HITS Daily Double


Alan Jackson Stablemate Headed for #1
Time to bottle up that moonshine and weed-whack the yard car. Yep, if early reports from national accounts are to be believed, we’s about to have us a brand-new #1 album next week in the form of Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem (RCA Nashville).

Initial sales point to a first-week total approaching 250k, which should be plenty fine enough to put the Nashville neo-traditionalist and Alan Jackson stablemate in the top chart berth. Dang, that boy can sell him some records, cain’t he?

Also look for strong debuts from Cee Lo (Arista) and Michael Bolton (Jive), whose Cee Lo Green and His Perfect Imperfections and Only a Woman Like You, respectively, should move about 50-60k each for the week, which could put them in Top 10 contention. And don't forget about the Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones soundtrack, which could be a factor as hype for the motion picture heats up.

Well, whatcha waitin’ on, son? Saddle up and cross that prairie deee-vide to tell the kinfolk. We’ll have grub on when you git back.
