Carrie Underwood has made country history with her new album “Storyteller” by becoming the first country artist to have six consecutive career-starting records debut at No.1 their opening week.
Underwood, who first gained fame when she won Season 4 of American Idol, is the first country artist to accomplish such a feat, beating out Miranda Lambert’s previous record of five career-starting Billboard Top Country Albums. “Storyteller” has already sold over 177,000 copies –– and it’s only been in the market for less than two weeks.
Underwood’s label, Sony Music Nashville, eagerly took to Twitter to congratulate the “Smoke Break” star’s achievements.

Without a doubt, Underwood’s career has been a great addition to the country music industry. Almost one whole decade ago, Underwood released her first album “Some Hearts”, which became the best-selling album of 2006 in America. Tonight in Nashville, TN, she will be co-hosting the Country Music Awards with Brad Paisley for the eighth consecutive year.
Underwood is also nominated for two CMA Awards herself, and will perform at the American Music Awards later this month.
Come January 30, Carrie Underwood will tour her new album on her Storyteller Tour, with tickets going on sale this Friday. As of now, the tour has 40 destinations in the U.S. and Canada.
