Miranda Scores 5th No. 1 Country Album

June 13th, 2014

Billboard — As “Platinum” debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with 180,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, Miranda Lambert becomes the first artist in the survey’s 50-year history to post five consecutive career-opening No. 1s. (All of her albums have additionally launched at the summit).

Lambert passes Carrie Underwood, who’s scored four No. 1s in her first four tries, a still-active streak dating to 2005; Underwood has also debuted at No. 1 with all four sets. The other acts to arrive with multiple career-starting Top Country Albums No. 1s are LeAnn Rimes, Gretchen Wilson (three each), Wynonna Judd, Billy Ray Cyrus, Kellie Pickler and Lady Antebellum (two each).

As previously reported, Lambert concurrently crowns the Billboard 200 for the first time, notching her best sales week and the largest for an album by a female country artist since the week ending Dec. 30, 2012, when Taylor Swift’s “Red” sold 241,000. Lambert is just the 11th female country artist to top the Billboard 200 (which became a regularly published list in 1956). Prior to Lambert, Swift was the last country female artist to notch her first No. 1, having topped the list for the first time on the chart dated Nov. 29, 2008, when “Fearless” bowed at No. 1.

Impressively, each of Lambert’s albums has started with successively a larger debut week than those before. Her first release, “Kerosene,” bowed in 2005 with 40,000. She followed with 2007’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (53,000), 2009’s “Revolution” (66,000) and 2011’s “Four the Record” (133,000).

On Hot Country Songs, Lambert’s new single “Somethin’ Bad,” with Underwood, flies 25-12 with Streaming Gainer honors (710,000 total U.S. streams, up 69 percent, according to Nielsen BDS), while lead “Platinum” lead track “Automatic” bullets for a second week at its No. 4 peak.

Miranda Scores 6th No.1 With ‘Automatic’

Rolling Stone — Miranda Lambert’s Platinum has notched its first chart-topping single. “Automatic,” a nostalgic tune about enjoying life’s slower pace, debuted at Number 26 on the Billboard country charts back in February, and while it rests at Number Three on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, it has already reached Number One on the competing Mediabase chart.

Lambert has had a busy week since the release of her fifth album, Platinum, last Tuesday. She made high-profile appearances on the CMT Music Awards, The View and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, and at the 2014 CMA Music Festival and George Strait’s farewell show in Arlington, Texas, where she joined the King of Country for a surprise rendition of “How ‘Bout them Cowgirls.”

Meanwhile, “Somethin’ Bad” — her hell-raising duet with Carrie Underwood — sits at Number 36, giving Lambert two simultaneous tunes in Billboard’s Country Top 40. So much for enjoying a slower pace.

“Automatic” marks the sixth chart-topper for Lambert, Rolling Stone’s current cover star. To celebrate, she’ll hit the road on July 10th for the start of her Platinum Tour.

Miranda, Carrie On The Billboard Charts

Billboard — On Billboard’s airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart, which Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” leads for a seventh week, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood notch the highest debut in nearly a year-and-a-half, as “Somethin’ Bad” begins at No. 5. It enters Country Digital Songs at No. 1 – becoming Lambert’s first leader on the list (and Underwood’s third) – with 107,000 downloads sold following the pair’s performance of it on the Billboard Music Awards (May 18).

“Bad” makes the best start on Hot Country Songs since Cassadee Pope, the third-season winner of NBC’s “The Voice,” soared in at No. 3 with her cover of Keith Urban’s “Stupid Boy” on the Dec. 29, 2012, chart.

The song previews Lambert’s fifth album, “Platinum,” due June 3; first single “Automatic” continues its rise, returning to its Hot Country Songs peak (7-6). When “Automatic” reached the top 10 on the April 19 Country Airplay chart (where this week it lifts 6-4), it marked the first top 10 by a solo female in two months. “I’m damn glad to have my spot here,” Lambert says. “I’m happy as a little lark. I’ve worked hard to make relationships with radio and my fans. It took a long time to get where I am and I’m thankful that people are responding.”
