Lady Antebellum’s ‘Own the Night’ Debuts at Number 1

In what might be the least surprising debut of the year, Lady Antebellum‘s new album has ended its first week at the top of the charts — pretty much all of them, in fact.

With sales of nearly 350,000 units, ‘Own the Night’ outpaced its competition by a wide margin, coming in at number one on the country charts, as well as Billboard’s overall Top 200 tally. As an added bonus, it also topped the album sales charts in Canada.

Martina McBride is one artist who seems to have learned this lesson well — instead of booking just another tour as part of the promotion for her descriptively titled eleventh album, ‘Eleven,’ she’ll be embarking on an 11-stop, cross-country train ride.
