We'll all celebrate Thanksgiving this week, but some artists have reasons to be especially thankful this year. Here's a round-up of artists (and others) who have much for which to give thanks.

Taylor Swift—In October, Swift posted the biggest one-week sales tally (1,208,000) in more than 10 years. She's only the fourth artist (and the first woman) to top the 1 million mark in weekly sales more than once. As a little bonus, she landed her first #1 single on the Hot 100.
