– Scotty McCreery will have the top selling country disc in the U.S. when the charts are out Thursday as "See You Tonight" led the pack. The disc, his third overall, debuted in sixth on the overall chart with 52,000 units sold.
That is a big drop from his first disc. "Clear As Day" was first on the charts in 2011, selling 197,000 in its first week.
Pearl Jam had the number one selling album in the U.S. as "Lightning Bolt" sold 166,000 units. Country rootsy band The Avett Brothers were fifth with "Magpie and the Dandelion," selling 58,000 units.
Willie Nelson was ninth with "To All the Girls," selling 43,000. This was Nelson's highest-charting album since 1982, and only his second top 10 set ever. Nelson, 80, was last in the top 10 with 1982's "Always on My Mind," which spent four weeks at number two.
