M_JoshGrobanArtwork“Popera” crooner and a former Grammy nominee Josh Groban grabbed his third # 1 album this week as his fifth release, All That Echoes, debuted on top with 145,000 copies on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. That easily held off new releases from Tim McGraw, rock bands Red and Coheed & Cambria and the latest Now! compilation. Watch for a big shake up next week with the Grammy Awards causing a lot of albums to get big boosts like Album of the Year winners Mumford & Sons who already climb back up four notches. For now, check out the new top ten below.
