At the time of this post, the disc has dropped a bit in each of those categories, but remains the No. 10 most dlownloaded folk disc, the No. 22 most downloaded country disc, and has slipped to No. 267 on the overall downloads chart.
The folk and country chartings are most impressive as, somehow, Balis; disc is out-doing discs from the likes of Regina Spector, Neil Young, Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban. Of course, those discs have been on the charts far longer than Balis' three days, but that's still impressive company.
