As expected, Kenny Chesney’s new album Hemingway’s Whiskey debuted at the top of the album charts this week, selling 182,000 copies. That’s up from his last album Lucky Old Sun, which sold 176,000 in 2008.

Kenny blew the competition away. The second place finisher, Lil Wayne, scored 109,000 copies and the Zac Brown Band landed at number three with ‘You Get What You Give’.

Congrats on the number one album Kenny!

    Def. not his best cd. Couple good songs. Little dissapointed he didnt write a lot of the songs considering it was such a personal album. I love Kenny and have been going to his shows for over 6 years, I just think it’s not his best work. Def some good ones, you and teq, hemmingways whiskey, coastal, a few number ones. Hopefully hell take these songs and put them in his show to switch it up a bit. I am happy for him but just a little dissapointed. Best Album: Be As You Are. Cant wait for the tour this summer though!

    Excellent CD! I love the different sounds he put together on this album. You can tell he put a lot of time into selecting the songs because they are all fantastic in their own way. No doubt he will get numbers ones out of this CD. This album is incredible and his band is amazing as well. Absolutely looking forward to some of his concerts this year. Hopefully I can see him more than once to make up for not seeing him last year. I love this CD!!!

    If you guys are looking for real rock and real blues, buy the new Zac Brown CD. Most of the songs on this CD are depressing. I know its hard for most Kenny fans to admit his mistakes. I am a big fan as well, but I can admit when my favorite artists slip a little.

    Wow…and I see you have a tune written by one of my faves JTX…that’s why the cd is so hip…

    This is a FANTASTIC cd. I without a doubt do not think there was any part of this cd that was a mistake! It was very well put together with a GREAT mix of music! But, music is very personal to each and every one of us so we all will see it differently. I just had to say how I felt about this one because I really do like it that much!!
