'Duck Dynasty' outselling Britney Spears with Christmas album

'Duck Dynasty' outselling Britney Spears with Christmas album




It seems like just about everything the Robertson family of West Monroe touches these days turns to gold. The family's latest venture, an album of Christmas music entitled Duck the Halls, is currently in the No. 2 spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, down from the No. 1 position last week. The album is receiving favorable reviews, and artists of the caliber of Luke Bryan, Josh Turner, George Strait and Alison Krauss lend their talents to the mix. With the popularity of the Duck Dynasty TV series and the rollout of every imaginable piece of Dynasty-related merchandise, success may have been assured. The same could not be said of another Louisiana icon, Britney Spears, whose latest effort, Britney Jean, sold an estimated 115,000 units in its first week—impressive but still less than Duck the Halls and the superstar's worst first week ever, according to Idolator, an arts and entertainment website. —Staff report
