Brad Paisley Grabs No. 2 on Billboard 200 as Everyone Bows to Lady Gaga


As previously reported, Lady Gaga sold 1.11 million copies of “Born This Way” and thus achieved the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200. No surprise there.

What is quite a surprise is that Country star, Brad Paisley scored the No. 2 slot with the debut of his “This Is Country Music” album selling 153,000 copies. It’s Paisley’s third album to land at No. 2, following “Time Well Wasted” (2005) and “American Saturday Night” (2009). He can perhaps be happy with No. 1 on the Country Albums chart, though.

The past weeks have seen the same person at number one for quite some time, but Adele’s “21” got pushed all the way to No. 3 with 126,000 sold.

The rest of the Top 10:

  • No. 4 – “Glee, the Music: Season Two, Volume 6”
  • No. 5 – “Maybach Music Group Presents Self Made Vol. 1”
  • No. 6 – “Now 38”
  • No. 7 – The New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys compilation/collaboration album “NKOTBSB”
  • No. 8 – Foster The People’s “Torches”
  • No. 9 – Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda Party”
  • No. 10 – Mumford & Sons’ “Sigh No More”
