Johnny Cash Scores His 10th No. 1 Country Album

Even in death, Johnny Cash is a force, and fans continue to buy his albums in droves.

His latest, Out Among the Stars, is a collection of songs his son, John Carter Cash, discovered after the Man in Black died in 2003.

First-week sales totaled 54,000, enough to give Johnny his 10th No. 1 country album.

Out Among the Stars also finished No. 3 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, behind Disney’s Frozen soundtrack and Shakira’s Shakira (which includes a duet with Blake Shelton).

Johnny now has twice as many Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 charts in death as he did when he was alive.
