Martina McBride is leading the way on the Billboard Country Albums chart with her latest release.  Everlasting is debuting at number one with first week sales of 21-thousand.  She's opening at number seven on the all-genre Billboard 200. Everlasting features the country star's versions of pop and R&B classics, including songs originally made famous by Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, and others. 

Meanwhile, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line are returning to the Billboard 200 top ten, courtesy of their appearances on the Academy of Country Music Awards.
