According to Billboard.biz, for the first time since 1988, Bon Jovi tops The Billboard 200. Lost Highway sold 292,000 in United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, the rock troupe's biggest one-week sum since Nielsen began tracking sales data in 1991. The Island/Mercury Nashville set is Bon Jovi's third No. 1 album, joining 1988's New Jersey and 1987's Slippery When Wet. Sales were fueled in part by the group's new country fanbase, wrangled in with the 2006 No. 1 Hot Country Songs hit 'Who Says You Can't Go Home' featuring Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles.
