Megastar Carrie Underwood recently hit a record five for five as her newly released Greatest Hits: Decade #1, 19 Recordings/Arista Nashville, has become her fifth consecutive album to debut at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums sales chart! The 25 song collection, which also includes her new single, the GRAMMY®-nominated hit, “Something in the Water” – tops the charts once again with its first-week sales of 94,000. According to Nielsen from SoundScan, delivering the best-selling debut for a hits collection by an artist in any genre of music in more than six years, Carrie has conquered it all.
Since November of 2005, when the newly emerged Underwood arose on the country music scene, her now seven times Platinum debuting album, Some Hearts, has no female artist ever debuted with as high as an opening-week sales rank for a hits package. Greatest Hits: Decade #1 has also powered its way to the Top 5 spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, debuting at #4, with the chart’s sales and streaming methods being the equal to that of 103,000 albums.

Kicked off by a whirlwind record-setting success, the Gold-certified, Top-5 and climbing the charts first single, “Something in the Water” (written by Underwood, Chris DeStefano, and Brett James), Greatest Hits: Decade #1 also includes the new song which is sure to be another top selling hit, “Little Toy Guns” (also written by Underwood, Chris DeStefano, along with Hillary Lindsey) and four additional songs debuting in never before released versions, on top all 18 of her #1 hits.
“One of the most spectacular elements of Carrie Underwood’s career continues to be the sheer depth and breadth of her music, whatever the subject matter, from the most nuanced performances to songs that just blow the roof off,” stated Sony Music Nashville Chairman & CEO Gary Overton. “With her Greatest Hits package debuting at #1, and ‘Something in the Water’ already a massive hit, it’s an incredible testament to how profoundly Carrie’s songs have connected with fans over the past 10 years, as well as the awesome promise of the decades of music still to come.”
