Despite winning two Grammy’s, Carrie Underwood
, winner of American Idol
season four, is quite apprehensive when it comes to her next album.
In November of 2005, Underwood released her first album, Some Hearts
, which established her as a multi-platinum selling artist. The American country music singer and guitarist swept all three major music awards, including an American Music Award, eight Billboard Music Awards and two Grammys. The album sold over three hundred copies in the first week and has since been certified quadruple platinum. “Jesus Take the Wheel,” the first single, reached #39 on the Billboard Country Chart in its first week, setting a record, and then continued to top the charts for six consecutive weeks. Her other singles such as “Some Hearts,” “Don’t Forget to Remember Me,” and "Before He Cheats," aslo topped the airwaves.
With this much fame and triumph, the former American Idol
champ is fearful of what’s next to come. She says, “I think the scariest part is gonna come with album two," she sighed. "I've had so much success [with my first record.]."
But despite the anxiety, she claims that she will not try to outdo herself. She adds, "I'm not gonna try to top the first one." She plans to release her second album sometime in 2007, and only time will tell if she will able to surpass or even equal the success of her first album.
