the eight weeks since its debut at No. 1, Red has sold 2,590,539 copies. And just to make things merrier, Red
is back at the top of Billboard‘s all-genres chart this week despite a strong debut by Bruno

Another volley of applause, please, for Florida

“American Beautiful” (No. 51), Shelton’s “Let
It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”
(No. 57) and “Blue Christmas” (No. 59), the latter with the Pistol
Annies
.

Checking in at No. 2, No. 3 and No. 5, respectively, on the albums chart are Shelton’s Cheers, It’s
Christmas
, Lady Antebellum‘s On This Winter’s Night and
Little Big Town‘s Tornado.

And the No. 2 through No.
5 songs, in that order, are Justin Moore‘s “Til
My Last Day,”
Kip Moore‘s “Beer
Money,”
