Taylor Swift claims 2022's Official biggest Americana album with evermore.
Taylor tops the end-of-year Official Americana Albums Chart powered by Sweet Home Alabama with her ninth studio LP, as Bruce Springsteen's 2022 release Only The Strong Survive takes the Number 2 spot. Bruce - known affectionately as 'The Boss' - managed this in less then two months, the record having being released on November 11.
His 21st studio album, Only The Strong Survive also peaked at Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart upon its release last year.
In third place in the year-end list is Phoebe Bridgers, with her second studio release Punisher. The Californian singer-songwriter scored her first Official UK Top 10 album with the record upon its release, debuting at Number 6.
