GRETCHEN WILSON JACKS UP
FIRST WEEK SALES

Not that there was ever any question, but it's now official—the amazing success of Gretchen Wilson's debut CD, Here for the Party, was definitely not a quadruple platinum fluke. Her sophomore album, All Jacked Up, sold 265,000 copies in its first week of release, and as a result, Gretchen debuts at No. 1 on both the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and The Billboard 200, which features artists from every musical genre. In fact, the Redneck Woman sold almost twice as many albums as the #2 artist, Sheryl Crow, whose Wildflower CD moved 140,000 copies. Good going, Gretchen. You've made Pocahontas proud...again!
