The artists who performed on Sunday night’s ACM Awards  have seen a significant impact on digital downloads, reports Billboard . The program was the No. 1 most-watched show of the night, directly leading several artists to see jumps on the Billboard charts even though the show took place in the final hours of the most recent Nielsen SoundScan sales tracking week (Monday through Sunday).
Artists seeing a positive impact included The Band Perry, whose new Pioneer  album jumped to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart after the group performed its current single, “Done.” Other artists who saw positive sales increases were Florida Georgia Line , Blake Shelton , Miranda Lambert , Lady Antebellum , Jason Aldean , Kenny Chesney , George Strait , Eric Church , Carrie Underwood  and Tim McGraw  with Taylor Swift .
“We’re thrilled that the ACM Awards audience responded so positively to our broadcast—not only by watching the show itself, but also by purchasing music from so many of its featured artists,” Allen Shapiro, CEO of dick clark productions, said.
Additionally, Luke Bryan’s  “Crash My Party” and Hunter Hayes’  “I Want Crazy,” both new songs that were premiered during the show and released immediately for purchase, received 26,000 and 18,000 downloads, respectively, within just a few hours of going on sale. ACM Awards performers Brantley Gilbert  and John Mayer saw higher chart positions on the Billboard 200 as well.
