Some Hearts has now become the best-selling, single-disc country album by a solo female in the new millennium.
“Some Hearts is also the best-selling, single-disc country album by a solo artist (male or female) in the last six years – since Tim McGraw Greatest Hits, released in November of 2000. ”
“And with January 10 SoundScan information, Some Hearts earns the further distinction of becoming the best-selling, single-disc country album by any artist (solo, male, female, group, duo, etc.) since the Dixie Chicks Home, released in August of 2002.”
