It's almost the same bracket. Also, if you compare sales of their first albums after the divorce, Miranda sold more than Blake: TWOTW is Platinum while IIH is Gold. Blake's album after that one, released in 2017, hasn't even gone Gold uptil now. I'm sure Wildcard will at least go Gold. So I think it's fair to say that Miranda's low sales (which I think aren't really low because sales are at an all-time low across all genres) are attributed to other factors than her divorce from Blake.
    If her sales are lower this time it's because she didn't really promoted Out In The Wash and released half the album before the album dropped so people forgot about it and weren't interested in this album.

    Let's just say sales (as a topic for judgment of an artist or comparison between artists) are of greater significance to some music fans than to others, Personally, I'm more interested in the nature and quality of the music, regardless of its level of market penetration. Both approaches are fine - each to their own!

    On the general topic of Blake and Miranda, I'll just say that attempts to present them as a power couple (along the lines of Dolly and Porter, Tammy and George, Johnny and June, etc) could only have limited success, because they seldom collaborated together, either in writing or in performance. There were a few exceptions (the best known being "Over You", which was inspired by the childhood death of Blake's brother), but, in general, their musical styles and aims weren't very similar, and most of the time they followed separate artistic paths. This seems to have been a significant element in their eventual separation. Miranda's song "Holding Onto You" seems to have been an idealized plea for returning to a loved one after touring - but Blake seemed to be increasingly absorbed in his TV role and their meetings seemed to become less frequent. With hindsight, some of the songs on the Platinum album seem to refer to the strains in the marriage. To some fans at least, Miranda's health and appearance seemed to improve noticeably after the break up. I know there are fans who miss the days of the "power couple " - but, with all due respect, I can't say I'm one of them.

    Miranda has always had her own stamp on county music. She was well liked and had her niche before Blake. I also don’t miss the power couple. Miranda is amazing on her own and is making her own mark in country music.

    Sales are down for everyone. She also released a good portion of her music before Wildcard album was dropped.
