CSPC: Carrie Underwood Popularity Analysis

Carrie Underwood

Physical Singles Sales

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 3 ratio between one album and one physical single.

Some Hearts (2005) – 150,000 equivalent albums

Inside Your Heaven – 500,000

The only physical single of Underwood‘s career remains her initial American Idol winner hit, Inside Your Heaven. It was easily the #1 selling single on that format for the year 2005 in the US, when it scanned 447,664 units. Ironically, the runner up of the year was the exact same song. The losing finalist, Bo Bice, version shifted 334,775 with his rendition. Obviously, his solo career afterwards wasn’t as successful for him.

Wow cant believe Kelly Clarkson has better results than her. I guess she was much bigger than Clarkson in the US, but globally she’s not really that well known. Country singers always have a tough task of selling globally. Anyway, I remember watching Carrie Underwood audition for American Idol. And the moment I heard her voice I knew she would win. I was right, :). She’s such a great talent and she deserve the success she has.

BTW, you put the wrong cover on the Blown Away album. 😌

Hi Rell!

It is now fixed, thanks 🙂

Rell

Thanks. How does she rank among female country singers ? I know Shania is number one but is Carrie Underwood even in the top 5 ? Faith Hill, Dolly Parton, Shania and Leann Rimes are top 4. Who’s the fifth? Reba ? Carrie ?

RLAAMJR.

So Kelly Clarkson is still the best-selling music artist who came from American Idol. Carrie placing second is still huge cos I really didn’t expect her to be as successful as she now is.

Jazmine

I knew she would be very successful, and I knew exactly that she’s going to be huge in the US but not worldwide. She just have that star quality that many Idol contestant doesn’t possessed.

Does the above say that because I was going to say no way. In all aspects of her career, Carrie has passed Kelly – Sunday night football gig and the list goes on. She is considered one of the highest marketable artists by Forbes. Carrie is a super star in marketability.
