Eric Church Hits No. 1 With New Album “The Outsiders”

Biggest sales week of his career.

It’s pretty in to be an Outsider these days, as it turns out.

Eric Church’s highly anticipated fourth album, The Outsiders, which hit stores Feb. 12, sold 288,000 units in its first week to land at No. 1 across all genres, according to Billboard. It’s his biggest album debut so far, and the highest album sales since December, when Beyonce’s self-titled album moved 310,000 units in its second week. It’s also the biggest country debut since Luke Bryan’s Crash My Party arrived with 528,000 in first-week sales.

Previously, Eric’s acclaimed 2011 album, Chief, earned the singer his first No. 1 album, with sales exceeding 145,000 units upon release.
