Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television, film, and as a New York Times bestselling author and successful entrepreneur. She has sold more than 66 million records worldwide, recorded 28 #1 singles (14 of which she co-wrote), and has seven albums that are certified Platinum or Multi-Platinum by the RIAA, all while continuing to sell out arena tours across North America and the UK.
She recently added two new career milestones with the RIAA’s 9x Platinum certification of her 2005 debut album, Some Hearts, and the 7x Platinum certification of her global smash hit single from that album, “Before He Cheats.” In just over 15 years, she has already skyrocketed to the top of Gold and Platinum history with over 72 million total RIAA certifications, continuing her reign as the number one certified Country female artist in music history for digital singles.
In September 2020, Carrie released her first-ever Christmas album, My Gift, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country, Christian and Holiday charts in its first week. Additionally, HBO Max streamed “My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood,”an exclusive, musical holiday special, with Carrie performing songs from My Gift with a full orchestra and choir. My Gift (Special Edition) debuted #1 on the Billboard Top Holiday Albums Chart in September 2021, featuring three additional tracks. To date, there have been over 400 million global streams for My Gift and My Gift (Special Edition) combined.
Carrie released her ninth album, the GRAMMY® winning My Savior, in March 2021, featuring the beloved gospel hymns she grew up singing in church. My Savior debuted #1 on the Billboard Country Chart, making it her ninth consecutive release to do so, extending her record as the only artist to accomplish that feat with all nine of her album releases from the beginning of her career. The album was brought to life with “My Savior: Live From The Ryman,” a virtual live concert performance from the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, which streamed live globally on Facebook on Easter Sunday, raising over $112,000 for Save the Children. “My Savior: LIVE From The Ryman,” is currently available on DVD. She starred as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s Emmy®-winning blockbuster, The Sound of Music Live!, hosted the CMA Awards for 12 consecutive years, and has performed the show open for primetime television’s #1 program, NBC’s Sunday Night Football, since 2013. Underwood has won over 100 major awards including 8 GRAMMY® Awards, 16 ACM Awards including three for Entertainer of the Year (the first female in history to win twice and, as of 2020, the only female ever to win three times), 25 CMT Music Awards where she continues to hold the record for the most award wins ever for the show, 7 CMA Awards, and 17 American Music Awards with her 7th win for Favorite Female Artist – Country and 6th win for Favorite Country Album for Cry Pretty, breaking the AMA record for Most Wins in the Favorite Country Album Category.
