Congrats to VP/Promo KEITH GALE and his team at RCA/NASHVILLE as MARTINA McBRIDE scores the #1 Country SOUNDSCAN album this week with 41,457 units of her new slbum 'Shine,' being scanned last week.
It was also good for a Top-10 debut in the Top-200 overall. It's the 4th album of her career to debut at #1 on the BILLBOARD Top Country-Albums Chart.
All in all, it was a pretty good week for Country artists. BIG MACHINE's TAYLOR SWIFT rumbles towards the 3-million mark on her album 'Fearless," as it scanned 39,532 units last week, placing it at #12 in the Top-200. WARNER BROS. artist JOHN RICH's solo album "Son Of A Preacher Man," fuled by his hit 'Shuttin' Detroit Down,' came in at #16 with 30,878 scanned. And right behind RICH, CAPITOL artist ERIC CHURCH had a nice debut, selling 30,590 pieces, good for the #17 spot.
