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!
