Tribute to Carrie Underwood

Underwood won three Grammy Awards for the album, including Best New Artist
Her second album, Carnival Ride, had one of the biggest-ever opening weeks by a female artist and earned Underwood two Grammy Awards. Underwood’s fourth album, Blown Away, earned her a Grammy Award and was that year’s second best-selling release by a female artist. Her fifth album, Storyteller, made her the only country artist to have all first five studio albums reach either numbers one or two on the Billboard 200.
