18-year old country superstar Taylor Swift enjoys an impressive debut on this week’s album chart with her sophomore release, Fearless. Nearly 600,000 folks bought or downloaded Swift’s album, making it the biggest selling first week for a country album since The Eagles’ Wal-Mart exclusive last year, which scanned over 700,000 units in its’ first week. Swift was not only on last week’s CMA ceremony (after which just about every artist to perform sees an increase in scans this week), but she is the rare country artist to get love from MTV, a platform which certainly influenced a lot of folks who may not necessarily count country as their favorite genre.

The remainder of the Top 20 is filled with debuts, as the top six albums this week all scan over 100,000 units (indicating that the holiday season is right around the corner). American Idol runner up David Archuleta lands at #2 with his self titled debut, the latest edition of Now That’s What I Call Music! follows behind at #3, T-Pain enters at #4, a holiday album from Enya pops in at #8, Christina Aguilera’s greatest hits album is new at #9, and Seal’s new covers album pops in at #13.
