Morgan Wallen’sDangerous: The Double Album now holds the Billboard Top Country Albums record for most weeks at number one, for a staggering 51 weeks.
This beats the record previously shared with Luke Combs’ This One’s for You, and Shania Twain’s Come On Over. However, Luke actually snapped his own streak with the released of his sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get.
Big Loud CEO Seth England weighed in saying Morgan was resetting the history books:
“With this milestone, Wallen is resetting country music history books in terms of album success. Each artist on the historical shortlist experienced touring and fandom at this level during their prime.”
I guess all that’s left to see, is just how much longer Wallen’s album can hold the number one spot and extend his lead.
I gotta feeling it’s gonna take a hot minute before anybody beats this one out.

Morgan Wallen Raises $120,000 For Charity With Nashville Shows
After back to back to back nights of sold out crowds at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, Morgan Wallen gave a chunk of proceeds to his charity.
With three bucks from every ticket sold on his Dangerous Tour going to benefit his More Than My Hometown Foundation, Morgan’s three-night stop at Bridgestone last week alone raised over $120,000 that will be put into initiatives for adolescent development, resources and local communities.
“Since my parents fostered and now officially adopted my sister Lacey, I’ve witnessed what love and care can do for a child that didn’t have it before. She has transformed into a confident, trusting and happy kid.
There are many elements that aid in the development and protection of an adolescent’s life, and that is why I created the foundation so a child’s resources are not limited due to their circumstances.”
Morgan’s three nights at Bridgestone featured surprise visits from Ronnie Dunn, Erich Church, Jason Aldean and more.
