Carrie Underwood goes double platinum
Thursday, December 13, 2007
– Carrie Underwood went double platinum with her second release, "Carnival Ride." That signifies sales of 2 million units.
Sales of the disc, which came out in October, were helped by the number one single "So Small," her fifth consecutive number one single.
Carrie Underwood will be the first female artist in Billboard history to earn back-to-back honors for Top Country Album. Only one other artist - Charlie Rich, in 1973-74.
Based on cumulative SoundScan sales now in excess of 6.1 million copies, "Some Heart"s this year became the best-selling female country debut in history. No album - in any genre - to release since "Some Heart's (on Nov. 15, 2005) has surpassed the disc's sales to date.
Underwood soon will release a new single, "All-American Girl," along with performing live in New York City's Times Square on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2008 on ABC.
