Carrie Underwood revealed in a recent interview with Access Hollywood that her first purchase when she hit it big was a sweatshirt in Paris for $1,200.  She also admitted that the purchase was a mistake.  Carrie didn’t understand the currency exchange and said she would never have bought as sweatshirt that was so expensive.  She was too embarrassed to return it after she made the realization.

“Now That’s What I Call Music Vol. 41” is due out in stores next week.  February 7th is the release date.  Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup” will be on the album as well as Luke Bryan and “I Don’t Want This Night to End” which we found out yesterday is doing quite well.

Chris Young is spending his fifth consecutive week at No.1 on the Billboard chart with his single “You.”  He joins Blake Shelton as one of the only two solo artists to top Billboard’s chart with their five most recent singles.

Speaking of Blake, he will be on your television this Thursday and Friday as part of the promotions leading up to the second season of “The Voice” kicking off right after the Super Bowl.  Blake will be on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Thursday at 11:35pm.  He will also appear on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Friday.

And even more news about Blake, he and his wifey, Miranda Lambert.  The husband and wife duo are penned in to perform their first ever TV performance together since their nuptials in May.  They two will be singing “America the Beautiful” at the Super Bowl this Sunday, February 5th, 2012.  And if you’re too curious to know what it’s going to sound like, you can purchase their version of the patriotic tune at iTunes now.
