Veteran country music superstar Loretta Lynn returns to the Billboard Charts with her highest charting album. Full Circle debuts at #19 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart. The album, in its first week, moved 21,000 units; 20,000 in pure album sales. It's only her second album to reach the top 40 on the all-genre list, following her previous high-charter, 2004's Van Lear Rose, which debuted and peaked at No. 24.
The new album also marks her 40th top 10 on the Top Country Albums chart, where it starts at No. 4. She's collected 11 No. 1s on the list.
Moreover, Lynn released a new video for "Lay Me Down," her album-closing ballad with Willie Nelson, from Full Circle. When EW spoke to the icon in advance of the album, she said recording with her longtime friend was not without its challenges. "Willie sent a record to me to do the harmony and stuff - but I can't harmonize with Willie Nelson!" she recalled. "He talks his songs. So I said, 'You want me to do these, you wipe your voice off these and send 'em back. I'll do my part and then give it to you!' I love the way it turned out."
