According to Nielsen SoundScan, Eric Church earned his second #1 album on the Billboard Charts with The Outsiders for the week ending February 16th. With sales of 288,000, Church marked the biggest sales week of the year and the biggest since Beyonce released her self-titled album back in December.
This is not the first time that Eric Church has debuted in the top slot. His last studio album, Chief, also debuted in Billboard’s top spot back in 2011. The Outsiders marks the biggest sales for a country album since Luke Bryan released Crash My Party back in August 2013.
Way to go, Eric!
