Carrie Underwood to Release New Album October 23!

New Collection Follows the Six-Million-Selling Blockbuster Success of Her ACM-Winning Album of the Year, Some Hearts

July 16, 2007

Nashville, TN – One of this year’s most anticipated albums is set for release October 23, as two-time GRAMMY winner and reigning CMA and ACM Female Vocalist Carrie Underwood delivers her new 19 Recordings/Arista Records/Arista Nashville collection – the follow-up to her multi-award-winning juggernaut debut, Some Hearts.

The massive, cross-format success of Some Hearts scored at country and pop radio with four #1 country airplay singles and Top 10 success at Hot AC and Mainstream Top 40, while the album soared to six-times Platinum certification, becoming one of only two country debuts in history ever to reach that milestone.

Produced by Mark Bright, who helmed seven tracks on Some Hearts, the to-be-titled new disc is currently being completed, but will include additional songwriting from Carrie, who co-penned the album track, “I Ain’t in Checotah Anymore,” on Some Hearts.

Released November 15, 2005, Carrie’s Some Hearts has been #1 for a remarkable 27 of its 86 chart weeks – holding the #1 slot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart across multiple weeks in 2005, 2006, and 2007. With SoundScan sales of nearly 1,095,000 copies this year alone, Some Hearts is – 20 months after its release – the best-selling country album of 2007.
