Kenny Chesney’s latest offering, Cosmic Hallelujah, is heading towards a number one debut on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart.

Country superstar Kenny Chesney is on track for his eighth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters. Sources say his latest release, Cosmic Hallelujah, could launch with over 80,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 3.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the new Nov. 19-dated Billboard 200 chart — where Chesney may bow at No. 1 — is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Nov. 6.

Chesney has previously led the Billboard 200 with Life on a Rock (in 2013), Hemingway’s Whiskey (2010), Lucky Old Sun (2008), The Road and the Radio (2005), Be As You Are: Songs From an Old Blue Chair (2005), When the Sun Goes Down (2004) and No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems (2002).

It’s another number one hit for Kenny Chesney as his duet “Setting the World on Fire” with P!NK topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart this week:

Penned by Ross Copperman, Matt Jenkins and Josh Osborne, “Fire” is the second single from Chesney’s 17th studio album, Cosmic Hallelujah, due Oct. 28. Debut single “Noise” peaked at No. 14 on Hot Country Songs and No. 6 on Country Airplay.

“Fire” marks Chesney’s 23rd Hot Country Songs No. 1, and his first since the survey became an airplay/sales/streaming hybrid chart, splitting from the solely radio-based Country Airplay chart, on Oct. 20, 2012. The track rebounds 3-1 for a fifth week atop Country Digital Song Sales with 35,000 downloads sold in the week ending Oct. 6 (up 32 percent, likely sparked by the new album going up for preorder), according to Nielsen Music. It holds at its No. 3 high on Country Airplay (41.8 -million impressions, up 3 percent) and reaches the Country Streaming Songs top 10 (11-9; 2 million U.S. streams, down 5 percent).

“It is so rare to find songs that are truly in the moment like ‘Setting the World on Fire,’ ” Chesney tells Billboard. “When you add Pink, you get a definite charge of two people on the brink. She helps bring the listener into the moment. At a time when the world is pretty overloaded, to hear something so fresh, and a moment so perfectly captured in a song, it’s hard to resist. Finding the song was awesome and -getting Pink to sing on it was incredible.”

Kenny Chesney has released four songs from The Big Revival and every one has reached the top of the charts, including the latest single “Save it For A Rainy Day.”

Kenny Chesney scores his 26th No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart (dated Oct. 3) as “Save It for a Rainy Day” jumps 4-1 in its 14th week with 48 million audience impressions (up 10 percent), according to Nielsen Music. Chesney ties Alan Jackson and George Strait for the second-most leaders in the chart’s 25-year history. Tim McGraw leads with 27 No. 1s.

The midtempo “Day” is Chesney’s fourth Country Airplay leader from his album The Big Revival.

The set has sold 419,000 copies to date.

“Wild Child” Hits Number One!

Kenny Chesney’s latest single “Wild Child” has just gone number one on the Billboard chart!

Kenny Chesney’s “Wild Child” hits No. 1 on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Singles charts – marking the first time since Hemingway’s Whiskey that Chesney has seen his first three singles top the charts.

It is also the very first No. 1 for Grace Potter, who shared a GRAMMY nomination with Chesney for “You & Tequila.”

In a cover story for Billboard, Chesney drew a comparison between “Wild Child” and bro country songs: “Over the last several years, it seems like anytime anybody sings about a woman, she’s in cutoff jeans, drinking and on a tailgate — they objectify the hell out of them! […] But I’m at a point where I want to say something different about women”.

He told Taste of Country that he wasn’t searching for another Grace Potter duet, but when he finished writing the song, he knew it was unavoidable. “When you write about women, the best place to start is their spirit, and there’s not a woman that has a better free spirit than Grace Potter”.

At a recent event at BMI, Kenny Chesney was on hand along with the songwriters for “American Kids” and “Til It’s Gone” to celebrate both songs reaching number one back to back.

Rodney Clawson, Luke Laird and Shane McAnally wrote “American Kids,” the first single from Chesney’s “The Big Revival” album. Clawson, David Lee Murphy and Jimmy Yeary penned “Til It’s Gone.” All of the men were present Tuesday at BMI where their publishing companies lavished them with praise and commemorative plaques to celebrate the occasion.

The writers had many thank yous to say to Chesney for recording their songs.

“Kenny is the soundtrack to our lives,” said McAnally. “The fact that he recorded any of my songs at all blows my mind. … I’m just so blessed I get to do this for a living.”

Chesney said he knew he wanted to record both songs as soon as he heard them.

“I had a vision of what I wanted (album) ‘The Big Revival’ to be,” Chesney said. “I didn’t want to do what I had done, and I didn’t want to do what everyone else was doing. I had a small target to hit.”

When McAnally played him “American Kids,” Chesney said he knew in seven or eight seconds that he wanted to record it.

“I thought it was a song that I could wrap my album around,” Chesney said. “You have no idea how much fun it is to sing on stage and I’m so happy that for the rest of my life I get to sing it.”
