These are the top selling country albums & digital songs of 2014 so far, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The mid-year sales stats give Luke Bryan plenty of reason to flash his trademark ivory smile once more -- he's featured on the two most-downloaded country songs thus far in 2014, and he lands at No. 2 among country albums year-to-date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Bryan is a guest on country's best-selling digital song during the last six months -- Florida Georgia Line's "This Is How We Roll," which sold 1.5 million during the period. Bryan's "Play It Again" follows at No. 2 on the Country Digital Songs list after moving 1.3 million units. Additionally, his ballad "Drink A Beer" amassed 738,000 downloads, docking at No. 7.

Bryan's "Crash My Party" package meanwhile logged 455,000 sales to land at No. 2 on the country albums best-sellers list. Eric Church's "The Outsiders," released Feb. 11, accrued 642,000 sales to outpace the rest of the field.

They remain bright spots in sales lists severely affected by consumers' shift in consumption habits from purchases to streaming. Brantley Gilbert's "Bottoms Up," downloaded 1.2 million times from Dec. 30, 2013, through June 29, joins "How We Roll" and "Play It Again" as the only country songs that sold more than a million during the period. By contrast, seven country songs topped the million mark during the first half of 2013.

Similarly, Church's "The Outsiders" is the lone half-million wolf among country albums during the six-month window. Three titles topped 500,000 units in the first half of 2013: Blake Shelton's "Based on a True Story‚" Taylor Swift's "Red" and Florida Georgia Line's "Here's to the Good Times."

More on Luke Bryan:

Women's much-publicized doldrums in the format were evident among song downloads. No female voices were present among country's top 10 digital songs. (To find the highest-ranked song with a female voice, you have to dip down to the No. 19 biggest-seller of 2014: Miranda Lambert's "Automatic," with 487,000 sold.)

Two women, however, made the list of the top 10 selling country albums. Miranda Lambert's "Platinum," released June 3, raced to No. 5 with 305,000 sales during the last four weeks of the period. And Jennifer Nettles' "That Girl" managed 165,000 sales to finish No. 9 -- that's a particularly good showing in a hit-driven genre for an album whose lead single, the title song, stalled at No. 37 on the Country Airplay chart.

Nettles' project was not alone among best-selling albums lacking a radio-driven hit. The late Johnny Cash squeaked onto the chart at No. 10 for 149,000 sales of "Out Among the Stars," a collection of previously unreleased recordings from the early 1980s.

Overall country sales dropped by double-digit margins in both configuration formats. Consumers purchased 15.3 million country albums during the first half of 2014, a drop of 22% from the 19.5 million sold during that six-month period in 2013. Country digital song downloads totaled 73.3 million through June 29, a 21% decline from the 92.5 million tallied in 2013.
