Welcoming The Usual Pre-Christmas Superstar LP Releases

Reporter Kelefa Sanneh has a review of all the upcoming albums from country's biggest stars:
It’s a yearly tradition: Summer ends, the fourth quarter looms (after a dismal first three), and the fragile hopes of record executives head south, to Nashville. After 50 Cent and Kanye West gave interviews speculating about whose new album would sell more in its first week, the country-rock heartthrob Kenny Chesney spoke up, politely suggesting that his new album, “Just Who I Am: Poets and Pirates” (BNA) — due out on Tuesday, the same day as theirs — might outsell them both.
