Dave Matthews scored another #1 album selling 266,000 in its first week — according to Nielsen SoundScan. Away From the World has become the sixth straight record to reach #1.
“The act’s last album, 2009′s “Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King,” started with a more robust sales sum: 424,000. In fact, “Away From the World’s” opening figure is the band’s smallest launch for a studio release since 1996′s “Crash” bowed at No. 2 with 254,000.
Little Big Town’s “Tornado” No. 2 start gives the country quartet its highest charting album ever — and its best sales week (113,000). Hot off the success of its first No. 1 Country Songs hit “Pontoon,” the act also nets its second No. 1 on the Country Albums chart with “Tornado.” (Billboard)
