As she has been out of the scene for a while it is very possible that people will grab it for the curiosity.
But as big a build up as Carrie is getting for her album I am doubtful that Norah can dethrone her.
But if Norah has a hit at pop radio ahead of time. It is possible.
This is why I think it is important for Carries handlers to start courting pop. I know, I know,...I'm just sayin'!
Only Psymon could answer that question about Norah Jones & he isn't talking.
This is vaguely on topic, so I'll say it here : How do you think Carrie should debut the song and its video?
I say : YOUTUBE!
I'm sorry, but in today's world, intensive YouTube promotion is VERY important. The pattern really is 1) open YouTube 2) Oh, there's a new song by Carrie Underwood 3) Listen to song 4) Hey, I like this song 5) Open iTunes and buy the song.
I know that Carrie is very loyal to CMT, and debuts her videos there, but it's time for some VEVO/YouTube promotion! It'd be great for her international sales in particular!
No way Norah Jones can beat Carrie to the top. Anticipation for this album has been building up, and I haven't even heard about Norah's album until today.
No. I love Norah Jones and have all her albums-- but she won't beat Carrie. Her popularity/celebrity status has diminished quite a bit since then. I think Norah can pull in 100k maybe, but Carrie should be more around the 250-300k range hopefully, depending on how good Carrie's single does.
Norah isn't getting much radio airplay these days--- so that hurts her.
Oh, just saw Norah's last album opened with less than 200k!
Our #1 is safe then Unless Adele does something
There's a Good Girl sneak peek on Carrie's official YouTube page! AMAZING!!!!!
Well GG gets its first add before it even hits radio. It was added by KWOF in Denver.
"I feel like it's not about the accolades or the sales numbers or the, you know, awards or any of that. It's about helping people with their lives and making a difference that way."
-- Carrie Underwood (VH1 Behind The Music - Sept 2012)
I still think this song's debut position could be insane.
Does that mean they have it to play already?
YES! Go Denver! lol
Loving this! All the radio stations are tweeting like crazy about her clip video. Even my boring station tweeted it tonight!!
What label is Norah on? As long as it is not Big Machine, Carrie should be ok. Big Machine can make A diamond out of dirt, so they would worry me.
