Garth Brooks invades Irish Top 20 chart

1 of 1 Good Garth almighty
Good Garth almighty

Returning country superstar Garth Brooks has staked his claim on the new Irish Top 20 album chart with two of his albums crashing into the rundown.

On the singles chart, Pharrell (another cat in a funny hat) makes it six weeks at the top with his runaway smash Happy.

It's a pretty static Top 20 in albumville but Brooks arrives at No 16 with his 2013 six-CD box set Blame it All on My Roots and his 1997 album Sevens is at No 14. There's also a Garth tribute album at No 13.

The Super Bowl has given Bruno Mars a major lift and he flies 28 places to No 12 with Unorthodox Jukebox. Zesty UK band Bombay Bicycle Club's fourth album So Long, See You Tomorrow debuts at No 8.

Meanwhile, some people are still buying the Gary Barlow record - he pops back in at No 20.
