Congrats to the entire staff at EMI RECORDS NASHVILLE as artist ERIC CHURCH tops the TOP 200 on SOUNDSCAN this week. CHURCH’s album “Chief,” scanned 144,990 units, making it the second highest selling debut album, for a Country release this year. ARISTA NASHVILLE artist BRAD PAISLEY's album “This Is Country Music” debuted with 152,000 units sold, which is still the biggest Country debut for 2011 (NET NEWS 6/1).
CHURCH said, “We have always put everything we have into making the best records possible. Complete, individual pieces of work that strive to be as different and innovative as they are creative and artistic. It is a journey that at times has led us down the road less traveled. It is very humbling and rewarding to learn that a lot of people decided to follow us down this path. I can't thank my fans enough and look forward to where this trip takes us next.”
CHURCH will continue to promote “Chief” with an appearance on ABC-TV’s JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, on MONDAY, AUGUST 8th at 12a (ET).
