Montgomery Gentry‘s new Cracker Barrel exclusive album sold over 25,900 copies since its release last week. For Our Heroes set the restaurant chain’s record for first week CD sales, nudging out the previous record holder, Alison Krauss’ 2005 release, Home On The Highways.
In addition to being one of the top ten country albums for the week, For Our Heroes also landed a spot at #11 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each CD will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
MG is spending the summer on Kenny Chesney‘s stadium tour, and on June 23 will receive the rare honor of joining the Grand Ole Opry.
