Nashville, TN -- If it hadn't been for Adele, Taylor Swift would have the top album from last year. Her project "Red" finished second on the list of top-sellers put out by Nielsen SoundScan.

Swift moved 3.1 million copies of her album in 2012 -- a solid total, but still more than a million copies behind Adele's "21," which was the top album in the nation for a second straight year. On the other hand, there were five country artists in the top 10 in album sales last year. Nielsen SoundScan says that's a record for the genre.
