The milestones keep coming for Concord's Avett Brothers. Even though they won't have a major-label album out until next year, they've already cracked the top-half of the Billboard 200 album-sales chart. The Avetts' new mini-album "Second Gleam" (Ramseur Records) sold 7,552 copies in its opening week, good for a debut at No. 82 -- which is a 52-spot improvement over their chart peak for last year's "Emotionalism."
Once they get Columbia's machinery behind them, who knows how high they'll go?
