Morgan Wallen Breaks Garth Brooks’ Record For Longest Running #1 Country Album

Morgan Wallen is celebrating a massive milestone

Morgan Wallen’s most recent album One Thing At A Time has officially broken the record for the longest-running #1 country album in Billboard 200 history.

One Thing At A Time just celebrated its first anniversary. It was released on March 3, 2023, and occupied the #1 spot for an impressive 12 weeks straight upon its debut. Since then, it has moved in and out of the top spot, but has never dipped below #6. As of this week, it has spent 19 non-consecutive weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 chart – the most weeks ever logged by a country album.

The extensive 36-track album contains Wallen’s smash hit “Last Night” which was the most streamed song of 2023, across all genres. One Thing At A Time also features collaborations with Eric Church, HARDY, and Ernest.

Morgan Wallen takes the title from a major country music icon

The record was previously held by legendary country music artist, Garth Brooks, for over 30 years. His 1991 album Ropin’ The Wind spent 18 non-consecutive weeks at the top.

Ropin’ The Wind was Garth Brooks’ third studio album but his first to debut at #1 on the Billboard chart. It contained Brooks’ version of Billy Joel’s “Shameless” which went on to be a massive success.
