It only took a week for Eric Church’s newest album, The Outsiders, to reach the No. 1 spot both the Billboard Top 200 and the Billboard Top Country Album sales charts with album sales of 287,688. These sales have nearly doubled his previous album, Chief, first week sales.
In advance of the release of The Outsiders, Church was recently profiled on CBS Sunday Morning with footage taken at Church’s remote cabin in the mountains of North Carolina.
USA Today listed The Outsiders as its Album Of The Week on February 11, giving the release FOUR out of FOUR Stars, touting “It’s adventurous and outrageous, full of metallic guitars and funky country skronk but also expresses vulnerability and pain.” The Tampa Bay Times says that the singer/songwriter is “Giving you something new and unexpected: That’s how Church scores his high.”
