Do I Trust The Sales Predictions This Time?


Okay, last week on Monday HitsDailyDouble had their early 38% sales numbers and Scotty McCreery's "Clear As Day" was strongly outselling Lady Antebellum's "Own The Night" by 10%. Then their Tuesday FINAL numbers put them just about neck and neck (a 2% difference) and when the SoundScan numbers came out on Wednesday "Own The Night" sold about 15% more than "Clear As Day". Now this week the "Rumor Mill" numbers list "Clear As Day" as 50-55K and "Own The Night" is not even listed at 45-50K. LadyA is currently on tour but their shows this weekend are at Sioux City, Iowa, Springfield, Missouri and Murray, Kentucky, nice venues but not huge album sales producing cities. They won an ACA Award but did not perform on the show whereas Scotty won and performed and was shown prominently on some Idol commercials. So is it safe to assume that Scotty will be #1 Country again this week? I am not underestimating Lady Antebellum this time!

Nevertheless, Scotty's 50-55K number looks very strong and should put him quite close to 700K in total sales. The question now becomes how much inventory is being shipped to retail to cover the remaining weeks of the holiday shopping season to push "Clear As Day" to Platinum certification. Those Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target stores want to make sure those CD's are sitting on those shelves for people to buy as last minute gifts. Scotty's total sales of 680K+ should now push him past Bo Bice (673K) to have the 15th highest selling debut album for an American Idol alumnus. He should push past Taylor Hicks (705K) and Josh Gracin (703K) next week and then sit at #13 behind David Archuleta (765K) and Adam Lambert (829K). Now he is moving in amongst the heavy hitter Idols who have sold close to or over a million in album sales.

  1. SCOTTY IS BLESSING TO ALL IS FANS. I SURE HOPE HIS CD GOES PLATNIUM BY CHRISTMAS OR LEAST BY THE NEW YEAR. ON DECEMBER 15TH SCOTTY IS GOING TO BE AT BEST BUY IN GARNER. THE PEOPLE HAVE TO BUY SCOTTY'S CD AT BEST BUY THAT DAY TO GET IT SIGN. THAT SHOULD HELP SCOTTY GET CLOSER TO PLATNIUM HOPEFULLY.

  3. Are these numbers for US sales only, or for both US and Canada? If anyone knows, a reply would be greatly appreciated.

    Would be great if we (Canadians) could help Scotty achieve platinum too!

  4. Walmart of Carrollton, TX did not have CAD album last Sunday. Went there this WEdnesday and they had only three left. BTW thanks to all the fans who went to WPOC MOST WANTED and cast votes, Scotty is leading again but still close margin. Need more voters, pls.

  5. It is about 11:30 friday night. I just came back from my super walmarts about an hour ago. I bought one CAD and that only left ONE CAD sitting on the shelf. Tomorrow people will be christmas shopping and sunday also and there are no CADs on the shelf at my walmart. There are, however, in 3 different places in the store, at least 40 Lady A albums.

  7. So this has nothing to do wit this post but it does pertain to Scotty. Scotty will be singing the NA at the Carolina Panthers game this Sunday. They probably won't televise the NA cause it's not a big game, but the game is being aired on Fox, and we know how much Fox loves Scotty lol. Always that chance but either way there's always youtube lol.

  8. As far as I know, Canadian sales figures are not included, nor are other countries...this was discussed on another blog and they are saying only US sales are counted.

    On another note...sure hope the stores have or can quickly get more CAD albums. Hope they haven't underestimated the quantity they need.

  14. I convinced my hair dresser to get CAD for stocking stuffers because we were talking about country music and I told her how great the album was and she said she had seen him on Idol but hadn't heard it yet but now she was going to get. I felt it was a job well done.
