Strong sales continue for Swift

Friday, November 5, 2010 – The booming sales of Taylor Swift's latest, "Speak Now," are likely to continue for another week, according to Billboard. The music web site said "Speak Now was "easily holding for a second week atop the list, with perhaps 350,000 sold by week's end on Nov. 7." The web site quoted unnamed industry sources.

Jason Aldean looks to have a strong opening week as well, according to Billboard. His fourth studio disc, "My Kinda Party," could reach 200,000 in sales, which would be his best sales week ever. Aldean's 2009 disc, "Wide Open," started with 109,000 units sold.

Brad Paisley's "Hits Alive" also will chart, but apparently is not doing the numbers of Aldean or Swift.

Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
