Both Chris Daughtry and Carrie Underwood took home 3 awards each at last nights American Music Awards.

This shows you don’t have to win American Idol to sell albums and win awards. Daughtry won for best “breakthrough” artist. These two have been able to sell a a ton of CD’s in a declining CD market. Say what you want about Idol it’s a very powerful brand.

The American Music Awards honor pop-rock, country, soul-rhythm & blues, rap-hip hop, Latin, alternative, soundtracks, adult contemporary and contemporary inspirational music. Nominees were selected based on national sales and radio play.
