Tim McGraw Tops Country Chart, Number Two On Billboard 200
Tim McGraw is leading the way on the new Country Albums chart with his latest effort, "Two Lanes Of Freedom." Billboard.com says fans picked up 107-thousand copies of the disc in its first week out to propel it to the top spot on the chart. But Tim is falling a little short on the all-genre Billboard 200. He's entering that list at number two behind Josh Groban. Groban's new release, "All That Echoes," saw sales of 145-thousand last week to easily land at number one.
"Two Lanes Of Freedom" is McGraw's first album under his new contract with Big Machine Records. The set features the hit singles "One Of Those Nights" and "Truck Yeah." It's Tim's 14th Country Albums chart-topper, and marks his 15th time in the top ten on the Billboard 200.
