The Chicks are back in a big way.

The 12-time Grammy winners have the No.1 album in country music this week with Gaslighter, their first new studio release in 14 years.

Upon its July 17 debut, the 12-track release reached No.1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No.3 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. According to Nielsen Music, Gaslighter moved 84,233 equivalent album units, with 71,467 of pure album sales.

Gaslighter, which marks the trio’s eighth studio album, was originally slated to release on May 1, but was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The critically-acclaimed album is centered around lead singer Natalie Maines’ divorce and includes songs such as the lead single and title track, “Julianna Calm Down” and “March March.”
