Carrie Underwood's First #1 Album!

In a few hours, the new Billboard Top 200 album chart will be out for everyone to see... Given there were no other releases expected to sell even 100,000 units in their first week, it was a foregone conclusion last week that Carrie Underwood's new album Carnival Ride would debut this week at number on the chart. The sales figures are in, and the numbers are pretty astounding. The original estimates had Carrie's sophomore CD selling in the 400-450,000 unit range this first week. Well, Carrie blew those numbers out of the water with over 527,000 units sold! Not only that, but the album shipped approximately 1.4 million copies! Needless to say, Carrie will get her RIAA platinum certification for this album just as soon as it's eligible. In fact, that first certification she gets may even be a double platinum one! Congratulations to Carrie on her first ever #1 album!
