Brantley Gilbert Has No. 4 All-Genre Album
“Country Wide” single fuels sale of more than 50,000 copies in one week for deluxe version of Halfway to Heaven CD
At age 26, Brantley Gilbert is catching fire, landing at No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard 200 album chart with more than 50,000 copies sold of the Halfway to Heaven Deluxe album.
Brantley also finds himself at No. 2 on country albums charts, second only to a monster first week of sales for Lady Antebellum’s latest, Own the Night.
Brantley has been kicking around for several years, but a big hit, "Country Must Be Country Wide," and a deal with Taylor Swift's label group seem to have launched the Georgia native, well, countrywide.
Brantley drew big crowds during a week of in-store appearances for the album launch at Best Buy and Walmart stores in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas and Indianapolis.
"I am so excited about how well everyone has responded to this album. It means the world to me," Brantley said in a statement.
