Kenny Chesney’s ‘Born’ Begins as His 22nd Top 10 on Top Country Albums Chart

Kenny Chesney banks his 22nd top 10 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart as Born opens at No. 5 on the survey dated April 6.

In the week ending March 28, the set, released March 22, earned 27,000 equivalent album units in the U.S., according to Luminate. With 18,000 sold, the LP also starts at No. 1 on Billboard’s all-genre Top Albums Sales chart, where it’s Chesney’s 12th leader.

On the all-genre Billboard 200, Born enters at No. 20, marking the Tennessee native’s 18th top 20 title.

Chesney co-produced the 15-song album with longtime collaborator Buddy Cannon.

Born follows Chesney’s Here and Now, which arrived as his 17th No. 1 on Top Country Albums in May 2020. He’s tied with Garth Brooks for the third-most leaders on the 1964-launched tally. George Strait has notched a record 27 No. 1s, followed by Willie Nelson with 18.

Meanwhile, Born lead single “Take Her Home” bounds 32-19 for a new high on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Country Songs chart, up 99% to 2.6 million official U.S. streams. On Country Airplay, it lifts 13-12 (16.8 million in audience, up 8%).

New Top 10s

Chayce Beckham’s debut Hot Country Songs entry, “23,” hops 12-8 with 6.4 million streams (up 2%). The 2021 American Idol winner also scores his first Country Airplay leader with the song (6-1; 28.2 million, up 22%). It’s the latter list’s first No. 1 solely written by the act that recorded it since Taylor Swift’s “Ours” in 2012.

Plus, Parker McCollum earns his fourth Hot Country Songs top 10 as “Burn It Down” climbs 11-10. The track, which the singer-songwriter from Conroe, Texas, co-authored, drew 6.3 million streams and sold 1,000. On Country Airplay, it bumps 7-6 for a new best (23.5 million, up 2%).
