American singer Carrie Underwood has released four studio albums and twenty singles. Underwood rose to fame after winning the fourth season of American Idol in 2005. Her debut album, Some Hearts, was released in 2005 and is the fastest selling debut country album in Nielsen SoundScan history.[1] It also became the best-selling solo female country debut in Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) history, as well as the top selling debut album of any American Idol contestant in the United States.[2]

Her second album, Carnival Ride, was released in 2007 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 charts. During the first week it sold 527,000 copies, at the time the best sales week by a female solo country artist since Shania Twain's Greatest Hits sold 530,000 copies in its first week back in 2004.[3] The album has since been certified 3x Platinum.

Underwood released her third studio album, Play On, on November 3, 2009. It debuted at number one on the Top Country Albums chart and the all-genre Billboard 200. It features the number one singles "Cowboy Casanova", "Temporary Home", and "Undo It", as well as the number two single, "Mama's Song". The album has since been certified 2x Platinum in the US and Platinum in Canada. On June, 2011, the album re-entered the Australian Albums Charts for both the ARIA National Top 50 and the Country Top 20 albums at number 14 and number one, respectively, giving Underwood her first number one album in Australia.

On May 1, 2012, Underwood released her fourth album, Blown Away. In the United States, it sold 267,000 albums in its first week and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and the Top Country Albums charts. It debuted at number one in Canada's Top 200 all-genre albums chart and Top 100 Country albums chart, being immediately certified Gold. The album also debuted at number one on Australia's Top 20 Country Albums and number four on the all-genre Top 50 Albums.[4]

Underwood has sold in excess of 64 million records (abums plus singles) globally.[5][6] In the United States, she has sold over 14.5 million album copies and 29.6 million digital single downloads, making her the best-selling artist in history of the American Idol franchise in U.S. sales.[7][8] She is the fourth biggest album seller among artists who have debuted the past 10 years.[9]
