Nothing new on the charts last week, although Switchfoot and Skillet made it back into the Billboard 200. We look forward to seeing David Crowder Band’s last album on the next chart.

(For whatever reason, Soundscan includes sales from Christian outlets in their weekly totals that determine the Billboard 200 chart positions, but they don’t include them in their reported totals. So I just add up all the weekly totals and compare them to the reported totals to see how many sales are missing from Christian outlets.)
I don’t have the whole sales history for Skillet’s Awake, and their real total is probably easily over 700,000 if not 750,000. Casting Crowns’s latest is well over 300,000 in real sales, and Chris Tomlin’s compilation album should cross the 100,000 mark next week.
