Last.fm Trends: Carrie Underwood – A True Entertainer
Carrie Underwood is no stranger to the Academy of Country Music Awards - having won no less than eleven out of the twenty nominations she’s had at the awards since 2006
Trends looks more closely at Underwood’s recent scrobbles to see what her chances might be of winning.
With a total scrobble count of 9,387,166, Carrie Underwood stands tall as one of the most scrobbled artists tagged as country on Last.fm, alongside true legends such as Johnny Cash, Brad Paisley and one of her main challengers to the Top Female Vocalist award this year, Taylor Swift.
She can be sure of one award, though, as she will be proudly presented with the award for ACM Girls Night Out: Special Achievement Award. The award is presented due to her being the first female artist to win the award for Entertainer of the Year twice, in 2009 and 2010.
Her recent scrobbles on Last.fm prove to be impressive reading. Her two top weekly tracks, “Before He Cheats” and “Cowboy Casanova”, are both taking in over 2,000 listeners a week, with the latter being from her most recent album Play On.
The continued success of “Before He Cheats” (1,032,102 total scrobbles), the third single from her debut album in 2007, shows that fans are still listening to tracks spanning her whole career – a quality that the artist will surely be proud of heading into this year’s awards.
