Congrats to VALORY/STARSTRUCK artist REBA McENTIRE, whose album, "Keep On Loving You," topped the SOUNDSCAN Top 200 albums chart this week, in all genres of music.
The album sold 95,817 units in its first week of release. REBA now holds the record for the most albums (11 total) to hit #1 on the BILLBOARD Top Country Albums chart. LORETTA LYNN previously held that record with 10 albums.
REBA's album is also the highest debut from a female Country artist in 2009 and it's her first solo studio album to reach #1 on the Top 200.
Kudos are also in order for MCA star GEORGE STRAIT. His "Twang" album sold a total of 61,052 units in its second week out, ranking it #2 in the Top 200 albums and #2 on the Country album chart.
