Garth Brooks Remains #1 on "Billboard" Country Albums Chart with "Blame It All on My Roots"

Pearl RecordsGarth Brooks spends another week at #1 on Billboard's Country Albums chart with his box set Blame It All on My Roots. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the Walmart-only release sold another 199,000 copies in the past week for a grand total of 681,000 copies total. Like all of Garth's albums, Blame It All on My Roots is not available for digital download. On the overall Billboard 200 Albums chart, Garth sits at #2 behind Beyoncé's self-titled album.

Despite the controversy surrounding Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments in GQ, the Robertson family's holiday album, Duck the Halls, saw a 22 percent sales increase last week with 132,000 copies sold. That's good enough for a #2 finish on the Country Albums chart and #4 on the overall tally. (Editor's note: ABC is part owner of the A&E Network, which broadcasts Duck Dynasty)
