    Carrie Underwood Heading for Third No. 1 Album on Billboard 200

    Carrie Underwood Heading for Third No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 | Billboard.biz

    Country superstar Carrie Underwood's Blown Away is set to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week. The album should sell around 275,000 copies by week's end on Sunday, May 6, according to industry sources.

    Blown Away is her fourth album and will become her third chart-topper following 2009's Play On and 2007's Carnival Ride. Her debut release, 2005's Some Hearts, bowed and peaked at No. 2.

    The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on the morning of Wednesday, May 9.

    Blown Away is Underwood's first album to be released outside of the always-busy fourth quarter, where sales are amplified as consumers are shopping for holiday gifts. Thus, it's not a huge surprise to see how Blown Away's start is a bit less than that of her earlier albums. Play On launched with 318,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan, Carnival Ride bowed with 527,000 and Some Hearts did 315,000.

    I don't know... But if we look at the last few weeks predictions, no, they don't factor in promo.

    I hope it is more than that....the haters won't understand that the different time period release means less sales. They will just see it as "less sales."

    haters will always find something to hate. No point even giving them any credit.

    Yay! I'm thrilled to hear that Blown Away will debut on No.1. Carrie has done it again! I love the fact she doesn't take her success for granted. She's grounded. I'm proud of her. Well deserved! Thank you for posting, Ann055.

    Well lets not get too excited. She is only up against one other contender and that is Norah Jones.

    If it wasn't the sales numbers, it would've been something on critical response, if it wasn't that it would be something about Carrie being only a "country artist" it she's not better the ____ or ____ or ___. For this we are just gonna need a thick skin because I'm sure it will get ugly.

    It's actually a Taylor Swift fan masquerading as a Kelly Clarkson fan. :S
