Zac Brown Band’s sixth studio album, The Owl, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
The Owl moved 106,000 equivalent units, according to Nielsen Music, which was also good enough for No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, one spot behind Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding (149,000 units).
“We’ve been working tirelessly on this album over the past couple years, ensuring every detail is perfect,” said Zac Brown. “We are always pushing ourselves as musicians by blurring genre boundaries and incorporating all kinds of music we are personally inspired by, elevating what we are capable as a group. This album will have something for everyone, The Owl is exciting, raw, and unexpected.”
ZBB has scored five consecutive No. 1 albums since the release of You Get What You Give in 2010.
The new album’s lead single, “Someone I Used to Know,” is currently No. 23 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
