Carrie Underwood celebrated her 37th birthday with the news that her first book, Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life (Dey Street Books), has become an instant New York Times bestseller, entering the highly-competitive Advice, How-To & Miscellaneous list at No. 2. Additionally, the book hit No. 1 on Amazon during its first week of publication and is currently No. 3 on Amazon’s “most sold” nonfiction chart.
Underwood kicked of a multi-city promo tour last week with personal appearances in Brooklyn, NY; Stamford, CT and Nashville, TN, all of which sold out in under a minute. She took over the NBC airwaves on March 3rd with appearances on the 8, 9 and 10 am hours of The Today Show, competed in a “Fittest of the Fit” challenge on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on March 6th and cooked with Rachael Ray on March 9th. Underwood also graces the covers of Women’s Health and Parade Magazine, with extensive print and online coverage in InStyle, People, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, and more.
Additionally, on the eve of the publication of the book, Underwood launched her new fitness app, fit52, on March 2nd, which is now available for download on iOS, a holistic wellness platform designed to encourage and support users on their personal wellness journey. March also marks her fifth anniversary as founder and lead designer of her fitness and lifestyle brand, CALIA by Carrie Underwood, which launched in 2015 and is exclusively available at DICK’S Sporting Goods nationwide and online at calia.com.
