UPDATE: Carrie Underwood’s “Good Girl” Cracks Top 40

Carrie Underwood’s “Good Girl” is getting great reception from radio.

The single was released to radio just a few days ago (Feb. 23) and it’s already cracked the Top 40.  It debuted in today’s Mediabase chart, first appearing at #40 and then officially moving  up to #37.  Clearly, with “Good Girl,” Carrie’s got a climber!

“Good Girl” is the lead single off of Carrie’s upcoming album, which will be released on May 1.  The song is co-written by Carrie along with Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley.  It’s produced by Mark Bright, who produced her two previous albums as well as seven tracks from her debut album Some Hearts.  Read our review of the single here.  (Spoiler alert:  We like it!)

The single is currently available exclusively on iTunes.  It will be available through Amazon.com on Tuesday Feb. 28.

Since her recording debut in 2005, the American Idol winner has sold more than 14 million albums with Some Hearts, 2007’s Carnival Ride, and 2009’s Play On.  She’s a five-time GRAMMY Award winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry.

If that’s not enough, she’s joined Twitter!  Carrie can officially be found at @carrieunderwood.  There have been plenty of fakes out there, but this one is finally the real deal!
