With more than 28 million sales of nearly two dozen Number One singles, Carrie Underwood has become the top-selling country artist in the digital world. She joins bestsellers like Jason Aldean, who was crowned the top-selling male country artist last summer with 21.5 million digital sales, as well as global pop stars Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, both of whom are ranked alongside Underwood in the Top Five all-genre list of female singers.

The news arrives on the heels of two new feats: the five-times platinum certification of "Before He Cheats," whose ongoing success makes Underwood one of five country artists to sell five million digital copies of a single song, and the gold certification of her newest single, "Little Toy Guns." Meanwhile, Greatest Hits: Decade #1 continues to break records as one of the best-selling hits albums of the past decade, with the record's first single, "Something in the Water," selling more than a million copies.

Underwood will stay in the awards-season spirit this Fall, when she co-hosts the CMA Awards with Brad Paisley for the eighth consecutive year. A new studio album is also in the works, although Underwood — who will reportedly draw inspiration from her new experiences with motherhood — has not announced a release date.
