Shania Twain Still The One: Live In Vegas, a WalMart exclusive CD/DVD set, debuted with 11K units sold, coming in at No. 2 this week. (She wasn’t able to push UMG labelmate Sam Hunt from his stronghold on the top country spot.)
Twain recently announced her first North American tour in more than 11 years entitled Rock This Country. The 48-date run follows her hit two-year residency in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The tour visits Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on July 31. A presale is going on now at ShaniaTwain.com.
Kelly Clarkson’s Piece By Piece landed at No. 1 on the Top 200 with total activity of 97K, including 83K album sales. The Grammy winner also announced her 2015 tour, which will visit her adopted hometown, Nashville, Sept. 5 at the Bridgestone Arena. Tickets go on sale Saturday (March 14).
Other country debuts include Asleep At The Wheel with 4K, and Average Joes’ Mud In The Club Vol. 1, a remixes album, with 3K.
