NEW YORK (AP) - Chris Stapleton’s debut album shot straight to the top of the Billboard charts following his critically acclaimed performance at last week’s Country Music Association Awards.

Stapleton’s “Traveller” sold 177,199 equivalent albums since Wednesday’s show, where he won three awards and had a memorable performance with Justin Timberlake.

The album sold more in the past week than it has sold since its release in May. Last week, the album was not in the Top 200 of Billboard’s 200 album chart, though it is No. 1 this week.

Stapleton, a respected songwriter who has written hits for Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Luke Bryan and more, won male vocalist, new artist and album of the year at the CMAs.
