Chase Rice, Motley Crue Tribute Lead Country Chart

(Undated) — Chase Rice has his first chart-topping disc. The singer’s new studio effort, “Ignite The Night,” is starting its run at number one on the Billboard Country Albums list, with first week sales of 44-thousand. That figure is also good enough to land Chase at number three on the all-genre Billboard 200, behind leader Wiz Khalifa’s “Blacc Hollywood” and the “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack. Meanwhile, the compilation “Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute To Motley Crue” had opening sales of 31-thousand to take the number two spot on Country Albums. It’s falling in at number five on the Billboard 200, after the “Now 51″ collection.
