The 22-year-old sold the equivalent of 20,000 copies of her debut album WildHorse in its first week of availability.
That was enough to bump Keith Urban’s “Ripcord” from the top spot on the country albums chart.
Overall, the album was number 20 on the Billboard 200.
RaeLynn actually got the news Sunday, prior to the ACM Awards in Las Vegas, and was able to react when E! Live caught up with her on the red carpet.
“There’s only a handful of females who have debuted at number one with their first record, so I’m just so excited,” she told the site. “This record, I’ve had for five years. And it’s just crazy that it’s coming out and doing well .. I’ve been working on it for so long.”
The only bad part: She couldn’t immediately share the news with her husband, because he’s serving in the military and they communicate via letters.
RaeLynn released a hit single “God Made Girls” and an EP with Big Machine Records, but didn’t get to release a full-length album until switching to Warner Music Nashville last year.
Voice fans have been amazingly supportive of country singers over the show’s 12-season run, but RaeLynn’s only the second country artist from the show to hit number one on the albums chart.
The other was Season 3 winner Cassadee Pope, who recorded first-week sales of 43,000 for “Frame by Frame” back in 2013 and landed at number nine on the Billboard 200.
For those wondering, Season 4 winner Danielle Bradbery’s debut album was 19 on the Billboard 200 and number five on the country albums chart in its first week.
And the debut album from The Swon Brothers hit number six on the country chart and number 28 overall when it was released in 2014.
