Singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile is aiming for her second top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as The Firewatcher's Daughter could debut in the region next week. Industry forecasters suggest the set, which was released on March 3 through ATO Records, may earn about 40,000 in equivalent album units in the week ending March 8.

Billboard 200 Chart Moves: OneRepublic Earns Second Million-Selling Album

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Billboard 200's top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, March 11.

The Firewatcher's Daughter is Carlile's first release for ATO Records after a string of release for Columbia Records, including her first top 10 set: 2012's Bear Creek (which debuted and peaked at No. 10).

The only other title that will likely debut in the top 10 next week is Kelly Clarkson's Piece by Piece, which is heading for the top two. The RCA Records release might bow with around 90,000 units.
