Just read over at countrynation.com that Elvis has reclaimed the title of biggest selling solo artist in history. The line at the end of the article said something to the effect of 'you can hear the recording studio being assembled in Oklahoma.' We can wish!

I saw this also. I think all Garth needs to reclaim it would be one album. He wouldn't even have to tour with its release. Does anyone know if a duet album would count towards his total or not?

[QUOTE=jagnikhah]I saw this also. I think all Garth needs to reclaim it would be one album.


Here is the new list (Top Ten only) from the RIAA:
BEATLES, THE
165.5

PRESLEY, ELVIS
117.5

LED ZEPPELIN
106.0

BROOKS, GARTH
105.0

EAGLES
88.0

JOEL, BILLY
78.5

PINK FLOYD
73.5

STREISAND, BARBRA
71.5

JOHN, ELTON
67.5

ROLLING STONES, THE
63.5

I think he would need more than one album to catch up. I think he could move up once they cetrify the Anniversary editions. That would give another 6 million or so to the total.

Yep,

One album would likely not be enough. :( Especially without an accompanying tour.

Hey Garth, get me the keys to the vault at Capitol. I'd be glad to help sort through your unreleased material!

They haven't certified the Anniversary editions yet? Why not?

Ohhhhhh there's hope for new music yet!

I do believe the duet album would count. Spud, I LOVE your idea of raiding the Capitol vault! Maybe we need to barrage Mike Dungan with a campaign suggesting such a thing....

All respect to Garth but Elvis should be King of the top selling artists. Look how much people love him and how long hes been around. I am sure Garth is proud to relinquish the title to Elvis. I just wish this would get Garth back in the studio but I dont think it will make a difference to him at all sadly!
