ZZ Top Earn A Big First
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 Americna tour that runs through Oct. 27 show at Bee Cave, Texas. What ZZ Top song do you never tire of hearing? Tell us in the comments area below! Thanks for the report to Anne Erickson, Gibson.com.
