Taylor Tops 10 Million in Record Sales!!
Oh my Gosh! Taylor has sold more than 10 million albums! Congratulations Taylor on your huge achievement!! We are so proud of you! Read the article below!
Taylor Swift, who The New York Times described as "one of pop's finest songwriters, country’s foremost pragmatist, and more in touch with her inner life than most adults," has surpassed the 10 MILLION milestone for record sales. This 10 million number represents actual full albums sold – in addition, Taylor has sold over 20 million paid song downloads, more than any artist in country music history.
19-year old Taylor, who writes all of her own material, released her now quadruple-platinum self-titled debut CD in October of 2006 on Big Machine Records, and followed it up with the Fearless album two years later. Fearless was the country’s top selling album for the first 33 weeks of this year, and now has sales of more than 4 million copies in the US and Gold and Platinum certifications in fourteen countries spanning five continents.
Taylor’s 10 million albums sold include the following:
Taylor Swift 4,369,749 units US
Fearless 4,020,725 units US
Taylor Swift & Fearless 1,297,059 units International
Beautiful Eyes 256,822 units (Wal-Mart only)
