STATS TO RECITE FROM YOUR MASERATI SPORTS CAR

Morgan Wallen's Dangerous: The Double Album (Big Loud/Republic) is on track to spend its first six weeks at #1, a feat not achieved by a country album since Garth Brooks' The Chase in 1992.

While we're digging into these stats, we're duty-bound to point out that Billy Ray Cyrus' debut album, Some Gave All (Mercury Nashville), holds the record at #1 for its first 17 weeks of release. (Brooks' Ropin’ the Wind remains the country #1 leader at 19 weeks but those weren't all consecutive.)

Some Gave All was propelled by the unstoppable monster smash "Achy Breaky Heart," and we still have the Polaroids of you line-dancing to it while blasted on Margaritas, so keep those payments coming or the pics go straight into our IG feed.

Nearly three decades later, Cyrus is also the co-owner of a Song Chart record, with Lil Nas X: Their "Old Town Road" collab (on Columbia) was the #1 song for 19 weeks in 2019. Is that record achy-unbreakable? Stay tuned.
