RIAA - Top Selling Acts In US History - October 28, 2010, 12:02 PM

Just an offshoot that came to mind from the Jamiroquai thread.
I knew Garth Brooks was big - but not this BIG! Jezus! I'm also shocked at Kenny G and Stevie Wonder's respective position. I swear they would have been the inverse.

Let it go. This post has nothing to do with other.

Not to mention, I've already stated several times they sell double wood over here.

This is just a list I came across when I was trying to see what there actual numbers were. (BTW <3 million)

No worries.

The RIAA doesn't add you to the Top-Seller list until you hit the Diamond Level (10MM) - that's why it ended there.

It really surprised me the position of some artists.
