ALL ACCESS sends out high-fives to SVP SKIP BISHOP, National Promo Dir. LESLY TYSON and the entire gang at ARISTA/NASHVILLE, as SEA GAYLE/ARISTA artist JERROD NIEMANN debuts at #1 on the NIELSEN SOUNDSCAN Country Sales Chart this week with 34,000 copies sold in its first week. The album “Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury,” knocks off CAPITOL’s LADY ANTEBELLUM, which is #2 this week after a long run at the top spot.
JERROD’s debut, fueled by the hit single, “Lover Lover,” becomes the second Country album to debut at #1 this year and the first by a male artist.
JERROD’s fans can catch him this week on GAC-TV’s “Top 20 Country Countdown,” on FRIDAY, JULY 23rd and “CMT Insider,” premiering this SATURDAY, JULY 24th. He is also the focus of a feature in this week’s COUNTRY WEEKLY magazine, on sale now.
