It's rare when an artist tops The Beatles, but Eminem has done just that. Eminem has 2 cd's in the top 10 of that list.  The Beatles had the best selling CD of the Decade however.

Here is the top 10 list of artists and sales:

1. Eminem 32.2
2. The Beatles 30
3. Tim McGraw 24.6
4. Toby Keith 24.4
5. Britney Spears 22.9
6. Kenny Chesney 22
7. Linkin Park 21.4
8. Nelly 21.2
9. Creed 20.5
10. Jay-Z 20.3

Linken Park and Creed?  Seriously?  Hope none of you are NOT surprised by the amount of country artists who made the list as a majority of their fans buy the CD's instead of downloading the music for free.

So how many people will admit to buying Creed CD's?  Where you at?-Dr.FB

Taylor Swift kicked off the Country Music Awards with a rocking performance and by the end of the night, she had 4 awards leaving with her.

Taylor won the biggest award of the night, Entertainer of the Year.  Tim McGraw didn't jump on stage and say that Faith Hill had one of the best years of all time. It went on without a hitch and she seemed happy and surprised by receiving the award.

Congrats Taylor on your big night and big award win.-Dr.FB
