    Re: Carrie Underwood

    Carrie continues to get good press from Billboard.

    Breaking Music News - Music Business Information - Music Industry Sales

    SHE'LL TAKE THE FIFTH: In the short chart span of exactly two years and four months on Hot Country Songs, Carrie Underwood has amassed five top 10 hits. The fifth one breaks into the top 10 this week, as "So Small" (Arista) advances 11-10.

    "So Small" is Underwood's eighth chart entry, but only five of those have been actively promoted to country radio by her label. These are her five top 10 hits:

    "Jesus, Take the Wheel," No. 1 (2006)
    "Don't Forget to Remember Me," No. 2 (2006)
    "Before He Cheats," No. 1 (2006)
    "Wasted," No. 1 (2007)
    "So Small," No. 10 (2007)

    Carrie's other three chart entries are:

    "Bless the Broken Road," No. 50 (2005) [with Rascal Flatts]
    "Inside Your Heaven," No. 52 (2005)
    "I'll Stand by You," No. 41 (2007)

    Re: Carrie Underwood

    Carrie is already getting some great reviews from he contribution to the Christmas album that is due on the stands this morning.

    Carrie Underwood: Do You Hear What I Hear || Straight Talking Country Music reviews

    Carrie Underwood's voice is one of Country music's greatest assets and her contribution to a new Christmas compilation could well see it make a big show in the charts.

    "Hear Something Country" has six "new" songs and Underwood's contribution - the classic "Do You Hear What I Hear" is among them.

    She may be a relative newcomer, but Underwood sings this with the skill of a veteran.

    It may not be Country, but what the heck, it's October so it must be Christmas.

    Coquet-Shack's View: If this gets pushed as a single, it'll sell well. It'll ensure the album does well anyway!

    Oh, and NASHVILLE: WHERE'S THE QUESTION MARK IN THE TITLE, or didn't you guys do grammar at school?





    And evidently the part about getting pushed as a single is pretty prophetic since it is already the #1 downloaded Country song in only it’s first day of availability.

    This was in my aircheck Friday email.

    I think this has a shot at becoming a Christmas classic & staple. Even if it is weird hearing Christmas music in Oct.. Give it a listen I think you'll have to agree, this one is very good.

    Hopefully one of these days, Carrie will record a Christmas album - I would love to hear her do O Holy Night.

    She does a great job with Do You Hear What I Hear?

    Re: Carrie Underwood

    Carrie has been in Canada this week doing pr stuff for Carnival Ride. She was on a couple of talk shows, one of which was called Much On Demand. Before they brought her out the hosts said they had a surprise for her. After the interview they did indeed surprise her with a Canadian Triple Platinum award plaque. Her trophy case is going to need some wall stretchers.

    She has such a clear voice that anything is going to sound good... and this is definitely lovely!

    Also fun to listen to was Kellie Pickler's "Santa Baby." Right up her alley.

    Re: Carrie Underwood

    Here is the chance of a lifetime. Carries leather seat up for auction. Current bid $600.00. This is for a charity that I’m sure Michael Vick wants no part of. There are thumbnails for viewing.

    CMTauctions.com - Country Music Television Auctions

    About The Auction
    We are offering a truly special opportunity to bid now for your chance to win the leather truck seat that was featured in Carrie Underwood's #1 award winning video, Before He Cheats, which won the CMT Music Award and ACM Award for Video of the Year in 2007.
    In the video, in addition to destroying the truck's exterior with a baseball bat, Carrie carved "my name into his leather seat," according to the song's lyrics, and a heart into the truck's leather driver's seat. The seat, which could either be loaded back into a truck or cleverly displayed in your home or office, is tan leather, and is a one-of-a-kind collectible that will be yours if you're the high bidder!
    Carrie has autographed and dated the seat to help raise money for two Nashville area special needs, high risk dog rescues. 100% of the net proceeds will be donated for the care of dogs (and a few cats, pigs, horses, goats, etc.) that would otherwise have no chance at a life without illness, abuse or neglect.

    Re: Carrie Underwood

    Carrie has just blogged on her fan site about the anticipation & nervousness she is beginning to experience with the release of Carnival Ride now just 17 days away. She mentioned her promotional trip to Canada & told everyone that this may be her last weekend to relax before the fervor begins in earnest. Sort of the calm before the storm. And there is no confirmation from her or her team on the following schedule, but her remarks lead you to believe that it could very well be true. They have "leaked" so to speak:

    Grand Ole Opry Oct. 9
    Grand Ole Opry Live - October 20 (GAC)
    Good Morning America - October 23 (ABC)
    Regis & Kelly - October 24 (Syndication)
