The best he has done was the runner-up spot with his group The White Stripes, but now, he lands his first chart topper with Blunderbuss. It leads four debuts in the top ten of the Billboard Album charts along with country singers Lee Brice, Kip Moore and boy band The Wanted… For more on this chart, head to Billboard here.
