CHRIS STAPLETON “NEW CD” TRAVELLER IS STILL CLIMBING IN SALES!

CHRIS STAPLETON “NEW CD” TRAVELLER IS STILL CLIMBING IN SALES!

Chris Stapleton walked into the CMA Awards show last week on a red carpet and emerged walking on water. Or so it would seem.

His rafter-rattling duet with Justin Timberlake – plus the winning of three big awards – has catapulted his album Traveller to the tops of both Billboard’s country albums and all-genres charts. And this after Traveller had already been out for 26 weeks.  Consider Traveller’s sales totals, as reported by Nielsen SoundScan. In the previous week it sold 2,356 copies – this week, 153,428.

The CMA extravaganza was a healthy boost to Eric Church, too. His Mr. Misunderstood album – the title song of which he performed on the show – debuts at No. 3 on first-week sales of 70,905 units.

It bears noting here that the top three albums on the Billboard 200 all-genres chart this week are Traveller, Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller and Mr. Misunderstood, in that order. How often does that happen?

The only other new albums are Chris Janson’s Buy Me a Boat, which bows at No. 4 on sales of 18,536 copies, and LoCash’s EP, I Love This Life (No. 38).

All of which you can hear on local radio!  Like right here on THIS one!
