But the country crooner has not only been busy headlining his Dirt Road Diaries Tour, he also released his new album, Crash My Party, last week. His hard work is paying off with first day sales numbers predicted to nearly triple those of his 2011 album, tailgates & tanlines.
His “Crash My Party” came in at number 1 with 530,855 copies sold. That’s a huge first week sale, better than nearly everyone else in 2013 including Jay Z, Kanye, and Robin Thicke.
The number 2 album, by K. Michelle, sold just 68,o00 copies. Bryan also has an album at number 15, his Tailgates and Tanlines. That collection sold 15,200 copies. Last week’s number, “The Civil Wars,” fell to number 5 after one week.
