Motley Crue country music tribute album lands US Top 10 debut

"Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute To Motley Crue", the newly-released collection featuring country music artists performing tracks by the classic rockers, has landed a US top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 chart.

Billboard reports the project enters the chart at No. 5 with first-week sales of 31,000, while also opening at No. 2 on the Top Country Albums chart.

“Nashville Outlaws” includes performances by Rascal Flatts, LeAnne Rimes, Florida Georgia Line, Darius Rucker, Gretchen Wilson and more.

Last month, Motley Crue kicked off their 2-year farewell tour with special guest Alice Cooper.

The band participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge onstage in Virginia Beach this past week while donating $10,000 to the cause.
