Miranda Lambert is no stranger on the music charts—she’s been atop the country singles and album charts multiple times. This week, however, the country star and ACM Female Vocalist of the Year has topped the Billboard 200 for the first time ever.

Lambert released her fifth studio album Platinum on June 3, and it went on to sell 179,000 copies in the week ending June 8, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That sales figure was enough to place her in the No. 1 spot on the all-genre Billboard 200.
