Garth Brooks Tops Elvis For Best-Selling Artist

Posted By on Wed, Nov 7, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Your friends at the Recording Industry Association of America have announced that country star Garth Brooks passed late local man and King of Rock-and-Roll Elvis Presley as the highest selling solo artist ever.

The RIAA, beloved in digital file-sharing circles, reports that Brooks has sold 123 million units to Presley's 118.5.

If nothing else, this renders the notion of Brooks having friends in low places less plausible.

However, an unofficial survey of superstar impersonators, er, tribute artists, shows that the number imitating Brooks is nowhere close to the number paying tribute to the King.
