Sales: Week Ending 01/01/12

From mjsbigblog.com:

It’s the first chart of the new year and it’s always a little scary for albums while being exciting for singles. HDD estimates were released yesterday... Scotty managed to stay in the top 15 on the BB200 and top 2 of Country for 3 months, but it’s time for those singles to help sell things, because HDD has him clinging to top 25 and moving down to 3 on Country.

  1. Scotty's done great thus far. An uptempo single release + Paisley tour should increase CD sales. IMO the best songs on the CD have yet to be released and they're all radio-friendly. Here's hoping for lots of airplay this year.

  2. To be honest this isn't as bad as I thought it would be, but Jan/Feb can be just AWFUL for album sales. I agree it's time for a new single, and that one will help further Scotty's sales. He needs it now to continue the album sales. But, don't forget Scotty has an Ace in the hole! With Idol starting soon, all those fans that might have missed his massive promotional roll out will soon be reminded again. And, I'm 100% Sure Scotty will return to the Idol stage. All winners come back the following year to perform. I know he loves WTTT, so it will be interesting to see what his 3rd single will be. I can't imagine with such good sales and almost platinum that the lable wouldn't push another single. I know he also said he wanted TTWG to sit out there awhile, and it's still doing good. Country songs tend to stew longer than pop songs. I'm not sure what the average rate is for country singers singles to stay before the next one is released for adds. Does anybody know?

  3. He'll release another single soon, I'm sure....I'm also sure it will be an uptempo song. All his uptempo songs would do great on the radio. Scotty is doing so well considering he is brand new...he is doing Fantastic...album is almost Platinum...sales will surely go up during the tour, for I am sure that they will be selling CD's at the concerts. Can't get enough Scotty. Thanks again for posting all the new Scotty news.

  4. Scotty Fans please remember to continue voting for "our boy" on CMT top 20 and GAC top 20 videos. He is #19 on CMT this week so we really need to do our best to get him back at #1. GAC will start the new year on Jan. 13th, but we still need to vote every day so Scotty can hold on to the #1 slot in 2012. WE can do it!!!!

  5. I vote on CMT and GAC for Scotty's videos. Can someone tell me why TTWG's video is not up on CMT for viewing? It makes no sense that you can vote for it, but not view it.

  6. Just saw: "The Trouble With Girls" earned spot #22 on GAC Top 50 Videos of 2011....Yeah!!!

  7. Scotty,
    I have followed you since Feb. 2011 and I have never been disappointed in your singing or you as "the real deal". I waited in line to get you to sign my cds at Best Buy. I am very proud of all you have accomplished without comprising your principles and values. I hope you will release a new single soon. I think "You Make That Look Good" may be a good one. For me, they are all great. By the way, I have all your music, including the i-tunes from Am. Idol, EP album from walmart. I love them all.
    I purchased some copies of "Clear as Day" as gifts for others and treated myself also. I admire and respect you and your family. I went to your birthday bash and it was great. I wish the tour with Brad Paisley was coming to NC. I do believe you have a god given gift to sing. Thank you for the pleasure your singing gives to so many people. I am a huge fan.
    Nancy

  8. It will be interesting to see which song Scotty will choose for his next single. Since he's already had two ballads, this next one will no doubt be up-beat. I had it all wrong, to begin with, as I thought OOST would, for sure, have been his second single. Now, I'm very curious to find out which one is next. If another ballad is in the works after he has an up-beat song, I really like "Back On The Ground". This thing about being seasonally appropriate, narrows down the up-beat songs. Maybe YMTLG??

  12. I hope his next single will be WITC OR WTT,They are both upbeat.I hope we can grt CAD to 1 MILLON,so he can start planning another album,one with some of his own songs on it,wouldn't that be great.We will see Clear As Day go down on the country album charts because there are 5 new albums coming out.

  13. I just love listening to CAD... it is a great album. My favorites keep changing - love them all! His videos on youtube have tons of views and most of the comments are very positive. He has proven himself to be a force in the country music genre. It couldn't have happened to a more stand-up and lovable guy! Congratulations on your current success Scotty and all the wonderful things sure to come your way over the next few years! I'm a big fan!!!

  14. 7:01pm: While voting, I saw to my surprise Scotty go to 27% and James down to 29%. That lasted for two rounds of voting and then changed back to Scotty 26% and James 30% and there it stayed. Also after that I saw the numbers drop. Can't win with that nonsense going on!

  15. re:9:21pm Someone an another site says it hasn't been updated. I guess we'll see!

  16. I am voting. I am voting. But on USA TODAY that first vote is all I was able to cast. I can't seem to vote anymore after that. Every time I try in there it just shows the results and there is no other place to indicate where to cast a vote. Is there someone who can tell what are the rules on this one? It is so unfair that others are able to vote a couple of times and others can't.

    And what about this one person making his own pronounce-ment with a top 5 idol album of 2011? Some or most of those he named never even got any (or if any, maybe once or twice) awards or top votes. Never even know some of them. I think this is his personal choices and he can have them. I see no basis for his conclusions but only to attract people to his web page.

    TYPE IN "BEST IDOL ALBUM OF 2011"
    CHOOSE THE FIRST LINK - YOU WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE FOR SCOTTY. TO VOTE MORE, REPEAT THE PROCESS.

  18. See where Scotty will be performing a concert at The PEC in Lancaster CA on Sunday January 29th 2012. Go see Scotty if you can. Idol chatter posted singles TTWG sold 70000 (378000) ILYTB 26000 (724000) this past week.

  19. IMO it doesn't matter if the next single is uptempo (preferably) or another ballad. What matters is Scotty's ability to sell the songs. Radio is proof that even a bad song can sell tons if the artist is skilled at selling it. Scotty's CD has some great tracks and he sounds amazing singing them. If he practices really "selling" his songs (and he'll have that opportunity on tour), he'll be unstoppable. On the AI tour he "sold" ILYTB to folks who initially disliked or were indifferent to the song. I don't think he's quite there yet with TTWG, but I have faith 'cause I know he's got the skills.

  20. I agree Scotty has an amazing stage presence, and can sell a song. I really want "You Make That Look Good" I think there was a poll on here awhile ago and "You Make That look Good" and "Water Tower Town" won for fan vote of the next single. Donna, do you remember which song the fans voted for in the poll that was on here about the next single? YMTLG has my vote, although the line about painting your toe nails, and your pony tail is a bit corny. It's still my favorite on the album.

  21. Thanks 10:46! It worked like a charm!

  22. I'm sorry, but I had to give up on usa today - couldn't put up with that nonsense either. Either the poll is "fixed" or their system cannot handle the voting, whatever. I'm exhausted!

    My faves on CAD shuffle around all the time and I like all the songs. But I have to go with BTT and YMTLG (even though I kinda wish they rewrote that toenail painting line/part) -- BTT is both lyrically and vocally awesome and I feel like line dancing! :D
