    BA first week predictions

    I just thought it would be better to make a thread

    May 2, 2012

    Carrie Underwood’s poised for a #1 debut. Her new 19/RCA Nashville album, Blown Away, will top next week’s chart with estimates of between 275-295k, according to one-day sales reports from retailers busy packing their bags for next week’s NARM convention in L.A.

    Great debut!! Can't wait for the Idol boost and weekend rush!

    This is amazing! Yay! I'm happy. Thank you to everyone for supporting Carrie by purchasing her new album. Carrie can always count on her loyal fans to lead her to success. Well deserved! Blown Away is an amazing album. Thank you for posting, Manchs.

    Again, with her performance tomorrow on Idol, sales should just continue to increase through the weekend. Hoping for about 310k.

    As I said in the other thread, I'm hoping for the album to secure a 300k opening, perhaps 310k.

    Anything in the ballpark of 300k is an amazing first week. It's nice to see a great estimate based on first day sales.

    She’s the one Idol that keeps on giving.

    Hits to her record labels, that is. 19/Arista Nashville country crossover queen Carrie Underwood’s Play On, her third album and first since 2007’s Carnival Ride from the 2005 American Idol champ, is headed for a first-week bow at #1, with a total anywhere between 300-350k.

    Thanks for the list Cary. Nice to see how these numbers compare to other artists this year. Very very impressive and they should increase with the Idol appearance.. So much so that Blown Away could surpass the first week sales of both Play On and Some Hearts!

    Thanks Cary! I am hoping BA could sell a little more than predicted, but the numbers currently are quite decent!

    Didn't Adele have the highest selling album of 2011? Well I would like to see our Carrie achieve that in 2012!

    Thanks Cary.... Wow how many times have I typed that over the years... THANKS CARY.... LOL
    Way to put things into perspective my friend....
    Unlike some Albums from last year BLOWN AWAY is actually selling.... Carrie doesn't have to give her music away because it's worth something... Let others pretend to sell a MILLION in the first week.... Carrie doesn't have pretend talent... She has once in a lifetime God given talent that she combines with a middle American work ethic that's gonna make her music last for generations and generations... Carrie is the kind of a talent where her legend will only grow and grow.... For HDD to predict about 300,000 in there first prediction is incredible in this day and age.... And they always underestimate Carrie.... Everyone has always underestimated Carrie.... Underestimate at your own peril because this little farm girl from CHOCOTAH OKLAHOMA has BLOWN AWAY all predictions since she won AI...
    THEREFORE RUSSERDAMUS SAYS....

    LET THE CRITICS HAVE THEIR SAY
    THEIR WORDS HAVE BEEN BLOWN AWAY

    ALL THEY DO IS TRY TO DIMINISH
    BUT SHE STANDS TALL WHEN THEY ARE FINISHED

    MAYBE THEY SHOULD GIVE PLUMBING A WHIRL
    BECAUSE NO ONES GONNA EVER STOP OUR GIRL

    SO CARRIEFANS RAISE UP YOUR GLASS
    OUR GIRL JUST KNOCKED NASHVILLE ON ITS ASS

    NOW HDD MAKES OK PREDICTIONS AT TIMES
    BUT IM RUSSERDAMUS AND I MAKE THE RYHMES

    SO AS THERE GURUS PUFF ON THEIR GONG
    REMEMBER CARRIEFANS IM NEVER WRONG

    SO WHEN I GIVE BLOWN AWAY IT'S RANK
    THAT'S RIGHT YOU CAN TAKE IT TO THE BANK

    SORRY HDD YOUR PREDICTION IS LOW
    BA WILL SELL 377,777 AND CARRIEFANS WILL GLOW

    ******THE END******
