STAPLETON TRAVELING TO #1 AFTER CMA BREAKOUT

Fellow Nashville Stars Church, Underwood Could Challenge Bearded Breakout for Top Spot

Forget everything you thought you knew about this week's charts, and welcome to the new era. Chris Stapleton’s Traveller (Mercury Nashville) is headed for #1 after his three big CMA wins and a star-making performance with Justin Timberlake. The album, released last May, now sits at #1 at iTunes, natch, while song "Tennessee Whiskey," which Stapleton performed with JT, has flown to #2, behind only the mighty Adele. Traveller will sell more in one day than it had moved RTD.

Stapleton, winner of the CMA Best New Artist and Male Vocalist of the Year, sees his Album of the Year winner, Traveller, surge over 4000% in overnight sales. The album, not even among the Top 200 albums last week, is likely to re-enter the chart at #1. Traveller may best 100k when our album chart is finalized tomorrow.

A surprise release from Eric Church currently sits at #2. Church's Mr. Misunderstood (EMI Nashville) could provide one of two challenges to Stapleton for #1. At #3 is Carrie Underwood's Storyteller (19/Arista Nashville), which has been priced at $5.99 since earlier this week. She will seemingly have the physical advantage as retail struggles to get Church onto the sales floor today and Stapleton's six-month old release may not be stocked at sufficient levels.

Watch this space as our Building Album Chart reflects last night's impact. Other artists benefitting from last night's awards are Little Big Town (#7), Sam Hunt (#8), Miranda Lambert (#10) and Kenny Chesney (#11). Church's 2014 release, The Outsiders, is also among the Top 15 titles at iTunes this morning.

Looks like Carrie would have been #1 if Chris and Eric Church did not blow up:

Chris Stapleton's 'Traveller' Album Heading for No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart After CMA Triumph
By Keith Caulfield | November 05, 2015

The singer's album may re-enter atop the chart, following his three CMA wins & show-stopping performance with Justin Timberlake.

Country singer/songwriter Chris Stapleton is heading for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with his CMA Award-winning Traveller.

The set -- his debut effort -- is basking in the glow of Stapleton's three CMA wins on Nov. 4, in addition to his show-stopping medley with Justin Timberlake. Remarkably, if it does hit No. 1, it would do so by re-entering atop the list after being absent from the tally since September.

Industry forecasters suggest Traveller could earn upward of 100,000 equivalent album units in the tracking week ending Nov. 5 -- with most of those units generated after the start of the CMA Awards broadcast on Nov. 4. More than 75,000 of that sum could be driven by pure album sales. (Also helping Traveller: It's priced for only $6.99 in the iTunes Store.)

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the new Nov. 21-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Stapleton could be No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Nov. 8.

Traveller debuted and (so far) peaked at No. 14 on the May 23, 2015-dated chart, and has been absent from the list following the Sept. 26 tally. The album has sold 96,000 copies in the U.S. through Oct. 29, according to Nielsen Music. Traveller won the CMA Award for album of the year, while Stapleton took home both the best new artist and male vocalist of the year trophies (all three of the categories he was nominated for this year).

In other CMA-related action, Eric Church's surprise new album Mr. Misunderstood could debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The set was commercially released exclusively through the iTunes Store on Nov. 4 without advance promotion. Church opened the CMA Awards, collaborating with Hank Williams Jr. on the latter's new song "Are You Ready for the Country." Church later returned to the show to perform the new album's title track.

CMA Awards co-host Carrie Underwood could make the top three of the Billboard 200 a totally country affair, as her Storyteller could nab the No. 3 slot on the new chart. It debuted at No. 2 this past week, and could move around 70,000 in total units in the week ending Nov. 5.

I LEFT MY CHART IN MUSIC CITY

Nashville Acts Storm Retail Post-CMAs

Thanks to an unprecedented series of events, three Country acts dominate the charts this week.

Chris Stapleton’s career-defining moment on last week’s CMA Awards rocketed his Traveller (Mercury Nashville)—which was released in May—to #1 honors, earning 145k on the HITS Album Sales Chart and 170k on the Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) Chart.

The soulful Nashville singer/songwriter not only won Male Vocalist, Best New Artist and Album of the Year, but also provided the night's biggest performance moment: a chill-inducing duet with Justin Timberlake.

For perspective, Stapleton’s set saw a 4,000% surge and sold more in slightly more than one day than it had moved RTD.

