A big congrats to UMG (UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP)/NASHVILLE SVP ROYCE RISSER, VP/Promo DAMON MOBERLY and the rest of the MERCURY crew as SUGARLAND has the No.1 Country album debut of 2008. The duo’s new album, “Love On The Inside,” sold 316, 600 units, giving it the #2 slot on the Albums Chart and #1 on the Country Albums Chart. MILEY CYRUS had the #1 spot on the Top-200 with her new album, "Breakout."
SUGARLAND's KRISTIAN BUSH and JENNIFER NETTLES were obviously very excited to hear the news: “We are over the moon! We've been waiting as patiently as possible to get this album out to our fans. Now I'm just ready for someone to turn in one of those platinum tickets!,” exclaimed NETTLES.
The lead single off the album, “All I Want To Do” is #2 on the MEDIABASE Country Chart and the video has been #1 on CMT.com for 8 consecutive weeks and iTunes.com for 3 weeks straight.
