Carrie Underwood Achieves What No Other Country Music Artist Has Ever Done

Carrie Underwood followed her heart when it came to making her album, My Savior — she drew inspiration from music that she grew up with and that touched her a deep and spiritual way.

Fans have responded to Carrie’s passion project in a big way — by making My Savior the number-1 album on both the Country and Christian album charts this week.

By hitting number-1 on the country album chart, Carrie Underwood is the first artist in country music history to have 9 consecutive albums debut in the top spot since the start of their career.

Talking about the songs on My Savior, Carrie says, “These particular songs for My Savior, you know, I grew up singing these in church and my church that we go to right now they play a lot of very contemporary Christian songs, praise and worship songs, and it’s great. But every once in a while, they’ll kind of throw in like a chorus or something of some hymn that I grew up with and there’s an immediate sense of home when I hear that. And that’s kind of where I was at when we were recording this. It should be like a warm hug, and I feel like there’s so many people that are like me that kind of long for that. You think back to that sense of home and your church that you grew up in with the pews. I mean it’s just one of those things that it just feels like home.”

This weekend Carrie appeared on CBS Sunday Morning to talk about her album, and her amazing career…

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
