Country singer Eric Church has taken the world of music by storm. According to on Feb. 19, Church's fourth studio album, "The Outsiders" has debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the week ending Feb. 16. This marks the second time one of his albums has nabbed the top spot.

The album not only debuts at No. 1, but the 288, 000 records sold is only second to Beyonce's self-titled album that sold 310,000 in its second week of release. "The Outsiders" also scored as the biggest week for a country album since Luke Bryan debuted at No. 1 back in August of 2013 with his album "Crash My Party."

The 36-year-old native of North Carolina topped the success of his previous album with the success of "The Outsiders". The 2011 album, "Chief", sold 145,000 which accounted for his best sales week prior to this accomplishment.

The "Frozen" soundtrack, Imagine Dragons, "Night Visions", Lorde, "Pure Heroine", and Katy Perry's "Prism" are some of the other albums rounding out the top 10 of the Billboard 200. Eric Church had the only album making its debut at the top of the chart.
