Whiskey Myers new self titled album sold 39,000 copies in pure album sales, and tallied up a whopping 42,000 streaming credits according to Billboard, and that makes it #1 in country, #2 in all of music in pure album sales, and #6 on the all-genre Billboard 200. Whiskey Myers is in very good company now. Other independent artists that have had #1 country albums include Aaron Watson, Blackberry Smoke and Jason Isbell. Tyler Childers and Sturgill Simpson have also achieved #1’s, but only after signing a deal with a major label.
Released via Thirty Tigers, Whiskey Myers is #1 on the Current Rock Albums chart, and #2 on the overall Rock Albums chart … #2 only because of the reissue of the album Abbey Road by The Beatles which was #1. Good company indeed.
