Her Blown Away album made history this spring by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart making Carrie only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. Blown Away also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Carrie only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. The first two singles from Blown Away, "Good Girl" and "Blown Away," both reached the #1 spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase country aircheck charts, and each has been certified platinum for over 1 million downloads sold.
