Congrats to Keith Harkin and Paul Byrom

Keith Harkin has a tour coming up after the Celtic Thunder Australian tour, so he's dealing with slightly different challenges this year, but he too has reason to celebrate this week. Keith's solo album is not just topping the world music chart on amazon, but is the top rated pop album on amazon now. I have no idea whether this means he's rolling in money now or just barely paying off all his debts from making his album- certainly he'll also have expenses on tour that his revenues from album sales and touring will have to offset, so he may not be coasting just yet. But, for this weekend Keith's hanging out at the top, in ratings if not in sales, and hopefully he'll stay there a long while. And, while the staggered release date that launched his album may have drained some of its sales momentum, there's still ample time to get Keith Harkin's self-titled debut album to the number one spot on amazon and elsewhere for pop or for music sales in general.
