Tim McGraw’s New Album Debuts No. 2 on All-Genre Chart

Emotional Traffic beat out by monster album from British songbird Adele.

Why, if it weren't for that British superstar Adele, Tim McGraw would've had the No. 1 album in ALL THE LAND!

Alas, Adele's year-old album, 21— which includes huge hits such as "Someone Like You" and "Rolling in the Deep"—got a big boost in sales when the album was repackaged and put in Target stores last week for $13.99.

Still, Tim's Emotional Traffic sold an impressive 68,000 copies, according to Nielsen Soundscan numbers.

That's good for No. 1 on country charts—his 13th No. 1 on that chart—and No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200, his 14th album in the Top 10 on that chart.

Kellie Pickler's new 100 Proof album had 27,000 in sales, good enough for No. 2 on the country charts and No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart, beating out sales of a new one from Seal.

So Kellie clubbed a Seal.
