The Top Selling Christmas Albums of All Time
By Keith Caulfield, L.A. | December 24, 2013

Albums from Elvis, Kenny G and more rank high on the list.

Elvis Presley's "Elvis' Christmas Album" reigns as the biggest-selling Christmas album of all time in the United States.

The set, first released in 1957, has been certified as having sold 10 million copies according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Billboard has compiled a list of the top 10 selling Christmas albums, using both RIAA certification information and actual point-of-sale data from Nielsen SoundScan. For albums released before SoundScan started in 1991, we used their RIAA certification to determine sales.

Following Presley is Kenny G's "Miracles: The Holiday Album" with 7.3 million sold according to SoundScan. The jazz saxophonist's album, which was released in 1994, spent three non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Kenny G followed up the success of "Miracles" with five more Christmas releases, including "Faith: A Holiday Album" (released in 1999; 2.8 million) and "Wishes" (2002; 739,000).

Three albums are tied with 6 million in sales each, according to the RIAA: Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song" and Mannheim Steamroller's "Christmas" and "A Fresh Aire Christmas."

Cole's "The Christmas Song" album -- with its famed title track (known to many as "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire") -- was originally released in 1960 as "The Magic of Christmas." It was reissued in 1963 under the new title, and included his 1961 recording of "The Christmas Song."

Mannheim's simply titled "Christmas" album was released in 1984, while its "A Fresh Aire Christmas" bowed in 1988. The instrumental group has been wildly successful with its various Christmas albums, having earned six No. 1s on Billboard's Holiday Albums chart through the years.

Josh Groban's recent smash album "Noel" is next up on the list, with 5.7 million sold, according to SoundScan. The album was released in October of 2007 and quickly became that year's biggest selling album, with 3.7 million sold in 2007. It overtook the soundtrack to "High School Musical 2" to become that year's top seller. ("HSM2" had been the best selling album of 2007 until the week ending Dec. 16, when "Noel" jumped ahead of it. "HSM2" finished 2007 with 3 million.)

"Noel" spent five weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and at the time, that was the most weeks at No. 1 for any Christmas album. Its feat was since tied by Michael Buble's 2011 album, "Christmas." (The album with the second-most weeks at No. 1 is Presley's "Elvis' Christmas Album.")

A gaggle of pop divas are next in line on the all-time list: Mariah Carey's "Merry Christmas" (5.3 million, according to SoundScan), Celine Dion's "These Are Special Times" (5.2 million, per SoundScan) and Barbra Streisand's "A Christmas Album" (5 million, according to the RIAA).

Carey and Dion's albums were released in 1994 and 1998, respectively. Carey's title carries the inescapable new holiday classic "All I Want For Christmas Is You," which has sold more downloads than any other holiday song ever (2.6 million).

As for Streisand, her collection was first issued in 1967. It's likely that it has sold more than 5 million since its last certification in 1999, though a more exact figure is difficult to determine.

Rounding out the list of the all-time top 10 best selling Christmas album is Johnny Mathis' "Merry Christmas," with 5 million sold, according to the RIAA. Released in 1958, the album peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

11/1 Billboard charts:

Charts: 'Frozen' + Christmas + Idina Menzel = Holiday Hit?
By Keith Caulfield | October 24, 2014

Thanks to the Tony Award-winning actor-singer's 'Frozen' fame, her new 'Holiday Wishes' could become the year's biggest Christmas release.

Will the voice of Frozen's Elsa ­singing Christmas tunes be music to the ears of ­consumers? That's the hope with Idina Menzel's new Holiday Wishes album, which debuts at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 with 20,000 copies sold in the week ending Oct. 19, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Though Menzel is a Tony-winning actress and singer, she's arguably best-known for Frozen. The runaway hit film has earned $401 million at the U.S. and Canadian box office, according to Box Office Mojo. It was the third-highest-grossing movie released in America in 2013, and earned two Academy Awards: best animated feature film and best original song (for the hit single "Let It Go," sung by Menzel in the movie).

And don't forget the Frozen soundtrack, featuring Menzel's recordings. It's the biggest album of the year so far, with 3.2 million sold in 2014 (of its 3.5 million total). So, it makes sense that the breakout star from the wintry musical film would make her own holiday album.

The real question now is, can Holiday Wishes turn into as big of a smash as Frozen? Well-received Christmas albums can bring in big returns, after all. For example, take Josh Groban's Noel and Michael Buble's Christmas, two of the biggest ­holiday sets in recent memory: The former finished 2007 as the year's best seller (3.7 million of its 5.7 million total), while Buble's was the second-­biggest of 2011 (2.5 million of its 3.4 million total). For good measure, Buble duets with Menzel on Holiday Wishes, and Menzel, Groban and Buble all share the same label, Warner Bros. Records.

Industry sources say Menzel's album has a great shot at becoming 2014's biggest holiday release, though forecasting its year-end total is a crapshoot. (Guesses range anywhere from 250,000 to 650,000 units.) But anything can happen: Who would have predicted that the Robertson family (of Duck Dynasty fame) would tally the biggest holiday album of 2013 with Duck the Halls? It sold 809,000 copies, more than the runner-up, Kelly Clarkson's Wrapped in Red, which tallied 763,000.

Various Artists, Ellen's The Only Holiday Album You'll Ever Need - Volume 1 - No. 70 – The humorously-titled set (should we expect volume two next year?) follows the talk show host's Ellen's I'm Gonna Make You Dance Jams (No. 38, 2013). On the Holiday Albums chart, the new effort debuts at No. 6.

Various Artists, Christmas With Nashville - No. 105 – ABC TV's Nashville continues to churn out albums, as this new Christmas title starts with 4,000 sold. In less than two years, eight Nashville-generated albums have reached various Billboard lists.

Celine Dion, These Are Special Times - No. 128 – The sturdy-selling album – the fourth-biggest-selling holiday set since Nielsen SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991 – jumps back onto the tally. It has sold 5.32 million to date.

Johnny Mathis, Gold: A 50th Anniversary Christmas Celebration - No. 192 – Mathis, long a favorite with Christmas music fans, returns to the chart with this holiday collection. 10.5 percent of the 200-position chart consists of Christmas titles, and the number will only grow larger as we jingle all the way to Dec. 25. Christmas album sales were up 32.5 percent for the week.
