Thanks to a massive sales increase of 94% Miranda Lambert jumps from #7 to #1 on this week's chart with Platinum, stealing a second week at #1 away from Brad Paisley's Moonshine In The Trunk, which sits at #2 with 69k sold in two weeks. Right behind Brad is Luke Bryan with the Double Platinum Crash My Party. The surprise debut is indie artist Frank Foster with 9,000 fans taking home his Rhythm and Whiskey album, giving him a Top 5 debut, higher than he's ever been before and it's something sure to spark interest from Music Row (it was also good enough for an all-genre Top 20). Chase Rice rounds out the Top 5 with Ignite The Night.
