Kacey Musgraves has returned to the top of the Billboard Country Albums Chart with her debut album, Same Trailer Different Park. The project sold 27,288 units over the last week, bringing total album sales to 342,640 according to Soundscan. Same Trailer Different Park debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country albums chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart when it was released last March.

The sales lift is accredited to Kacey’s two GRAMMY wins at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards last month. She picked up Best Country Song for her debut single “Merry Go ‘Round” and Best Country Album for Same Trailer Different Park. Kacey also performed her current single, “Follow Your Arrow,” live during the show.

Kacey’s performance also helped boost sales of “Follow Your Arrow.” Sales jumped 98%, making it the No. 2 country track. “Merry Go ‘Round” also received an 84% increase in sales. “Merry Go ‘Round” has now sold more than 820,000 copies.

Additionally, fans can catch Kacey’s performance on PBS’ long-running series Austin City Limits during the show’s season finale this Saturday, February 8. Check local listings for air times.
