Look for Carrie on the Covers of the New Issues of Cosmopolitan and Country Weekly, Both on Sale Now!
Nashville, TN – Three-time GRAMMY winner and two-time, reigning ACM and CMA Female Vocalist winner Carrie Underwood continues to define her place in music history as her newest hit, “Last Name,” this week becomes her seventh consecutive #1 single to top the BDS or Mediabase country airplay charts.
With the unprecedented success of “Last Name,” Underwood becomes the only artist in country chart history to have their first seven singles all reach #1. No country artist in the current era of BDS or Mediabase airplay monitoring has matched this accomplishment, nor has any country artist in recorded chart history debuted at #1 and extended that run across seven hits in a row.
From her Double-Platinum current release, Carnival Ride, “Last Name” is the album’s third #1 single – including “So Small” and “All-American Girl” – all of which were co-written by Carrie. Underwood’s first album, the 7x-Platinum juggernaut, Some Hearts, launched four country chart-toppers beginning with the first single serviced to country radio, the GRAMMY-winning “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” and continuing with “Don’t Forget to Remember Me,” GRAMMY winner “Before He Cheats,” and “Wasted.”
Fans can be watching for Carrie this Saturday, June 14, as she performs on GAC’s Opry Live (8 PM ET), in a re-airing of last week’s special, followed by an encore broadcast of the half-hour profile, Road to the Opry: Carrie Underwood. She’s also featured on the covers of the July issue of Cosmopolitan and the June 16 issue of Country Weekly, both on sale now.
Underwood continues her headlining “Carnival Ride Tour” through the end of the year, with upcoming performances this week in Reading, PA; Huntington, WV; and Greenville, SC.
