    'American Idol' on the Charts: Kelly, Carrie, Daughtry Among Top Artists of All Time

    Chart fans the world over know the name Joel Whitburn. The resident of Menomonee Falls, Wisc. started publishing books that track the Billboard charts some 43 years ago and any chart fanatic worth his or her salt has a library of Whitburn books, including the brand-new 14th edition of Top Pop Singles, which distils stats from the Billboard pop singles chart into an easy-to-look-up format.

    At the back of Top Pop Singles, Whitburn compiles a list of the top 500 artists of all time, updating it with each new edition. The just-released 2013 volume lists three American Idol alums among the top 500, each one improving upon their ranking in the previous edition.

    ...

    Also rising on the top 500 is Carrie Underwood, who was No. 205 last time. Now she ranks No. 150, right below an also-rising Lady Gaga (No. 149) and above Eric Clapton (No. 151), Genesis (No. 152) and LL Cool J (No. 153).

    Nice! I wonder what factors they look at though as Carrie should be ahead if kelly- unless they count pop airplay more heavily. Country charts don't get as much AIs etc.

    Also- kelly has a 4 year jump on carrie so that is 4 years of chart success before carrie even won Idol.

    Actually I thought this was a list of pop artists on the pop charts. And Carrie's ranking on such a chart is quite an achievement. We all know she's number 1 on the country charts. And yes Kelly and others have a head start so I don't know the methodology used here.

    To me, Carrie is still the # 1 Idol. Carrie earns about $ 31 million in 2013.
