The Zac Brown Band reached their #1 album sales this week with "Uncaged" after it’s jump from 2 to 1 in Billboard’s top 200. According to sales reports submitted to Nielson Ratings, the band sold approximately 48,000 units this week.
Surprisingly, that was the lowest sale for a #1 album since February of 2011, with Nicki Minaj's "Pink Friday" selling 45,000 units. The music scene has seen tremendous sales, particularly with Adele's '21.’
Considering that "Uncaged" is a true Country cross over, this marks the second time that Zac Brown has hit the # 1 album sales with the same album on two different ocassions. "Country Strong," weak sales, and no releases by any major artist to contest Zac's Browns #1 album have led them to remain on the top.
The Zac Brown are making Country Music look good. "How about them cowboys.”
