In their first showing on the country music charts, platinum-selling band, Sister Hazel, made a strong debut with “Lighter In The Dark” at #4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, #6 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart, #30 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart and #79 on the Billboard 200 album chart. First week sales of the new CD were 8,352 units.
The entire band is beyond excited about our reach into country music,” said Ken Block, Sister Hazel’s lead singer. “What you hear on this record has always been the bread and butter of our sound. We are thrilled that it’s resonating with a new audience and connecting with so many different people.”
Sister Hazel just returned from a two-week media blitz during which they appeared on Voice of America’s “Border Crossings,” Sirius/XM’s “Road Dog Trucking,” “Sandyland” with Sandra Bernhard on “Radio Andy,” and “Downtown Julie Brown;” NASH FM, iHeart Radio, Fox News Radio, Fox Extra, and NBC’s “Today” show.
