Maren Morris’s much-anticipated album “Girl” rocketed to the top of the Billboard Country Charts as soon as it debuted. Her stunning 46,000 equivalent albums unit sold was the factor that propelled her for that top spot.
Grammy-winning country star Maren Morris beat out her fellow artists Luke Combs, Florida Georgia Line, and Dan + Shay. Of those figures, 25,000 were traditional sales. It is an amazing feat for a country album, one that made a mark on history.
‘Girl’ broke the record for the largest streaming week ever for a country studio album by a woman with approximately 24 million streams in its first week. It also marks the first number 1 debut by a woman on Top Country Albums of 2019. And, this is the first since Carrie Underwood’s ‘Cry Pretty’ that was released last year.

Morris was ecstatic when the announcement was released.

“I am blown away by the support this last week. My fans were already screaming the lyrics at the show the day after the album came out. I am so shocked and thankful to have broken this record for country music.”
She is currently on the North American leg of her “GIRL World Tour,” and she is already grateful for the warm reception that her fans have given her.
