Carrie Underwood Radio

Carrie Underwood is seeing some of the best returns of her career with her latest single.  Since its September 29th release "Something in the Water" has logged over 124,000 downloads, which marks the best sales week ever for one of her songs.  It's also the best first week sales this year for a single by a female country artist. 

In addition, "Water" is giving Carrie the best chart debut of her career.  The song is starting its run at number 17 on the Billboard country Airplay list, which is also the highest chart opening this year by any solo artist. 

"Something in the Water" is entering the Mediabase country Airplay chart at number 25, which ties Carrie's previous best -- 2007's "So Small" -- and is one of the best openings on that chart of any artist in 2014. 

Congratulations, Carrie!
