    ...Taylor Swift steals the Show...



    http://lefsetz.com/wordpress/index.php/ ... -the-hall/

    Lefsetz Letter

    "...If you haven’t been to Nashville, you haven’t been to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. And you’re the worse for it...

    ...But the show was stolen by someone much younger. Someone still wet behind the ears, but wise beyond her years.

    TAYLOR SWIFT

    You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
    It’s the morning of your very first day

    Do you remember the first day of high school?

    You thought for days what you were going to wear. You walked into the building minding your cool. This counted. You had to get it right, you didn’t want to ruin your reputation. Not for the next four years.

    Taylor Swift walked on stage in a glittery silver dress and a guitar strung around her neck. The applause, the screams were DEAFENING!

    Have you ever been at a show and been completely exhilarated, knowing that you were at the exact center of the universe, ground zero of the human experience?

    That’s where we were Tuesday night, all 18,000 of us, when Taylor Swift performed.

    Not reading from a script, intelligent and schooled, Taylor started riffing. After basking in the adulation she said what she loved about country music is that everybody got to tell their story. And this was hers.

    It’s your freshman year and you’re gonna be here
    For the next four years in this town
    Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say?
    ‘You know, I haven’t seen you around before’

    Life. It’s full of hopes and dreams. And victories and losses. What gets you through is your friends and the music.

    That’s the power of music. When done right. Too often it’s done wrong.

    It’s done for corporations. For old men in suits. It’s streamlined for radio. Made inauthentic in order to sell not only itself, but associated products. To the point where when you hear something genuine, you exult EUREKA!

    I could analyze the changes, the lyrics. Deconstruct the song. But that would be missing the point. It’s the total effect. Of a gawky, geeky girl who made it through. To womanhood...

    ...I’ve seen music become about looks more than sound, I’ve seen music become a sideshow, something that makes people rich, but leaves the audience starving, turning to television and the Internet for fulfillment.

    And then I discovered Taylor Swift. Someone who knows it’s about songs, not stardom. Someone willing to keep ticket prices cheap so her young fans have a chance to see her. Someone who’s got the ethos of a star from way back when, as opposed to the sold out creeps who tramp about today.

    Music when done right is life itself.

    Listening to Taylor Swift Tuesday night, tears came streaming down my face. I couldn’t stop them. On one hand, I was embarrassed. On the other I was thrilled. Just when I’d given up, believing that everything I’d experienced previously had gone, here it was, back.

    That rush of going to the show, feeling that there was no place I’d rather be..."

    • Taylor should get a major boost this week, she was so freakin' likeable at her Oprah interview. I predict Top 5 for Fearless.

        I was down at my local Wal-Mart today - there was only two Fearless albums left out of 50 they had on the shelves last month. TS-2006 was sold out but they likely only had one on the shelves.

                          • Week Ending Oct. 18, 2009: Taylor Swift's Minor Miracle

                            Posted Wed Oct 21, 2009 11:16am PDT
                            by Paul Grein in Chart Watch

                            [img]http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/SIG=137bvabhs/**http%3A//a323.yahoofs.com/ymg/chart_watch__10/chart_watch-53615838-1256147378.jpg%3Fymz2NFCDf5NLElUY[/img]

                            http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/chart_ ... r-miracle/

                            Taylor Swift is on the brink of accomplishing something that I was starting to think we might never see again: topping the 4 million mark in sales with back-to-back studio albums. As of this week, Fearless has sold 3,998,000 copies. Her 2006 debut album, Taylor Swift, has sold 4,364,000 copies. Swift will become the first artist to land back-to-back 4 million-selling studio albums since Rascal Flatts achieved the feat with 2004's Feels Like Today (sales as of this week: 5,149,000) and 2006's Me And My Gang (4,796,000). Album sales have dropped since the mid 2000s, which makes Swift's achievement all the more impressive. She gets bonus points for "degree of difficulty."

                            Fearless rebounds from #17 to #7 on The Billboard 200 this week, boosted by the singer's Oct. 14 appearance on Oprah. The album has placed in the top 10 for 40 of its 49 weeks on the chart. This is the longest run in the top 10 since Usher's Confessions logged 41 weeks in the top 10 in 2004-2005.

                            In addition, Fearless returns to #1 on the Country Albums chart. This is its 25th week on top, which surpasses Taylor Swift, which logged 24 weeks in the top spot. When you log 24 weeks at #1 with your debut album, the odds that you'll ever approach that tally again are slim. The odds that you'll top that tally with your very next album are virtually nil.

                            The key to the success of both albums has been across-the-board radio acceptance. Fearless has produced two giant hits. "Love Story" has sold 3,977,000 downloads, more than any other country crossover hit in digital history. The current "You Belong With Me" has sold 2,167,000. Taylor Swift also spawned a pair of giant crossover hits, "Our Song" and "Teardrops On My Guitar." These four songs alone have sold 10,826,000 downloads....

                            Here's the low-down on this week's top 10 albums.

                            ...7. Taylor Swift, Fearless, 33,000. The former #1 album rebounds from #17 to #7 in its 49th week. This is its 40th week in the top 10. Three songs from the album are listed on Hot Digital Songs, topped by "You Belong With Me," which inches up from #21 to #20...."
                            Red took 5 weeks to hit 2m in US sales. Speak Now took 6. Fearless took 7. Taylor Swift took 61. 1989 hit 2m in 3 weeks...

