Tim McGraw & Faith Hill’s “The Rest of Our Life” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart

After more than 20 years of marriage, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill finally teamed up for a collaborative album, The Rest of Our Life, which dropped on Nov. 17.

According to first-week sales numbers, the duets album was worth the wait for a lot of fans.

The Rest of Our Life debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, selling 104,000 equivalent albums in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. The album also reached No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200.

The 11-song offering features tunes penned by a number of well-known songwriters, including Lori McKenna, Jesse Frasure, Ed Sheeran, Liz Rose, Hillary Lindsey, Brett James, Brett Beavers and more.

The album’s lead single, “Speak to a Girl,” peaked at No. 19 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and earned a CMA nomination for Musical Event of the Year. The album’s title track was released as a single on Oct. 6 and currently occupies the No. 37 spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

Garth Brooks’ CD/book, The Anthology: Part 1, The First Five Years, debuted with 53,000 albums sold, which was good enough for No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
