Lady Antebellum’s ‘Own the Night’ Debuts at Number 1

In what might be the least surprising debut of the year, Lady Antebellum‘s new album has ended its first week at the top of the charts — pretty much all of them, in fact.

With sales of nearly 350,000 units, ‘Own the Night’ outpaced its competition by a wide margin, coming in at number one on the country charts, as well as Billboard’s overall Top 200 tally. As an added bonus, it also topped the album sales charts in Canada.

‘Own the Night’ comes on the heels of last year’s triple-platinum ‘Need You Now,’ which spawned the crossover smash title track, and it was preceded with a smart advance promotional campaign that sent the lead single, ‘Just a Kiss,’ to the top of the country charts, as well as the pop top 10 — so its healthy first-week numbers hardly come as a shock.

That said, those kinds of numbers don’t come around that often in today’s market, so the band certainly deserves to celebrate this week. They won’t have time to pop too many bottles of bubbly, however. Lady Antebellum’s busy schedule will put them on the road performing for fans throughout the fall, including an October 1 appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live.’
