Notable albums include Jason Aldean’s “Night Train,” The “O Brother Where Art Thou?” Compilation and Pistol Annie’s “Annie Up.”

The Pistol Annies may be experiencing some ‘growing pains’ in the trio’s partnership but that hasn’t stopped fans from wanting to own a copy of the their sophomore album Annie Up. The album has now sold nearly 200k copies in 9 weeks on the charts. Jason Aldean experiences a 12% sales incerase with “Night Train.” The album’s title track’s success at radio is certainly helping the Platinum-plus selling album reach more fans while Tim McGraw’s Two Lanes Of Freedom has a nice 4% sales increase this week with sales approaching 400k sold. The album is followed on our rundown this week by the soundtrack for O Brother Where Art Thou?. The Grammy-winning soundtrack (which features “I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow”) experienced a 271% sales increase to bring sales to 7.8m sold (Which is likely more copies than the actual movie has ever sold on DVD or Blu-ray).
