Lindy Conant & The Circuit Riders, fronted by missionary, worship leader and singer-songwriter Conant, launch at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Christian Albums chart (dated June 25) with its debut set, Every Nation. The LP bows with 7,000 copies sold in its first week, becoming the first debut album to start at No. 1 on the ranking in 2016.
Notably, all of the set’s sales were digital, as the act, which records for Rogue Music Alliance (RMA), does not have a partnership with a distributor. The album, with all tracks either written or co-written by Conant, was recorded live at Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena, Calif.
