Carrie Underwood Signs New Deal With Capitol Records Nashville
“I’m so thrilled that Carrie has decided to make Capitol Records Nashville and UMG her home globally," said Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group Sir Lucian Grainge.
"As a talented writer, recording artist, performer and actor, Carrie is that exceptionally rare artist who can do it all. I know I speak on behalf of our teams around the world when I say that we look forward to executing her creative vision and bringing her musical career to the next level.”
According to The Tennessean, Underwood joined Sony Music Nashville immediately after winning "American Idol" in 2005. Her early single "Jesus, Take the Wheel" soared to the top of country radio airplay charts and her subsequent singles including "Before He Cheats" and "Wasted" cemented an enviable career that 12 years later still includes No. 1 songs and awards. In November, Underwood was named the Country Music Association's Female Vocalist of the Year at the 50th CMA Awards.
Underwood released her fifth studio album, “Storyteller,” in October of 2015. The album has sold more than 1 million copies, and all four of its singles topped the Country Radio Airplay charts, including "Smoke Break" and "Dirty Laundry," her 25th No. 1 song.
