Plus, Russell Dickerson hits the top five and Stick to Your Guns debuts in the top 10.
Carly Pearce is the top emerging act in the U.S., as the country singer-songwriter climbs 3-1 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart (dated Nov. 4). Pearce hits No. 1 on the strength of her debut album Every Little Thing, which opens at No. 4 on the Top Country Albums chart and No. 32 on the Billboard 200 with 15,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, following its Oct. 13 release.
The Emerging Artists chart uses the same formula as the all-encompassing Billboard Artist 100, which measures artist activity across multiple Billboard charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard 200 and the Social 50. However, the Emerging Artists chart excludes acts that have notched a top 25 entry on either the Hot 100 or Billboard 200, as well as artists that have achieved two or more top 10s on Billboard's "Hot" song genre charts and/or consumption-based "Top" album genre rankings.
