Weekly Register: Robertson Family Continues Reign At No. 1

Duck-Dynasty-A-Robertson-Family-Christmas-CountryMusicRocks.net_With turkey day right around the corner, both overall and Country album sales are down two percent from last week. Next week’s numbers will hopefully receive a much needed boost from Black Friday, which continually drives consumers into a state of purchasing frenzy. With many sales starting on Thanksgiving Day this year, the impact of potentially diluting Black Friday will be interesting to watch.

The RobertsonsDuck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas (Universal Music Group Nashville) is the top Country album again (No. 4 overall), selling 60k units this week and 256k units RTD. The Duck Dynasty stars have held onto the No. 1 spot since their debut several weeks ago.

While there are no major Country debuts this week, noteworthy releases include Mandy Barnett’s I Can’t Stop Loving You: The Songs of Don Gibson (CB Music and Rounder Records) at No. 32, selling 2.6k units, and Luke Bryan’s 4 Album Collection (Capitol Nashville) at No. 33 with 2.5k units sold.
