Miranda Lambert‘s fourth studio album, ‘Four the Record,’ is also her fourth album to debut at No. 1 on the country album chart. The ‘Baggage Claim’ singer sold over 133K copies of the album, more than double her previous first week best. Lambert becomes the first country artist in the 47-year history of the album charts to have her first four albums debut at No. 1.

“OK, that’s crazy! When you start out you want to blaze your own trail and set your goals, and I always worry about living up to the standard I set for myself,” Lambert said in a press release. “But I hope it says to every artist who is starting out that if you really go with your heart and stick to your guns and feel okay with exercising your creative license, it will all end up great because you are doing what you believe in.”

On the all genre charts, ‘Four the Record’ places third behind Justin Bieber‘s ‘Under the Mistletoe’ (210K) and rapper Wale‘s ‘Ambition’ (163K). Susan Boyle’s ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’ is fourth with over 132K sold last week. Adele continues to pace the year’s top albums with over 107K copies of ’21′ sold.

Last week’s No. 1 country album, Toby Keith‘s ‘Clancy’s Tavern,’ drops to third on the album chart, behind Scotty McCreery‘s debut, ‘Clear as Day’ (40K). After just two weeks, Keith’s ‘Red Solo Cup’ is already the top selling country single, however, selling over 53K digital copies last week.

Lambert’s 2009 album ‘Revolution’ sold 66K copies in its first week. ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ sold 53K in 2007, and ‘Kerosene’ sold 40K in 2005.
