However, they came late to the party, but they made the party. I'm talking about Lady Antebellum's "747"... and, Garth Brooks"Man Against Machine" -- rolling in at 10 and 9 respectively. 

Blake Shelton's "Bringing Back the Sunshine" is #8 -- Dierks Bentley's "Riser" ranks at #7 -- Kenny Chesney's "The Big Revival" is sixth... Miranda Lambert's "Platinum" #5.
