For the first time ever, Guaraldi's soundtrack album for A Charlie Brown Christmas has hit the Top 10 of Billboard's "Hot 200" album chart. This reflects sales and streaming data compiled for the week that concluded on Christmas Eve, December 24.
Granted, it's perched in the No. 10 spot ... but that's still Top 10!
And, mind you, this isn't merely the Top Holiday Albums chart, where it has tracked regularly since 1987. No, we're talking about the overall album chart, where the top spots currently belong to (respectively), Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney and Eminem.
This is huge.
What a lovely, lovely way to conclude the year!
