Alabama was the biggest country act of the 1980s, so it's hard to believe their new tribute album, Alabama & Friends , marks the highest chart position they've ever held on the Billboard 200 chart. The project, which features Jason Aldean , Kenny Chesney , Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line and more singing Alabama's hits with them, bows at #8 this week. According to Yahoo!

Back then, the charts were based on manual reports from retailers.  Once the system was standardized, country artists like Garth Brooks and Shania Twain began topping the overall albums tally.
