Amarillo Native's Album Remains on Top Country Chart

Amarillo native John Rich's new album by the duo Big & Rich is remaining on the Billboard country album chart.

In the new chart rankings released today, Did It For The Party is now sitting at number twenty-eight on Billboard' top country album chart. The album previously sat at number two on the chart last week, behind Thomas Rhett's Life Changes. In the new rankings, Big & Rich's album was edged out of the top twenty-five by Taylor Swift's Red and Florida Georgia Line's Here's To The Good Times.

The album was edged out Billboard's Top 200 chart, however. The album was previously number nine on the chart last week.

Big & Rich is a country duo made up of Big Kenny and Amarilloan John Rich. The duo is considered to be one of the biggest duos of the early 2000's in country music, behind Brooks & Dunn. Big & Rich achieved notoriety in 2004 for their smash hit "Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)."
