It arrived at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart with 122,000 albums sold and No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 all genre Chart with 133,000 total consumption. It took 33 weeks for The Weight of These Wings to reach platinum status. (Fun fact: Every album Lambert has released since her 2005 debut Kerosene has gone platinum).
