Trent Harmon set the type of record this week you’d rather not set.

Twenty-one new albums released on May 19 landed on the Billboard 200 top albums chart.

Trent’s debut album, “You Got ‘Em All,” was not one of them.

That means he’s the first Idol winner ever to have his debut album fail to crack the Billboard 200.

The previous worst showing for an Idol debut album belonged to Nick Fradiani, winner of Season 14.

His debut “Hurricane” debuted at number 121 on the Billboard 200.

And the worst prior to that was “Tesitfy” by Season 13 champ Caleb Johnson, which debut at number 24.

Trent did hit number 34 on the country albums chart, but previous releases by singing show standouts Carrie Underwood (“Greatest Hits at #22), Morgan Wallen (“If I Know Me” at #21) and Scotty McCreery (“Season Change” at #28) did better.

As for the title track, “You Got ‘Em All” is number 40 on the Hot Country Airplay chart.

Trent did get solid reviews from fans when the new album dropped and he’ll be busy with tour dates this summer, including shows at the upcoming CMA Fest. You can check all those out on his website.
