George Strait

George Strait's "Troubadour" is tops. The album is not only the No. 1 CD on the "Billboard" Country Albums chart, it also debuts above every other album any genre on "The Billboard 200." In its first week in stores, it sold 166,000 copies, making it the third time George has reigned over the music world, and the 11th time he's debuted atop the country list.

While "Troubadour" is clearly selling, it's also getting great reviews for its quality, and George himself is thinking it ranks pretty high among his 37 albums.

"I always try to beat the last one or do a little better," he told Dial-Global. "And It Just Comes Natural, my last record, I thought was one of the best that I'd done in years. And you know, I just [thought] it would be a while 'til I could top that, but I think Troubadour is right up there."

George's current single, "I Saw God Today," is also pretty high up there, sitting at No. 2 on the country singles chart.

The second-best album debut of the week belongs to Josh Gracin, who arrives at No. 4 on the country albums chart with We Weren't Crazy.
