Carrie Underwood with New Single
Perhaps one of the most well-known country singers of our generation today is Carrie Underwood. And as we all know, she is a product of the reality show “American Idol”. Underwood has won many awards now since her victory on the fourth season of American Idol including several Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards and American Music Awards, a Golden Globe Award nominee, a three-time Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Female Vocalist winner, and a two-time ACM Entertainer of the Year.
Carrie Underwood recently released her latest digital single, "Good Girl." According to Nielsen Soundscan, the said single debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard’s Digital Country Songs chart this week. The said song will be Carrie’s carrier single of her upcoming new album that is set for release on May 1st.
The official music video for "Good Girl," featuring Carrie Underwood who appears on the video wearing one costume change to another, made its debut Monday night on Entertainment Tonight. The video was broadcasted exclusively and had an online world premiere. The music video is now ready for purchase on iTunes as it was made available last March 13. On March 14, the video was released to all its digital and broadcast partners as well.
In just the first two weeks of its release, the lead single "Good Girl" has doubled its sales reaching 227,000 units and has remained number one on the digital charts for two consecutive weeks now. Carrie Underwood’s most anticipated fourth album, entitled “Blown Away”, has left her fans waiting excitedly. Underwood has hinted that her songs from her upcoming fourth album will feature songs with a “darker storyline”. It was obvious on her single; "Good Girl" shows Carrie rocking an up tempo vocal in it.
Since her win back in 2005 on American Idol, Underwood has truly gone a long way by winning awards and selling albums. About 14 million copies of her debut album, Some Hearts, in 2005 were sold worldwide. She now has 14 No. 1 songs under her name, six of which she was a co-writer. She was hailed as the first ever country artist in the history of music to achieve 10 No. 1 singles from their first two albums. She is dubbed as the most successful American idol winner to date taking into consideration the accolades and awards she have received.
"Good Girl" is now available at all digital retailers.
