Carrie Underwood has been nothing but sensational since entering the music world. She has sold over 64 million records, and all eight of her albums have gotten into the top five of the Billboard Hot 200 chart. Additionally, four of those albums have gotten to the number one spot on the chart. Those albums are “Carnival Ride,” “Play On,” “Blown Away,” and “Cry Pretty.”

She has had amazing success with her albums, and her songs have obviously done well too. She has had forty songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Fifteen of those songs have held the top spot at some point.

After a brief hiatus from winning awards, she was right back at it. In 2012, Carrie Underwood won Best Country Solo Performance for “Blown Away.” Finally, in 2014, she received the award for Best Country Solo Performance for her song, “Something in the Water.”
