Brett Eldredge Tops 'Billboard' Top Album Sales, Top Country Albums Charts

Brett Eldredge released his self-titled album on Aug. 4, and the country singer's fourth studio album has officially topped Billboard's Top Albums Sales and Top Country Albums charts.

The album also debuted in the runner-up spot on the Billboard 200 chart, with Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. coming in at No. 1.

Brett Eldredge was preceded by its lead single, "Somethin' I'm Good At," and each of the album's twelve tracks was co-written by Eldredge.

"Some of the best memories of my music career have been celebrating big moments, we celebrate and enjoy them all," the singer said, via Taste of Country. "I literally have a bottle of champagne in my hand right now! I'd like to say thank you to everyone who worked so hard on this album, and most importantly I want to thank the fans who have been streaming and buying songs, from the first single to the full album. Cheers everyone and sincerely, thank you!"

The 31-year-old also discussed new single "The Long Way," explaining that it details the kind of love he hopes to find.

"It's about getting to know somebody more than just on the surface, getting to know somebody deep down to their core," he said. "It's more than just taking the long way around their town, it's through their imagination. It's them telling you everything about where they came from. You want to know every single detail — where they wrecked their bike the first time, where their parents fell in love, the lot where the car they drove in high school is sitting. I think this song says don't be afraid to have that conversation, don't be afraid to get to know that person."
