Capitol Nashville’s superstar trio Lady Antebellum scored three spots in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart this week as their two studio albums, Need You Now and Lady Antebellum, were joined by the group’s newly released iTunes Session at the top.
With Neilsen SoundScan reporting sales approaching 18,000, Lady A’s iTunes Session landed the biggest week’s sales of any iTunes “Session,” “Live From…” or “Originals” ever released. This week their current single, “Our Kind Of Love,” works its way into the Top five on the country radio charts.
The trio’s current release, Need You Now, racked up weekly sales of 32,000 copies, bringing total sales of the album close to the 2.5 million mark and landing the album at No. 2, just behind labelmate Trace Adkins’ newly released Cowboy’s Back In Town. With 123 consecutive weeks on the chart, Lady A’s self-titled debut landed at No. 10. Both Lady A albums seem to have gotten a boost from this week’s release of iTunes Session.
Fans will have the opportunity to catch Lady A perform in the coming weeks with appearances scheduled on ABC’s Good Morning America from Central Park this Fri., Aug. 27 as well as ABC’s CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock special airing Wed., Sept. 1. The trio will also perform on the star-studded Stand Up To Cancer Telethon Fri., Sept. 10 airing simultaneously on NBC, ABC and CBS. The commercial-free special raises money for the fight against cancer.