                              YOUR WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW: WMG will have the top four albums on next week’s album chart, led by the Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack in its first full week, while Universal Republic will be celebrating the ascension of Owl City to the big leagues. Otherwise, though, there will be little cause for celebration because, outside of the Top 4, this truly is a weakened preview. So what is it about the third week in October, anyway? Last year, for the week ending Oct. 26, Lil Wayne rounded out the Top 10 with only 25.4k. Shockingly, that total isn’t the lowest to ever make it into the Top 10. Just this year, in March, both T.I. and Jamie Foxx hit #10 with totals of 23.6k and 24.2k, respectively. Now that we’ve made your day, here’s a projection of what next Tuesday’s leader board will look like:
                              Twilight Saga: New Moon (Chop Shop/Atlantic) 140-150k
                              * Tim McGraw (Curb) 105-110k
                              Michael Buble (Reprise) 80-85k
                              Jay-Z (Roc Nation/Atlantic) 40-43k
                              Miley Cyrus (Hollywood) 35-37k
                              Black Eyed Peas (Interscope) 34-36k
                              Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 30-32k
                              Owl City (Universal Republic) 26-28k
                              * Joss Stone (Virgin) 25-27k
                              Barbra Streisand (Columbia) 23-25k
                              * Denotes debut
                              You may now return to debating whether global warming exists. (10/23a)

                                      • Billboard Comprehensive Albums Chart Update - October 31, 2009

                                        And Speaking Of Christmas...: Taylor Swift's "The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection" EP returns to the Comprehensive chart this week, and is the first Christmas album to crack the Comprehensive chart in the 2009 season. In fact, October 31 is the earliest any Christmas Catalog album has managed to chart since the inception of the Comprehensive chart in 2009. Josh Groban's "Noel" did it on November 1 last year, but was on the Catalog chart for the first time the week before, October 25, 2008.

                                        That marked the first time a Christmas album was on the Catalog chart in October since 2002, when a LaserLight compilation entitled "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" was somehow #33 on October 19 (now there's some trivial trivia for you!).

                                        Taylor Swift Holiday Collection moves up to # 5 on the Billboard Holiday chart

                                          Swift tops country chart for 31st week

                                          American teenager Taylor Swift will spend her 31st week at the top of the country chart with Fearless.

                                          The late Slim Dusty is back in the top 10 after slipping to number 12 last week with Sittin' On 80: 80 Aussie Truckin' Classics.

                                          Australian country musician Adam Harvey has maintained his position at number 2 with Both Sides Now, an album of duets with artists such as Troy Cassar-Daley, Wendy Matthews, Kasey Chambers, David Campbell and Guy Sebastian.

                                          • Kenny Chesney puts the pressure on Taylor's bid for 2009 CMA Entertainer of the Year

                                            - Taylor's concert ticket sales of 750k in 2009 and another 750k in ticket pre-sales for 2010 concerts through June 2010 pale against Kenny Chesney's seven straight years of tickets sales over 1 million - Kenny is # 1 in the music industry

                                            - however, Kenny is taking next year off from the concert tour so Taylor may be the lead country artist contending for the 2010 CMA award.



                                            http://blog.gactv.com/blog/2009/10/26/k ... tour-list/

                                            Kenny Chesney Tops Tour List
                                            By Wendy Newcomer

                                            Garth Brooks and Taylor Swift are making big news by quickly selling out their upcoming tours — but Kenny Chesney’s still at the top of the list for now.

                                            USA Today reported on the strongest tours in the country and found that Kenny is No. 1 in all genres.

                                            “You know,” says Kenny of the honor, “to me, it’s about rocking the fans… and I never want to have a ticket price that keeps the people who buy my records or listen to my songs in their truck from coming out and partying with us. If I can make sure there are always seats people can afford – and even try to keep the best seats where they’re reasonable for what they are – then I feel like I can keep having the party of the summer when I go out. Again, to me, it’s about that moment and having fun with your buddies.

                                            “And when you look at some of the other names on that list, well, I’m blown away… cause those are some great shows, too! I know – I’ve been out to see a few of them when we were off, and to be in company with Elton John – who’s out with Billy Joel –, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen or my friend Dave Matthews, it makes you extra grateful that people chose to make you a part of their summer.”

                                            Billboard’s Touring Editor Ray Waddell noted that for seven straight years, Kenny’s sold above a million tickets sales. Even on his shortest tour to date and charging the lowest ticket prices of any major headliner, he was also the only act on the list to play NFL Stadiums across the nation.

                                            “I don’t think anyone sets up their concert schedule or their ticket prices thinking, ‘I’m gonna be the biggest tour on the road,” Kenny says. “But these are the moments that confirm what I already know: I have the best, wildest, most committed fans any artist could ever hope for. I like to think I live their lives with’em through my songs, and they’ve made my last 8 summers the best of a very, very good life by coming out to the shows they way they do.”

                                            Kenny won’t have a major tour next year, but you can catch the four-time and reigning Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year at isolated summer shows here and there. “It wouldn’t be summer for me without the fans,” he states. “It just wouldn’t.”

                                            You can also see him on Nov. 11 at the 43rd Annual CMA Awards, performing with buddy Dave Matthews.

                                                Hopefully HDD will report good first day sales. The fan sites said only a few stores had the new album Monday & they quickly sold out. Most stores were waiting for today to release the FP album.
