The album Tim Mcgraw's former record label bosses shelved for a year is flying high in the U.S. charts - but Adele still rules the Billboard 200.
Emotional Traffic, which was caught up in a legal spat between the country star and record executives for much of 2011, is the highest debut on the new countdown, at two.
Adele's 21 scores an 18th non-consecutive week at number one.
Rockers Lamb of God debut Resolution at three and the 2012 Grammy Nominees compilation enters the chart at four.
Singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson rounds out the top five at five with new album Human Again.
Meanwhile, Adele's reign on the singles chart continues - Set Fire to the Rain spends a second week at number one as Kelly Clarkson bounds to two with girl power anthem Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You).
