Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line have a lot to celebrate this week. Despite the countless successes the duo has experienced thus far, they reached a new milestone with the release of their new album Anything Goes.
With 197,000 copies of their sophomore full-length album sold in its first week, Florida Georgia Line’s Anything Goes easily took over the Number 1 spot, claiming it from fellow country artist, Jason Aldean. The pair’s first album, Here’s to the Good Times, was released in 2012, peaking at Number 4 on the Billboard 200. The album, to date, has sold approximately 2.1 million copies and still remains relevant on the chart after ninety-eight weeks of sales.
Anything Goes is the third consecutive country album to top the Billboard 200, following Blake Shelton’s Bringing Back the Sunshine and Jason Aldean’s Old Boots, New Dirt. This is the first time in over four years that country albums have taken over the Billboard Top 200 three times in a row (previously occurring from October 9th to 23rd when Zac Brown Band’s You Get What You Give, Kenny Chesney’s Hemingway’s Whiskey, and Toby Keith’s Bullets in the Gun consecutively claimed the top spot).
