Lady Antebellum Scores #1 Album
September 21, 2011

Lady Antebellum returns to the top of the chart this week as their new album, Own The Night, scores a #1 debut with 347,500 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It is the group's second #1 album, and it's the largest start for any Country release since Taylor Swift's Speak Now bowed with 1.05 million copies in November 2010. Adele's 21 remains in the #2 slot this week with 119,000, and Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV falls from #1 to #3 with 116,500. The rest of the Top 10 contains four new debuts, starting with Country singer Brantley Gilbert at #4 with Halfway to Heaven, selling 51,000. The album actually re-entered the chart after it was reissued last week by Valory Music. The formerly independently-released set, now distributed by Universal Music Group, spent 71 weeks on the Country Albums chart from April 2010 until August of this year, according to Billboard.com.

Meanwhile, Staind bows at #5 with their new, self-titled album, shifting just over 47,000 in the first week. This gives Staind their fourth Top 10 album. George Strait's Here For A Good Time stands at #6 with 42,800 sold, and Dream Theater bows at #7 with A Dramatic Turn Of Events, moving just under 36,000 units. It's their second Top 10 set. Jay-Z and Kanye West occupy the #8 slot with Watch The Throne, shifting 35,700, and The Devil Wears Prada bows at #9 with Dead Throne, starting with 32,400. Finally, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' I'm With You fills out the #10 spot with 32,000 sold this week.

Just outside the Top 10, Anthrax bows at #11 with their comeback album, Worship Music, moving 28,500 copies. Primus also made their long-awaited comeback with Green Naugahyde, entering the chart at #14 with 24,400.
