The top 10 of the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart is more than a little bit country this week, as a full half of the region comprises country titles. It’s the first time that there are five country albums in the top 10 in nearly a decade.

The country sets in the top 10 on the chart dated June 10 are: Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time and Dangerous: The Double Album (Nos. 2 and 5, with the former falling from the No. 1 slot after spending its first 12 weeks on top), Luke Combs’ Gettin’ Old (No. 7), Zach Bryan’s American Heartbreak (No. 9) and Bailey Zimmerman’s Religiously. The Album. (No. 10). (Country albums are those that have charted on, or are eligible for, Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.)

The chart last had at least five country sets in the top 10 on the Oct. 5, 2013-dated list. That week, Justin Moore’s Off the Beaten Path debuted at No. 2, Chris Young’s A.M. launched at No. 3, Luke Bryan’s former leader Crash My Party was at No. 6, Keith Urban’s Fuse fell from the top spot to No. 8, and Billy Currington’s We Are Tonight debuted at No. 10.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multimetric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new June 10, 2023-dated chart will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on June 6. For all chart news, follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.
