Carrie Underwood is Riding High

Talk about shattering the idea of an American Idol curse! Carrie Underwood's new album, Carnival Ride, has debuted in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200. Even her super-popular, Grammy-winning debut album, Some Hearts, didn't get there, only hitting as high as No. 2. It's a good life for Carrie these days. Girl is looking good, is surrounded by good press, and reportedly has a new beau in Gossip Girl's hottie, Chace Crawford. With her second solid record in the bag, Carrie's already proved that she's so much more than a reality show flash-in-the-pan winner. Know what I mean, Reuben Studdard?
