Today Mercury Records singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves’ debut album Same Trailer Different Park returns to the No. 1 position on the Billboard Country albums chart with 27,288 albums sold this week making a sales lift of 177% bringing the album’s total sales to 342,640 according to Soundscan.
This marks the second time Musgraves has been in the No. 1 seat on the Billboard Country albums chart; first time being when Same Trailer Different Park debuted No. 1 on the Billboard Country albums chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart last March when the album released.
The impressive sales increase is accredited to Musgraves’ two GRAMMY wins from the 56th Annual Grammy Awards for BEST COUNTRY SONG (“Merry Go ‘Round) and BEST COUNTRY ALBUM (Same Trailer Different Park) as well has her performance of “Follow Your Arrow” during the telecast on CBS.
“Follow Your Arrow” also received a nice lift with a 98% increase this week with sales of 56,359 tracks making it the No. 2 Country track this week raising the total song downloads of “Follow Your Arrow” to 325,377 according to Soundscan.
Also, Musgrave’s first single and GRAMMY-winning song, “Merry Go ‘Round,” received a 84% increase this week with sales of 15,155 to a total of 820,215 according to Soundscan.
To cap off this week, Musgraves’ performance on the PBS long-running series Austin City Limits will air as the season finale this Saturday, February 8. Click here to check your local listings for air time. Starting Saturday fans can stream the performance here.
