Carrie Underwood Scores Her 24th No. 1 With “Church Bells”
She’s done it again! Carrie Underwood has snagged her 24th No. 1 single with her current radio hit, “Church Bells.”
The song hit the top spot on the Billboard country charts as well as on the Mediabase country charts this week, marking Underwood’s third chart-topping single off her latest album, Storyteller. The twangy hit also made for a very popular concert music video, which documented what a standard concert by Underwood looks like on her Storyteller Tour.
This No. 1 single comes on the heels of her other recent hits, “Smoke Break,” and “Heartbeat,” which features the background vocals of Sam Hunt.
At the moment, Underwood has been celebrating her success on a quick break from her tour as she just went on vacation in Mexico with her husband, Mike Fisher, for their sixth wedding anniversary. She’ll head back out on the road for the second leg of the Storyteller Tour starting in Anchorage, Alaska, on August 31.
With football season on its way, Underwood also recorded a brand new theme to the 2016 NFL Sunday Night Football called “Oh Sunday Night,” modeled after her 2014 hit with Miranda Lambert, “Something Bad.”
Come November, Underwood will take up her co-hosting duties once again with fellow country artist Brad Paisley to host the 50th Annual CMA Awards on November 2 from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The awards will air that night on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.
