The King of Rock and Roll still holds the title of best-selling Christmas album of all time with over 10 million copies sold. In 2012, the RIAA awarded its Diamond award to the Elvis Presley Estate for “Elvis’ Christmas Album,” which has sold the most copies of any Christmas album in the United States. Second to Presley is Kenny G’s Miracles: The Holiday Album which has sold 7.37 million copies.
The two biggest artists of the 20th century are still making their mark well into the 21st century. Elvis Presley and The Beatles both made Nielsen Music’s list of the Top 10 artists of the past decade (2010-2019) for U.S. album sales. They were the only non-contemporary artists who made the Top 10.
