Kenny Chesney says he can't believe the songs he carried around in a notebook in a backpack for years have resulted in a number-one record.
"Life On A Rock" has debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart with sales of 152,800, according to his label. That gives Chesney his seventh number-one album.
He's second only to Garth Brooks, with 8, for the country act with the most number-one albums on the Billboard 200.
Chesney says his number-one debut with "Life On A Rock" tells him people care about song writing.
