Zach Bryan triples up in the top three spots of Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums chart dated Oct. 7, becoming only the second act ever to earn the honor.

The singer-songwriter’s self-titled LP leads for a fifth week, encompassing its entire run on the survey so far, with 66,000 equivalent album units earned Sept. 22-28, according to Luminate. His new EP, Boys of Faith, launches at No. 2 with 44,000 units and former leader American Heartbreak dips to No. 3 from No. 2 with 31,000 units.

Bryan joins only Chris Stapleton in having monopolized the chart’s top three. Stapleton did so for 11 weeks in 2017-18.


Bryan now boasts seven career Americana/Folk Albums top 10s, all tallied in just over a year and a half. In chronological order of their peaks: DeAnn (No. 6, February 2022); American Heartbreak (No. 1, 61 weeks, beginning in June 2022); Summertime Blues (No. 2, July 2022); Elisabeth (No. 6, November 2022); All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live From Red Rocks) (No. 3, January 2023); Zach Bryan (No. 1, five weeks to date, beginning in September 2023); and Boys of Faith (No. 2 to date, October 2023).

Bryan ties for the ninth-most top 10s since Americana/Folk Albums began in December 2009. Bob Dylan leads with 30, followed by Neil Young with 25.

Meanwhile, Bryan charts six titles overall on the Oct. 7 Americana/Folk Albums tally, matching his mark for the most by an act in a single week. He first totaled that many on the Sept. 9 and Jan. 14 rankings.

As previously reported, Boys of Faith boys at No. 8 on the all-genre Billboard 200. It’s Bryan’s third top 10, following his self-titled No. 1 and the No. 5-peaking American Heartbreak.

All five Boys of Faith tracks debut on the Billboard Hot 100, led by “Sarah’s Place” featuring Noah Kahan at No. 14. It starts at No. 5 on Streaming Songs with 15.8 million official U.S. streams. It also begins at No. 2 on Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and No. 5 on Hot Country Songs.

Four weeks earlier, Bryan notched his first Billboard 200 No. 1 with his self-titled set, while the LP’s “I Remember Everything” featuring Kacey Musgraves debuted as his first Hot 100 leader.
