It’s a huge month for country music, as Jason Aldean and Taylor Swift are both posting huge numbers for their new albums.

Aldean’s Night Train opus scored a whopping 409,000 units sold in the first week of release, landing him at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart.

Even more impressive is the fact that Taylor Swift’s Red, which hit stores this week, is expected to sell at least a million copies in the first seven days, putting her well ahead of Jason by the time next week rolls around.

Swift moved 262,000 copies of the record on Monday alone, putting her at #1 in a total of 32 countries across the globe.
