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

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…

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
