[photogallerylink id=59519 align=right] My Kinda Party by [lastfm link_type=""]Jason Aldean[/lastfm].  Well it’s the top selling country album for the first six months of this year according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan, which is a company that tracks music sales.  So far, since it first went on sale in November of last year, the album has sold over 763,000 copies.

[lastfm link_type=""]Adele[/lastfm]‘s 21 heads the list of top-selling albums. [lastfm link_type=""]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]‘s Born This Way and [lastfm link_type=""]Mumford and Sons[/lastfm] Sigh No More landed at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.  My Kinda Party was at No. 4 on the tally of top-selling albums.  So how does this increase in music sales bode for the music industry? I’m glad you asked.  A report from Nielsen projects some cause for optimism. This is the first time since 2004 that sales have shown an increase.   Total album sales are up 1 percent as compared to the first six months of 2010.
