Eric Church released “Chief”, his highly acclaimed third studio album, on July 26, 2011. This Top Shelf album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart and #1 on iTunes across all genres and Eric took time on release day to thank his fans for that honor.
“Chief” sold 145,000 copies its first week, held the #1 spot for two weeks and “Homeboy”, the albums first single, has been Certified Gold by RIAA.
Now, you might be asking, what’s all the fuss – somebody’s gotta be the #1 debut album, right? But “Chief” was not just another #1 debut album. Eric Church wrote another chapter in Country Music History with “Chief’s” #1 debut. I mean, even Billboard comments “Who the hell is Eric Church and how did he sell this many records without No. 1 songs?”
