For my money, Whiskey Myers just released one of the best albums you’re going to hear all year. But, if you don’t want to take my word for it, I’ll just let the numbers speak for themselves.
Self-titled and self-produced, Whiskey Myers notched 42,000 first-week equivalent album units (of which 39,000 were in album sales), topping the Billboard Country Charts with the #1 country album in the world. They bested Jon Pardi’sHeartache Medication at #2 and Sturgill’s Sound & Fury at #3, who came in at 34,000 and 32,000 album units respectively.
But that’s not all…
Whiskey Myers also debuted at #2 on the Billboard Rock Charts, trailing only The Beatles’ re-release of Abbey Road, and #5 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart. Yeah, let’s go ahead and call a Beatles reissue cheating and give Whiskey Myers the defacto title of having two #1 albums on both the Country and Rock charts. Not to mention, the group opened for the Rolling Stones earlier this year. Good luck topping that.
The Whiskey Myers bandwagon is officially full… and it’s about damn time.
