The third single off Blown Away, “Two Black Cadillacs” was written by Carrie, Josh Kear, and Hillary Lindsey, and was recently certified Gold by the RIAA. The video for “Two Black Cadillacs” was No. 1 on this weekend’s GAC’s Top 20 Countdown, for a total of three weeks at the top spot.
Carrie’s 17th No 1. comes on the heels of her performance announcement for the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, where she is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year for the eighth consecutive year and Album of the Year for Blown Away. Having won a total of ten ACM Awards, Underwood is also a two-time Entertainer of the Year winner.
