‘Farmer’s Daughter’ debuted at No. 28Written by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Elliston native Crystal Bowersox’s debut album, “Farmer’s Daughter,” sold 58,000 copies and debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard 200, according to USA Today.
The “American Idol” runner up sold more units than her first place competition Lee DeWyze, but debuted lower on the charts. His album “Live It Up” debuted with 39,000 in sales at No. 19.
The sales are more than predictions made last week that said Bowersox was on track to sell 45,000 to 50,000 copies.
Locally Bowersox’s album sold out at many locations around town. Pat O’Connor, owner of Culture Clash Records said the CD was the largest sale they’ve ever had.
