With his The Ultimate Collection jumping from 13 to 6 on the Billboard 200, Garth Brooks has just landed his 18th top 10 album. This is its second week on the chart (dated January 7).
This 18th top 10 breaks Brooks’ tie with Tim McGraw (17) for the country artist with the second most top 10s. George Strait is in the lead with 20.
Brooks’ The Ultimate Collection also leads Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart at No. 1 for the second week in a row. This is his 16th time taking No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart.
The ten disc set was originally released as a Target exclusive on November 11 but was not eligible for Billboard’s charts for its first four weeks. As per Billboard policy, the album fell below the minimum price to be charted – $3.49 for a single disc, or $3.49 times the amount of discs in a multi-disc box set, in a title’s first four weeks of release. The album was priced at $29.99.
