The album is her third release to debut at the top of Billboard’s Country Albums Chart, making her one of three artists (Lee Ann Rimes and Gretchen Wilson) in Soundscan history whose first three albums all landed immediately in the No. 1 spot.

Southern Country stylist Justin Moore embodies the soul and character of a young kid from a small town with his tough-talking, straight-shooting brand of country. His single, “Small Town USA,” recently topped both country charts, making Moore the only new artist to have a No. 1 hit in 2009, and the first solo artist to have a song from his/her debut album hit the No. 1 spot since Taylor Swift’s “Our Song” in December 2007. Moore has previously toured with Trace Adkins, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hank Williams, Jr.
