    Miranda has the #1 album and you put a pic of Garth & Trisha? Also wondering what this year's debut album #s look like. Miranda, Aldean, Blake have over 100,000 any others? PS ❤️ The Weight of these Wings. Pretty impressive sales w/ no press, only 2 tv spots(Fallon/CBS Thanksgiving, $16 price no drastic sales cuts( like some did w/ $5.99), and no radio single support (they dropped Vice even though it sold). Glad for Lambert.
