29% Increase - Led By Jamey Johnson's Guitar Song
Jamey Johnson's Guitar Song reaches the top of the Nielsen Soundscan Country Top 75 this week moving well over 62,000 units in his debut week.

Three more debut albums made it into the Soundscan Country Top 10 this week, including the compilation package Now That's Country Volume 3, Joey+Rory's Album Number Two and James Otto's Shake What God Gave You.

After a very soft prior week, Country Album Sales are up 29% (or 65,149 units) this week with many superstar album releases slated for the next few weeks.
