Posted on 2011-04-22.

Last week saw the release of the hugely anticipated Paper Airplane (Rounder Records), the first album from Alison Krauss & Union Station in seven years. The band’s sixth full-length album was met with universal critical acclaim.

Chart information released Wednesday confirms  Paper Airplane has entered the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at #3. This is the band’s first debut in the Top 5.  The album is also #1 on the Bluegrass Albums Chart and #1 on the Country Albums Chart – a rare feat for an album not in rotation at country radio. Paper Airplane also debuted at a career best of #11 in the UK’s Top 40 Album Charts.
