Chris Daughtry Album Sales: 304,000 and Counting

by at . Comments
Daughtry, ChrisWe'll have a longer post later this week on all the latest American Idol album sales, but we wanted to post the first-week numbers for Chris Daughtry's album: 304,000.

That means Chris Daughtry album sales were second only to Jay-Z on last week on Billboard chart, and the fourth-place American Idol finisher's debut was good enough to outsell The Beatles' LOVE remix album, which sold 272,000.

That number also gives Chris the top first week so far this year for an American Idol product, topping the likes of Kellie Pickler, Clay Aiken and several other stars.

Of course, Taylor Hicks and Katharine McPhee still have a chance to beat that mark. Regardless, it's great to see that the Daughtry band and CD are off to a great start.

For Chris Daughtry fans, I thought I would let everyone here know that my new client at my marketing job, Versus (formerly known as OLN), is having him perform at their Invitational for the opening of the bull riding season on January 6th. The event is going to be held at Madison Square Garden and Chris is slated to perform at about 730pm! They are going to air the event on the network, and he is going to be on at that time, so you should check it out!
