Carrie Underwood's fourth album, "Blown Away," is No. 1 for the second consecutive week on Billboard's Top Country & all-genre 200 albums sales chart.

This marks the first time since 2010 that a country artist has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's all-genre 200 albums sales chart for two back-to-back weeks. "Blown Away" made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country albums sales chart the week of its release, making Underwood only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. "Blown Away" also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making her only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1.

Underwood will perform at the Maverik Center in October.
