According to the Palm Beach Post about 100 new holiday albums are released each year. In recent years such albums have enriched the music industry by nearly $150-million a year, more than one percent of overall annual record sales of between $12- to 14-billion. While it used to be believed that only artists who were "washed up" crooners made holiday albums, it soon became apparent to industry analysts that holiday music does well both in good economic times and bad. Here are the holiday CDs that have been the highest selling of all time. 8 Million-Plus Kenny G: Miracles: The Holiday Album 7 Million-Plus Elvis Presley: Elvis' Christmas Album 5 Million-Plus Barbra Steisand: A Christmas Album; Mannheim Steamroller: A Fresh Aire Christmas and Mannheim Steamroller Christams; Johnny Mathis: Merry Christmas 4 Million-Plus Various Artists: A Very Special Christmas; Mannheim Steamroller: Christmas in the Aire; Various Artists: Christmas Through the Years; Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas; Various Artists: Now That's What I Call Christmas; Celine Dion:These Are Special Times 3 Million-Plus Garth Brooks; Beyond the Season; Kenny G: Faith: A Holiday Album; Amy Grant: Home for Christmas; Elvis Presley: The Wonderful World of Christmas I was really surprised that Kenny G has the number one best selling holiday album of all time. But it should be noted that while G has the single best selling holiday album, Chip Davis is the biggest selling artist because his series of holiday albums under the name Mannheim Steamroller has sold twenty million albums. That does not include sales of his newest album released this year "Christmas Extraordinaire." Another interesting fact is that two of the best selling holiday artists, Streisand and G, are both Jewish. Also one of the best known Christmas songs of all times was written by a Jewsih composer, Irving Berlin. That song would be "White Christmas." I'm a big holiday music addict. Just thought if any of you share my enthusiasm you'd find this list interesting.
