The country music icon is no stranger to this kind of debut, but there's no way the feeling ever gets old. Not only did McGraw's album go No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart this week, but his new single, 'Shotgun Rider,' is also faring well on the charts, setting the bar high for the rest of the album's releases.
'Sundown Heaven Town' hit stores Sept. 16, and the released tracks from the record --especially 'Meanwhile Back at Mama's,' a duet with wife Faith Hill -- have resonated with fans. The gorgeous, nostalgic song gave McGraw his 50th Hot Country Top 10, and he's one of the few (five, to be exact) country artists to reach this type of success.
Along with his most recent honor of a No. 1 album, the three-time Grammy winner is nominated for two upcoming CMA Awards, including Single of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for 'Meanwhile Back at Mama's.' McGraw also will add to his awards collection in receiving Nashville's prestigious Harmony Award with his wife for their part in influencing Music City's music scene.
McGraw's 'Sundown' sold 71K copies in its first week, followed by George Strait's 'Cowboy Rides Away Live' at 51K.
