Miranda Lambert’s third album Revolution debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart with first week sales of almost 66,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan, a division of The Nielsen Company. She also brought in the highest debut week digital sales for a country female this year.
With the release of Revolution, she becomes one of three country artists in SoundScan history to have each of their first three albums enter at No. 1 on the Country Album Chart. The Sony Nashville artist has seen a 20+ percent bump in first week sales between every album.
Lots of positive press and promotion probably helped the sales figures. She has been busy promoting the album with appearances on big-time shows like Letterman, Good Morning America, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Bonnie Hunt Show, E! News and GAC. Among the publications raving about the project are Rolling Stone, USA Today, and Entertainment Weekly.
After 27 days on the road, Lambert is at home taking a break before heading back out with Brad Paisley’s tour and her own headlining dates.
