At the age of 83, Loretta Lynn may be about to have the highest charting album of her career on the Billboard Top 200.
Loretta's new album, Full Circle, is projected to have sales of about 21,000 in its debut week which puts it at number 9 on Hits Daily Double's Building Album Chart. Where Lynn falls is when streaming is added into the totals. Streaming equivalents (1,500 streams per album sold) only adds about 800 copies to her total, dropping the album to a projected number 18 on their Sales + Streaming chart.
If that number and position holds, that would give Lynn her best showing ever on the Billboard Top 200, beating out:
- Van Leer Rose (2004 / #24)
- Honky Tong Angels (with Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette) (1993 / #42)
- Don't Come Home Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind) (1967 / #80)
- Coal Miner's Daughter (1970 / #81)
