It’s been a while since a country artist topped Billboard‘s all-genre Top 200 albums chart, but Thomas Rhett has accomplished exactly that with the debut of Life Changes.

The album sold more than 123,000 copies in its first week, according to his record label, making it the first country album to top the all-genre chart since Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know debuted at No. 1 last year. It’s also the first of Thomas’ albums to hit the chart’s top spot. His last two, Tangled Up and It Goes Like This, made it to No. 6.


“Unforgettable, the second single from Life Changes, is on the radio now. The superstar has show scheduled through November. Check out a list of dates here.
