My husband said the songs seemed slower and more mellow. I felt the same. I felt like Traveler had some radio friendly songs and I'm not sure this one does.

    Also, is this two-part album release going to be a trend now? I read an article about Kelsea's new album and I think she said it would most likely "not all come out at once". I really don't like this way of releasing music. I know that Chris's Volume I is only one or two songs shy of being a "full" album, but I guess labels are trying to think of new ways to release music with the crappy sales markets.
    Yeah it seems like a lot of labels are coming up with new ways to share the music now in days, I know Sam Hunt and his crew are going the route of releasing multiple singles before releasing the album, so it seems everyone is trying new ways of sharing the music.

    I think the only way album sales are going to increase for anyone is if they withhold the music from the streaming services for a few months so that you have to buy it to hear it. I know that Adele and Taylor are anomalies when it comes to sales, but it sure as heck works for them. I don't think anyone else is going to see million selling debut weeks, but it would still help established artists not be hit so hard. A 200,000 sales week with the streaming climate is incredible. I cringe to think what Carrie's next album might sell the first week after seeing Brad's 25,000 debut week for Love & War. Granted, she still has oodles more star/selling power than Brad, but that doesn't mean she still won't see a huge drop from Storyteller's first week.

    I am OK with a low first sales week, but if her sales would just stay steady then it would be OK, it is still surprising that storyteller hasn't reached the 1 million in pure sakes mark.
