Daughtry debuted at No. 1 on the album charts, selling 269,000 copies. That’s pretty good nowadays, down a bit from his first album debut of 304,000 in 2006 but not by much.
He ended the three-week run by Michael Jackson.
His single “No Surprise” is on the verge of hitting the CHR top 20 but is no “It’s Not Over” or “Home” in terms of chart impact.
Brooke White’s album debuted on digital only last week and sold almost 10,000 copies, twice as many as Michael Johns.
Ryan Seacrest will be back in his hometown briefly in October for a charity event, the Hearts and Hands Gala, benefiting Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities. It’s set for Oct. 24 at the World of Coca-Cola. Jennifer Brett, our “social butterfly,” reported this a few days back and I only now remembered to report it. I can’t ascertain the cost of buying individual tickets though sponsorships start at $2,500.
