Chart success continues for Carrie Underwood

Wednesday, February 15, 2006 – The chart success will continue for Carrie Underwood when the Billboard weekly charts are released Thursday. Underwood once again topped the song chart for the sixth straight week with "Jesus, Take the Wheel" and the album chart with "Some Hearts."
