Another week, no more concerts to report. Everybody seems to be writing, in studio, or doing free concerts to promote their albums. But, we have a nearly daily number’s thread so here it is.
Update: Carrie Underwood now has 6 (SIX!) platinum selling singles. Country doesn’t tend to sell as many downloads as Pop (people tend to buy the albums), so that makes it even more impressive. Here is the list from Yahoo Chartwatch.
1. “Before He Cheats” 3.158M (3x plat)
2/ “Jesus, Take The Wheel” 1.783M
3. “Cowboy Casanova” 1.583M
4. “All-American Girl” 1.327M
5. “Undo It” 1.011M
6. “Last Name” 1.003
