Weekly Register: Paisley Brings 'Moonshine…' To The Party
Brad Paisley’s Moonshine In The Trunk debuted with sales of 53K, locking in the No. 1 spot on the Country album chart, and No. 2 on the overall chart this week. Paisley produced the Arista Nashville release with Luke Wooten.
Due to the overall downslide of music purchases (largely due to streaming) comparing current debut week sales numbers to debut weeks in previous years isn’t exactly comparing apples to apples. Nonetheless, here is the info: In April 2013, Paisley released Wheelhouse, which sold 100K and entered at No. 1. In May 2011, This Is Country Music debuted at No. 1 with sales of 153K units.
Meanwhile on the Country tracks chart, Jason Aldean’s “Burnin’ It Down” sold 76K this week for a RTD total of 658K. Darius Rucker had the sweetest Country track debut with “Homegrown Honey” selling 25K. Taylor Swift sits pretty at No. 1 overall in her second week of release with “Shake It Off,” which sold 355K, for a total of 899K.
