Glee, Bocelli, Now 32 Also Headed for Six-Figure Bows
She’s the one Idol that keeps on giving.

Hits to her record labels, that is. 19/Arista Nashville country crossover queen Carrie Underwood’s Play On, her third album and first since 2007’s Carnival Ride from the 2005 American Idol champ, is headed for a first-week bow at #1, with a total anywhere between 300-350k.
