 36%.

Of course, that wasn't the really big story of the week.  That would be Taylor Swift taking her latest, Reputation, to the top with estimated sales of 1.267 million.  Chesney, in second place, had estimated sales of 32,400.

When just a few extra units are thrown in for streaming, Chesney drops to number 9, down from 6 last week.

Metallica's deluxe version of Master of Puppets was the ninth biggest selling album of the week with 16,100 in sales. With streaming added, it drops to number 25 with a total of 17,300 units.
