Chesney Charts High But His Number One Is On Black Ice

KENNY CHESNEY has scored his fifth number one album in America with a collection of songs about his marriage split from RENEE ZELLWEGER.
Lucky Old Sun is also the singer/songwriter's eighth Top Country Albums charttopper.
The album picked up sales of 176,000 copies in its opening week to displace rapper T.I. Paper Trail, which falls to two.
But Chesney's number one stint is sure to be limited to just a week because the juggernaut that is AC DC's Black Ice has sold more copies in it's first day than the country singer did in a week.
U.S. fans rushed out to buy the rockers' new album on Monday (20Oct08), giving the Aussie band a 193,000 sales day. Chart experts expect the groups to have sold more than 800,000 copies by the time the next album chart is released next week (beg27Oct08).
Due to the release date, Black Ice was ineligible for Wednesday's (22Oct08) chart.
Back to this week's chart and Ray LaMontagne scores his best charting and sales week yet as Gossip in the Grain debuts at three, and Metallica's Death Magnetic and Jennifer Hudson's self-titled album round out the new top five.
