Bowersox CD a hit in local storesWritten by Kristen Criswell | | firstname.lastname@example.org
While national numbers for Crystal Bowersox’s debut CD have yet to be released, locally the singer’s sales have been going well with “Farmer’s Daughter” selling out at locations around town.
“This is Culture Clash’s biggest album we’ve ever had,” said Pat O’Connor, owner of Culture Clash Records. “This is this album’s sales are the biggest I’ve seen since ‘Physical Graffiti’ by Led Zeppelin.”
O’Connor said he ordered roughly 300 albums, thinking it would last him through the holidays, but sold out early in the day. The store hopes to have some in stock again by Friday.
RamaLama Records owner Rob Kimple said sales went better than he anticipated, with only one left in the store.
Additionally, Best Buy locations on Monroe Street and in Spring Meadows, both sold out of the CD. Some other area retailer locations like Target and Meijer were also out of the CD last night.
The album is ranked No. 8 on Amazon’s top selling music list and ranked No. 5 on iTunes.
