American Idol Season 5: Encores CD
entered the Billboard 200 Album chart at #3 this week. Taylor Hicks's "Do You Make Me proud" goes on sale next week. That will probably reach number 1. But one of his fello finalists is on the Billboard charts. That would be Chris Daughtry whose cover of Bon Jovi's "Wanter Dead or Alive" hit the chart at number 43. And Hicks version of "Taking to the Streets" by the Doobie Brothers came in at #69.
Now both of these songs are on the forthcoming CD. The CD so far has sold about 154,000 copies. Which is a record for first sales of any Idol CD compilation. The source for this post comes from the The Charlotte Observer.
