Carrie Underwood’s chart-topping single, “Blown Away,” continues as country radio’s hottest song, as it claims a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard and Country Aircheck country airplay charts this week. The second single from Underwood’s million-selling Blown Away album, the title track follows the No. 1 success of her album’s debut single, “Good Girl,” earning Underwood a total of three weeks atop the country airplay charts in 2012, more than any other female country artist this year.
The newly Platinum-certified “Blown Away” marks Underwood’s 16th No. 1 single while the song’s dramatic music video also continues to be a runaway fan-favorite, with more than 5 million views to date on VEVO and a run of 10 consecutive weeks atop GAC’s fan-selected Top 20 Country Countdown.
Between dates headlining her third arena tour, “The Blown Away Tour,” she’ll return to Nashville to join Brad Paisley to host The 46th Annual CMA Awards, where Carrie is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. This year’s show will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Thursday, November 1, at 8 PM ET, on ABC.
In addition to her CMA nomination for Female Vocalist, Underwood is also a double-nominee for the upcoming American Music Awards, up for Favorite Female Artist – Country, as well as Favorite Album – Country, for Blown Away. Airing November 18 on ABC, the American Music Awards are fan-voted, with online balloting underway now at AMAVote.com.
