Kenny Chesney’s new album, Welcome To The Fishbowl, has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart after selling more than 193,000 units. This is Kenny’s eleventh consecutive album to debut at No. 1. The album also debuted at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 Chart, beat out only by pop star Justin Bieber’s new album.
First week sales of Welcome To The Fishbowl passed first week sales of his last three albums, including the critically acclaimed Hemingway’s Whiskey which produced five No. 1 singles and a Top 5 hit. “This dramatic increase in sales is a real testament to the strength of his new music, as well as the continued momentum of his career at every level,” Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville Chairman & CEO, said.
Welcome To The Fishbowl has already produced a Top 10 hit with “Feel Like A Rock Star,” Kenny’s duet with Tim McGraw. His current single, “Come Over,” is one of the fastest rising singles of Kenny’s career. Kenny celebrated album release week with a free, live streaming concert as part of the American Express ‘Unstaged’ series as well as performances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and The Today Show.
