Carnival Ride Rules the Charts

by at . Comments

Carrie Underwood rules.

Carnival Ride is the number-one album in the country, having sold a staggering 527,000 copies during its debut week.

This is the American Idol winner’s first top-ranked album. We're guessing it won't be her last, however.

Underwood Rocks Out

Carrie's new disc bests her previous effort, 2005’s Some Hearts, which debuted to 315,000 copies sold in its first week. Chace Crawford must be so proud!
