    Carrie Underwood's 'Blown Away' is the best-selling Country album of 2012

    Since Billboard and every other Country publication like to play spin doctors with Taylor Swift being Country, I did a little spinning of my own:


    Carrie Underwood's fourth studio album, Blown Away, continues to dominate Country music. Billboard, one of the world's leading music publications, revealed the year end tally for best-selling albums of 2012, as documented by Nielsen SoundScan. Underwood's platinum-selling disc came in at No. 7 in overall album sales, after shifting an impressive 1.20 million units. The award-winning album bests out fierce competitors Luke Bryan (Tailgates and Tanlines, 1.10 million), Lionel Richie (Tuskegee, 1.07 million) and Jason Aldean (Night Train, 1.02 million).


    Also making the movers list is Taylor Swift's pop album Red, which sits comfortably at No. 2 with 3.11 million copies sold in the 2012 calendar year, behind only Adele's now diamond-selling 21 record. This follows on the heels of previous Country achievements with Speak Now (No. 3 with 2.99 million in 2010) and Fearless (No. 1 with 3.22 million in 2009; No. 3 with 2.11 million in 2008).


    In the past 12 months, a whopping 315.96 million records have been sold (across all genres), down only 4% from 2011's 330.57 million. The tracking year began on Jan. 2, 2012 and ended on Dec. 30.
