Industry experts expect Eric Church 's new album, The Outsiders , to make a big debut atop the Billboard 200 chart next week. First-week sales are expected to be somewhere between 275,000 to 300,000, which would be Eric's best sales week ever. Those numbers would also give Eric the largest one-week sales figures since Beyoncé moved more than 300,000 copies of her self-titled album back in December.
The Outsiders is also expected to rack up the biggest sales week for a country album since Luke Bryan sold 528,000 copies of Crash My Party back in August.
