849229c1-3048-8909-cc789d89351a1d3a_200Arista artist Carrie Underwood has already sold more than 10 million albums with her first two releases, and now the singer scores another 10, with her current single, “I Told You So,” becoming her tenth single to top a key sales or airplay chart. The accomplishment distinguishes the four-time Grammy winner as the first country artist in history ever to achieve 10 No. 1 singles on the strength of their first two albums. This week’s No. 1 is the fifth consecutive chart-topper from Underwood’s Carnival Ride album, which includes “Just a Dream” and three hits the singer co-wrote: “So Small,” “All-American Girl,” and “Last Name.” The recently crowned ACM Entertainer of the Year has also taken a former #1 song to the top of the country charts a second time – 21 years after Randy Travis took “I Told You So” to the top. She becomes the first country artist to return a song to #1 since Alan Jackson took Don Williams’ “It Must Be Love” back to the top nearly nine years ago. “I Told You So” is also available as a digital single in a duet version featuring Travis.
