In The Spotlight This Week: Carrie Underwood

Carrie Marie Underwood won the hearts of America back in Season 4 of American Idol where she dominated the voting each week and was declared the winner of that season. Since then, she's been a reigning Grammy award winning, multi-platinum selling recording artist, Academy of Country Music Awards Entertainer of The Year, and has since been inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. She is also the first country artist in history to achieve nine number one singles from her first two albums on the Country Charts.

Carrie Underwood released her third album, Play On, on November 3, 2009. Her first single on the album, Cowboy Casanova, was released to country radio on September 14, 2009. Underwood now has the most top 10s on the country chart with the advance of Cowboy Casanova, among solo women this decade, followed by Faith Hill and Martina McBride each with 9. Prior to the release of her third album, Play On, three promotional singles were released to iTunes. Mama's Song released on October 12 followed by Temporary Home which was released on October 20 and Undo It released on October 27.

Underwood made a promotional stop in Singapore to promote her upcoming album, Play On, to the Asian media. The album will be released on November 2 in Singapore and various parts of Asia, followed by a November 3 release in the United States.
