Carrie’s “Cowboy Casanova” Digital Single Explodes with First-Week Sales of More than 110,000!
Carrie has the nation’s #1 country digital single as “Cowboy Casanova” explodes with massive first-week sales of 110,236 copies. With the achievement, Carrie remains the only solo country artist this year to debut a digital single above the 100,000 mark – a feat she’s accomplished not once, but twice in 2009, having also hit the six digits with her recording of this season’s American Idol farewell theme, “Home Sweet Home.”
The red-hot first single from Carrie’s November 3 album release, Play On, “Cowboy Casanova” makes its video debut this weekend as part of CMT’s multi-artist Big New Music Weekend. Watch for Carrie as the premieres take over CMT’s music video program blocks, the first airing from 6-11 AM ET on October 2. You can also look for the video beginning Friday on CMT.com, as well as the continuous-video CMT Pure, also starting Friday at 6 AM ET.
In addition to this week’s sales achievement with “Cowboy Casanova,” the sizzling track is also the fastest climbing country airplay single of Carrie’s career and the fastest rising hit of the year, currently #11 at country radio.
