Underwood’s album sales are the highest for a country record since October 2011, when Lady Antebellum’s “Own the Night” sold 347,000. In 2012, only Madonna’s “MDNA” has had a bigger debut than “Blown Away,” having sold 358,000.

Norah Jones’ “… Little Broken Hearts” comes in behind Underwood at No. 2 this week with 110,000. Rounding out the top five are the new “Now 42” compilation with 95,000, Adele’s long-running “21” with 77,000, and B.o.B’s second album, “Strange Clouds,” with 76,000.

Have you bought any of the top-five Billboard albums from this week?
