Top 5 Best Selling Country Albums of All Time
Take a guess as to who took home the title for best selling country album. My first guess was George Straight, surely he'd make the top of the list. I was way off! Here is the list of the top 5 best selling country albums of all time. You won't believe who made the list and who didn't make the list!
5. Dixie Chicks - "Wide Open Spaces"
Remember when we all fell in love with "There's Your Trouble" and "You Were Mine"? I still jam out to this album when I need my Dixie fix. The album went 12 times platinum! Can you say "girl power!"?
4. Garth Brooks "Rope in the Wind"
"The River" and "Shameless" both came from this gem of an album which went 14 times platinum.
3. Garth Brooks "No Fences"
This album brought us "Friends in Low Places" and The Thunder Rolls" which we all sing at the top of our lungs every time it comes on right? The album went 17 times platinum.
2. Shania Twain - "Come on Over"
You have to remember people having their first dance to this song right? "You're Still the One" gets me every time! Not only was Shania Twain one of the biggest selling females of all time the woman held her own! Her album went 20 times platinum!
1. Garth Brooks- "Double Live"
Many people will dispute this as the number 1 title because it was a double CD and claim that means it only gets the 10.5 times platinum, however the fact that he made that album go 21 times platinum is saying something. We aren't here to discredit you Garth, keep rocking and selling out stadiums!
