Eric Church The Top Selling Country Artist Of 2014

Eric Church has put up some impressive sales figures over the past 12 months. He's ending the year as the top-selling country artist of 2014. The singer's most recent release, "The Outsiders," logged the best first-week sales for country album, with more than 288-thousand copies sold following its February 11th release. That's also the fourth-best opening week among all albums released this year, behind Taylor Swift's "1989," One Direction's "Four," and Coldplay's "Ghost Stories." "The Outsiders" debuted at number one on both the Billboard 200 and the Country Albums chart, and also topped the Canadian Albums chart. The album has been certified Platinum for total sales surpassing the one-million mark.

"The Outsiders" has yielded four hit singles, including the chart-topper "Give Me Back My Hometown." That track, which Eric co-wrote, is up for two Grammys -- Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song -- while the disc is a nominee for Best Country Album. Earlier this week "The Outsiders" got the nod for Album of the Year at the American Country Countdown Awards.
