FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 11, 2007
Nashville, TN – Double-GRAMMY winner and reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Carrie Underwood is atop the country airplay charts once again this week as her fourth single, “Wasted,” follows the #1 success of “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Don’t Forget to Remember Me,” and “Before He Cheats.” With “Wasted,” Carrie becomes the first female country artist in the monitored era to achieve four #1 singles from her debut album. She joins her Arista Nashville labelmates Alan Jackson and Brooks & Dunn as the three most recent artists in country music to enjoy this remarkable feat on their first album.
The singles are all from Underwood’s unstoppable 19 Recordings/Arista Nashville debut disc, Some Hearts, now certified 5-times Platinum.
