"Road" was included after a Billboard policy banning exclusive album titles from the Billboard 200 was altered to reflect recent changes in music distribution.
The only places to buy the Eagles' CD in the United States are Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores, walmart.com and the Eagles' own Web site.
So far, 711,000 copies of the album have been sold.
Britney Spears' latest, "Blackout," which would have been No. 1 if "Road" was not counted, opened at No. 2 with first-week sales of 290,000, Billboard.com said
Coming in at No. 3 is Carrie Underwood's "Carnival Ride," followed by Avenged Sevenfold's self-titled disc at No. 4 and Josh Turner's "Everything is Fine" at No. 5.
