Chesney Gets Willie Nelson Back on the Charts

“That Lucky Old Sun (Just Rolls Around Heaven All Day)” has broken onto the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, marking the first time in five years that Willie Nelson has appeared on a Billboard chart:

Willie Nelson is such an iconic figure that it might seem he is always hanging out on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs tally.

But this week’s No. 56 debut of “That Lucky Old Sun (Just Rolls Around Heaven All Day)” — credited to Kenny Chesney with Willie Nelson — is the first chart appearance by the country legend in almost five years. Nelson was last on the survey in January 2004 with another Chesney collaboration, the holiday song “Pretty Paper.”

The debut of “That Lucky Old Sun” expands Nelson’s country singles chart span to more than 46 years, dating back to the March 1962 debut of “Willingly.” “That Lucky Old Sun” is Nelson’s 121st chart entry, and while that sounds like a huge amount, it’s good enough to rank him only fourth among artists with the most entries in the 64-year history of this survey. The top three: George Jones (165), Eddy Arnold (143) and Johnny Cash (135).

“Lucky Old Sun” Tops the Billboard 200 Album Chart

Kenny Chesney’s latest album “Lucky Old Sun” has become his fifth number one album, but with one of his worse opening tallies in years:

“Lucky Old Sun,” Chesney’s 11th studio album, sold 176,000 copies during the week ended October 19, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The last studio album to start so poorly was “Everywhere We Go,” which sold 30,000 copies when it opened at No. 51 in 1999.

His previous release, “Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates,” debuted at No. 3 with 387,000 copies last September. His career-best start was the 551,000 haul for “When the Sun Goes Down” in 2004.

Chesney ended T.I.’s two-week reign atop the Billboard 200, as the rapper’s “Paper Trail” slipped to No. 2 with 132,000 copies.

Congrats to Kenny on another number one!
