No. 33: Carrie Underwood, ‘Before He Cheats’ – Top 100 Country Songs

Before He Cheats
Sony Music Nashville

‘American Idol’ introduced Carrie Underwood to music listeners, but the fresh-faced Oklahoma native’s debut album, ‘Some Hearts,’ cemented her status as a country superstar. ‘Before He Cheats,’ our No. 33 entry on the Top 100 Country Songs list, gave Underwood her second No. 1 country single in 2006 and fueled the album to sell more than seven million copies.

Written by Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins, ‘Before He Cheats’ spent five weeks at No. 1 and became the fourth most-purchased country song in iTunes history with more than three million downloads. The hit earned Underwood nine major music awards, including Country Song of the Year at the 2008 Grammys.

Next: Song No. 32
