"By the Way, I Forgive You," Carlile's sixth studio album, also arrives as her fourth No. 1 on Americana/Folk Albums.
Brandi Carlile notches her second No. 1 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums chart (dated March 3), as By the Way, I Forgive You, her sixth studio set, starts with 43,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.
Of that sum, 41,000 are via traditional album sales, marking Carlile's second-best sales frame, narrowly trailing only The Firewatcher's Daughter (42,000). That set became her first No. 1 on Top Rock Albums (March 21, 2015).
The new LP also debuts atop Americana/Folk Albums, where it's Carlile's fourth No. 1, following Daughter, Bear Creek (June 23, 2012; 27,000 sold) and 2010's XOBC EP (Feb. 27, 2010; 10,000 sold).