Sorry for OT again)

At ABC, the “CMA Awards” telecast averaged a 3.8/12 in 18-49 and 13.62 million viewers overall from 8 to 11 p.m., winning four half-hours in 18-49 and placing second to “Empire” from 9 to 10. It was down from last year by 16% in 18-49, tying the show’s lowest demo score to date (set in 2012); it’s also off by the same amount in total viewers (from 16.25 million) to what is an all-time low. Despite the lower than usual numbers for the CMAs, this was ABC’s highest-rated night of the television season, and it marked the first time that any network had bested Fox on a night it aired “Empire.”

Chris Stapleton Soars to No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart After CMAs
By Keith Caulfield | November 08, 2015

Following Chris Stapleton’s breakthrough night on the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards, the singer/songwriter earns his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart as his Traveller album makes a spectacular reentry atop the list -- straight in at No. 1.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Nov. 21-dated chart (where Stapleton is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s Web sites on Tuesday, Nov. 10.

Traveller, which is Stapleton’s debut effort, returns to the list after being absent from the chart since September, and initially debuting and peaking at No. 14 in May (It was released on May 5 through Mercury Records). It bounds back in at No. 1 with 177,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 5 (up 6,109 percent from about 3,000 units) according to Nielsen Music. Of the new week's total unit sum, 153,000 were pure album sales (up 6,412 percent from 2,000).

Remarkably, Stapleton’s album sold more in this past week than it had in total since its release in May. Up through the week ending Oct. 29, it had sold 96,000 copies, with its largest sales week registered in its debut frame (27,000).

The surge in sales is owed to how a mass audience finally discovered Stapleton on the Nov. 4 CMA Awards broadcast -- and was clearly moved by what they saw. Until the CMAs, Stapleton had gathered critical praise but was largely unknown to a mainstream audience (He’s yet to earn a top 40 hit on the Country Airplay chart, for example). Still, he has written five No. 1s on the Country Airplay tally for other artists, including Kenny Chesney and Luke Bryan.

On the CMA Awards, Stapleton won all three categories he was nominated for and performed a medley with Justin Timberlake. Stapleton won the CMA trophies for male vocalist of the year, new artist of the year and album of the year (for Traveller). Stapleton and Timberlake sang the Traveller track “Tennessee Whiskey” and Timberlake’s “Drink You Away” (from The 20/20 Experience, 2 of 2).

“Tennessee Whiskey” ranks as the second-largest selling digital song of the week (a No. 2 debut on the Digital Songs chart) with 131,000 downloads sold. “Drink You Away” also debuts on the list, starting at No. 6 with 76,000 sold. Traveller’s title track also enters at No. 40 with 25,000.

Traveller is also the first debut country album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in over four years. The last was Clear As Day, by 2011 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery. It bowed atop the list dated Oct. 22, 2011.

New total: 96k + 153k = 249,000

Chris Stapleton Spends Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart
By Keith Caulfield | November 15, 2015 4:42 PM EST

Chris Stapleton secures a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, as his Traveller effort continues to bask in the glow of the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards. The set shifted another 124,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Nov. 12 (down 30 percent), according to Nielsen Music. It sold another 97,000 in pure album sales (down 37 percent).

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Nov. 28-dated chart (where Stapleton is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s Web sites on Tuesday, Nov. 17.

A week ago, Traveller made history as the first album to reenter the chart at No. 1, as the set jumped back onto the tally after Stapleton’s three CMA Award wins on Nov. 4.

With a second week at No. 1, Traveller is one of only two albums to spend more than a week atop the list in 2015. Earlier in the year, Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights ruled for its first two frames.

Exact sales:

STAPLETON*CHRIS|TRAVELLER ( 1) 96,995 = 2309 609 5971 88108

250k last week + 97k = 347,000 in pure album sales

11/28 Billboard 200:

http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... ntry-album

Chris Stapleton, Traveller - No. 1 — Since Chris Stapleton’s big night on the CMA Awards (Nov. 4), the singer/songwriter’s Traveller album has surged in sales and become the fourth-biggest-selling country album of 2015.

The set, which won the CMA Award for album of the year, has now sold 347,000 copies through Nov. 12.

Ahead of it on the year-to-date country album sales tally is Zac Brown Band’s Jekyll + Hyde (564,000), Sam Hunt’s Montevallo (625,000) and Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights (705,000).

A week earlier, Traveller was the No. 9 seller (250,000 sold), and then a week before that (the frame ending Oct. 29 — pre-CMAs), it was way down at No. 39 (96,000 sold).
