From Billboard’s “Chart Beat”:

Legendary pop singer Tony Bennett achieves his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with “Duets II,” making the 85-year old the oldest living act to reach No. 1. His all-star collaborations album bows in the top slot with 179,000 sold in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The 14-time Grammy Award winner’s previous high on the chart came in 2006, when his first “Duets” set debuted and peaked at No. 3 with 202,000. Bennett has been charting on Billboard’s charts since 1951 and notched his first hit on the Billboard 200 album tally six years later. Until today, the oldest living artist to top the Billboard 200 was Bob Dylan, whose “Together Through Life” debuted at No. 1 in 2009 when he was 67-years old.

  2. Jeez…Hunter’s scaring the daylights out of us. Having to secure win #4 is really impressive as he gets an added chance to the ToC, beating both Fred Vaughn and Todd Giese to earn a spot. Usually when I get worried on champs with three wins, is it usually the case where we’re gonna see a possible spot for a ToC? Mostly no. Hunter is definitely the surprise factor.

    The show was preempted here today due to the recent mass shootings.

    Hunter is not to be slept on, that’s for sure!
