US Sales Projection Upgraded For Kenny Chesney’s “Live In No Shoes Nation”

The album is now pacing for upwards of 180K in opening week sales.

This Saturday afternoon, Hits Daily Double shared preliminary sales projections for Kenny Chesney’s “Live In No Shoes Nation.” They called for an opening week pure sales total in the 135-155,000 range.

The numbers have since been significantly upgraded.

Hits now expects the live album to sell 179-187,000 pure US copies this week. The album will only receive nominal boosts from TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500), so its consumption total will be in a similar range.

The pure sales figure will be enough for a comfortable #1 bow on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart. The consumption mark will earn Chesney’s album #1 on the Billboard 200.

A concert ticket/album bundle is contributing handsomely to the opening week sales figure. Based on the aforementioned projection, “Live In No Shoes Nation” is on track to receive the second-biggest “bundle boost” of all-time (after P!nk’s “Beautiful Trauma,” which sold upwards of 200,000 first-week copies as part of the bundle promotion).
