Rascal Flatts Live; Alaina/McBride Sales Updates

On Lyric Street/Hollywood Records

Add Rascal Flatts to the 4th quarter sales parade. Like Big Machine labelmate Taylor Swift, the vocal trio has announced plans to release a live album. Rascal Flatts Live, a full length project, will hit bins on Nov. 8. Only this record isn’t part of the BMLG empire, it is being released on Lyric Street/Hollywood Records. The 10-song collection will offer some of the group’s biggest hits, including “Bless The Broken Road,” “What Hurts The Most,” and “Life Is A Highway.”

According to insiders at Hitsdailydouble.com, Lauren Alaina, Season 10 American Idol runner up is set to shift between 60-65k units this week for her Mercury Nashville/19/Interscope label home. This comes after Idol winner and label mate Scotty McCreery harvested a giant 197k opening last week.

Also bin bouncing is the debut Eleven by Martina McBride on Republic Nashville which insiders peg to sell between 35-40k units. This is McBride’s first outing on her new label since moving from her long time RCA Nashville home. Republic is going the extra mile for McBride, (actually all the way cross-country) with its Eleven Across America train trek to promote the new album and breast cancer awareness.
