Willie Nelson’s still not dead, and still tearing up the charts.
“God’s Problem Child,” Nelson’s first album of original material in three years, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Nelson unseated last week’s winner, Brad Paisley’s “Love and War.”
Nelson also scored a No. 10 debut on Billboard’s Hot 200 Albums chart.
This is Willie’s 17th #1 record on the Country Albums chart, and sixth Top 10 on the Billboard 200. “God’s Problem Child,” which features a song inspired by the 2016 election and another song written by producer Buddy Cannon’s mother, sold 36,000 equivalent albums, with 34,000 in pure sales.
