Underwood is the only artist in history to have all nine of her consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Chart since the beginning of her career, which was launched by an “American Idol” victory.

Perry, a new mother, is known for her recent hit “Never Really Over,” which was the biggest streaming launch of her career. Just a few years ago, the star performed at the Super Bowl halftime show, which became the highest-rated in the event’s history.

Bryan, Perry’s fellow “American Idol” judge, has earned 26 No. 1 hits since the beginning of his career and recently won entertainer of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
