    Carrie Underwood's 'Blown Away" Album Certified Platinum Today???

    Roughstock is reporting that Carrie's "Blown Away" album has been certified platinum today.


    Make it 4 for 4 for Carrie Underwood as today she has seen her fourth album Blown Away become her fourth album to be certified Platinum (the others are all multi-platinum). In addition to becoming her latest certified album, the country superstar has seen the album's title track "Blown Away" become her 16th (again, all of her official singles) Top 10 hit.


    She has spent six non-consecutive weeks at #1 on the Top Country Albums chart and also earned her seventh Female Vocalist of the Year nomination from the Country Music Association for the 46th Annual CMA Awards. Carrie will be co-hosting the awards show for the fifth time with her friend and fellow Arista Nashville label mate, Brad Paisley. The show will air Thursday, November 1, 2012 from 8-11PM /ET on ABC TV affiliates nationwide.


    "Blown Away"'s placement in the Top 10 this week gives the star a new record as she is the only female artist to have scored so many Top 10 hits in Billboard Magazine's 68-year history!

    Carrie Underwood "Blown Away" 4th Consecutive Platinum Album; Single is 16th Consecutive Top 10 hit | New Country Music, Listen to Songs & Video | Roughstock.com

    I would assume Country. Still, that's an amazing feat. 68 years is a heckuva long time.

    As some have done you create a million and you even give some of them away to get the platinum certification because it is based on shipments not sales..

    lol! Maybe the CMA voters need to be reminded of Carrie's accomplishments since I do sometimes think they take her for granted. It's like look you guys totally overlooked BA and now it is certified platinum.

    Carrie is the only female artist to have 16 consecutive Top 10 Billboard Country chart songs. The key word is "consecutive" as Reba and Dolly have more than 16 #1 Billboard Country songs.

    What makes this record practically impossible to beat is that it is also right from the beginning.
