Motley Crue country tribute album set for 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, is heading for a US top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 chart.

Billboard reports music industry forecasters suggest the set could sell 30,000 copies in its first week.

The project includes performances by Rascal Flatts, LeAnne Rimes, Florida Georgia Line, Darius Rucker, Gretchen Wilson and more.

The Billboard 200's new top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, August 27.

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.
