Congrats to COLUMBIA/NASHVILLE duo MONTGOMERY GENTRY, who set the record for first week sales for CRACKER BARREL's exclusive music program. Their new CRACKER BARREL album, "For Our Heroes," sold 25,900 units last week, which is 35% more than any other prior release in the chain's history.
The album also set a record for best-selling opening day, best selling opening week and best selling of all of the albums in CRACKER BARREL's music collection. The previous first week sales record was set by the 2005 ALISON KRAUSS release, "Home On The Highways."
