Biggest Country Albums of The Year

Posted on 03 January 2013 by Bill West

Taylor Swift Red2012 was another big year for country music.   The Billboard Year End Rankings just came out and although Adele’s 21 grabbed the best selling number one slot for the second year in a row (a record feat) the top ten was chock full of Nashville brewed country.

Taylor Swift makes the cut at number two with Red.  Swift has made the year end list three other times in 2008, 2009, and 2010.

One Direction, Mumford and Sons and Justin Bieber round out the top six (One Direction has 2 albums in the mix) but the rest of the top ten is all country.

Carrie Underwood continues to “blow away” sales numbers with her latest effort which ends 2012 with 1.2 million units in sales, followed by Luke Bryan’s Tailgates and Tanlines, and the underrated “Tuskeegee” collection of duets from Lionel Richie with 1.07 million.  Jason Aldean’s recent release of Night Train took only a few months to sneak into the number ten slot with 1.2 million in sales.

night trainThis was a significant showing for country according to  They state that previously the country genre has only claimed up to four slots and you have to go back to 2002 and 1992 for those successes.

Taylor Swift starts the new year with a number one week with Red topping the Billboard 200 all genres Album chart.

American Country Awards Recognize New Country

Posted on 11 December 2012 by Bill West

AMAsVegas was alive for the 2012 American Country Awards and the usual take on awards for the biggest country stars was turned on it’s ear.

New country music star Luke Bryan put on usual backwards cap  performance and walked away with the most awards in the form of the blue Fender Telecaster trophy.   In fact the backwards cap (trucker or otherwise) looked like a theme for the night with Luke, Lee Brice, Kip Moore and others making the same fashion statement.

Big surprises came in the New Artist category with the award going to the lovable Lauren Alaina over the expected Hunter Hayes and the odd Breakthrough Artist guitar going to a deserving Jake Owen. Some categories seemed a bit forced like the single for new artist award and group/collaboration mash ups.

Still the ceremony lacked the broad star appeal of the CMA or ACM awards with A Listers Taylor Swift, Chesney, McGraw, Eric Church and Blake Shelton all absent.  What remained was a who’s who of artists just breaking through and on the rise.  One wonders what the FOX producers thought of Miranda’s shout out to her husband saying she was TIVOing the Voice.

Indeed, Luke Bryan had a great year and scored deserved recoginiton in at least seven awards.  The most of all the new country song artists.
