    Carrie Underwood's Debut Album 'Some Hearts' Turns 10

    Forbes Welcome

    In the decade since its release, Underwood has become one of country music’s biggest stars. She has sold 58 million records worldwide, released 21 #1 singles and won seven Grammy Awards. She’s spent 38 weeks atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, and her songs have been streamed more than 1.5 billion times worldwide. She’s the only artist in the 51-year history of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart to have her first six albums debut at #1.

    Some Hearts is the album that started it all, catapulting Underwood from American Idol winner to international superstar, so let’s look back at some of the highlights of her pivotal debut album.

    Some Hearts has sold 7.4 million copies in the United States to date. It is the #1 best-selling country album of the past decade, and the #10 best-selling country album of the SoundScan era (beginning in 1991). Underwood became the first female artist in Billboard history to earn back-to-back honors for Top Country Album: the 2005 release was the best-selling country album of both 2006 and 2007, and the best-selling album of any genre in 2006. It’s the best-selling album ever by an American Idol contestant.

    Some Hearts was named Album of the Year at the 41st Academy of Country Music Awards and the 2006 Billboard Music Awards. It won Favorite Country Album honors at the 2007 American Music Awards and helped Underwood collect more than a dozen other major honors for New Artist and singles, including her first three Grammy Awards. Underwood won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 2007 and collected back-to-back wins for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for “Jesus, Take The Wheel” and “Before He Cheats” in 2007 and 2008, respectively.

    Five singles from Some Hearts reached #1: “Jesus, Take The Wheel,” “Don’t Forget To Remember Me,” “Wasted,” “Before He Cheats,” and Underwood’s American Idol coronation song, “Inside Your Heaven,” which was included as a bonus track on the album. “Inside Your Heaven” debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart in June 2005.

    “Before He Cheats,” released as a single in August 2006, propelled Underwood to mega-crossover pop success: in addition to reigning at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 5 weeks, the song reached the Top 5 on the Adult Top 40 chart and Top 10 on the Mainstream Top 40 and Adult Contemporary charts. It was the sixth longest-charting single in the history of the Billboard Hot 100, spending 64 consecutive weeks on the chart. The song, written by Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear, was the first-ever country song to reach 2 million downloads, and has since been certified 5x Platinum for more than 5 million sales.

    The photo gallery above celebrates highlights of each of the 10 years since Some Hearts helped Underwood steal the hearts of music fans across the world. Happy Anniversary, Carrie! Thanks for 10 years of amazing music.
