Kenny Chesney's new album, Life on a Rock, sold more than 153,000 copies in its debut week, which earned Kenny the top spot on the Billboard 200 album sales chart.
Kenny outsold Canadian crooner Michael Bublé and pop star Justin Timberlake to get the top spot, making it his seventh No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
And that puts him just one chart-topping album away from tying Garth Brooks for the most No. 1s on that chart: Garth scored eight No. 1 albums from 1991 to 2001, Billboard reports .
“The idea that it debuted at No. 1? Well, that tells me people, music fans care about songwriting and what you share," said Kenny in a statement, "about looking back and moving on, something more than just partying and having a good time."
On the country album charts, Kenny scored his 12th No. 1. That's made even more impressive by the fact that Life on a Rock is Kenny's 14th album.
