Hard-rockin’ country troupe Whiskey Myers ascended to No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with its new self-titled album, moving 42,000 equivalent units, according to Nielsen Music.

The tally was buoyed by Whiskey Myers’ recent Die Rockin’ Tour, which included a copy of the new album with a select ticket purchase.

Jon Pardi’s highly anticipated third album, Heartache Medication, reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart with 34,000 equivalent units sold, while Sturgill Simpson clocked in at No. 3 with his fourth studio album, Sound & Fury, which moved 32,000 equivalent units.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
