ZZ Top have done darn well for being just a “little ol’ band from Texas,” and the guys seem to be getting better and better with time.
ZZ Top’s first studio album in a lengthy nine years, La Futura, enjoyed a major showing on the Billboard 200 chart this week, landing at No. 6 and selling 31,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Congratulations, guys!
La Futura’s first-week sales showing at No. 6 is actually the highest sales week to date for ZZ Top. The last time the Texas trio entered the Billboard’s Top 10 was in 1992 with their Greatest Hits compilation, which topped out at No. 9.
ZZ Top are currently on the road to promote La Futura on a lengthy North Americana tour that runs through Oct. 27 show at Bee Cave, Texas.
