ARIA Reveals Top Country Albums of 2019


The Australian Recording Industy Association (ARIA) have announced who had the highest selling country albums of the year, and it won't come as too much of a surprise to see the hottest name in country topping the sales figures for 2019. What is surprising is that Luke Combs not just took out the top spot, but he did it with an album coming out nearly four years ago.

The 1, 2 Many singers album This One's For You claimed the top spot for highest selling country album of 2019. Not only that, his follow up album What You See Is What You Get - released in November 2019 - claimed the #2 spot. 

While Luke Combs may have dominated the top two spots, it was Aussies that took the next three spots.

Lee Kernaghan will pick up the Golden Guitar for Top Selling Australian Country Album for 2019 with Backroad Nation coming in at #3; while Morgan Evans Things That We Drink Too came in fourth that's been appealing to both country and mainstream fans across Australia.

Rounding out the Top 5 was Keith Urban and his 2018 album Graffiti U

Other albums that were released in 2019 that managed to crack the Top 50 highest selling country albums of last year include: Florida Georgia Line Can't Say I Ain't Country - #6; Brooks & Dunn Reboot - #31; Lady Antebellum Ocean - #43.

Nine Australian artists feature on the list with Keith Urban having the most albums inside the Top 50 (4); and Alan Jackson, Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan all have three albums feature.
