Carrie Underwood is preparing to release her first-ever hits collection, and her longtime fans are clamoring for every tidbit they can get about the upcoming project.

Underwood has become one of the most successful artists across all musical genres since she won 'American Idol' in 2005, and the new collection not only documents her musical journey up to this point, it gives a hint about the future with two new tracks.

The singer has been slowly revealing little bits and pieces of information about the album, which is virtually guaranteed to be one of the big hits of the holiday shopping season. Read on to find out everything you need to know about the album.

The Title

Underwood’s new record is titled ‘Greatest Hits: Decade #1.’

The Cover

The cover of ‘Greatest Hits: Decade #1′ is shot in classic black-and-white style, with Underwood dressed simply and laying back against the arm of a sofa. It's both simple and elegant, and it serves as a reminder that she hasn't changed that much from the small town girl we all first fell in love with on 'American Idol.'

The Release Date

19 Recordings / Arista Nashville will release the record on Dec. 9.

Ordering Information

'Greatest Hits: Decade #1' is available for physical pre-order here, and digital pre-order here.

The Single

Underwood released the album's lead single, 'Something in the Water,' in September. The song is an unabashed message of Christian faith: “Couldn’t fight back the tears, so I fell on my knees / Saying God, if you’re there come and rescue me / Felt love pouring down from above / Got washed in the water, washed in the blood."

The Songs

Underwood's new collection will showcase her past hits, including ‘Jesus, Take the Wheel,’ ‘Before He Cheats,’ ‘Just a Dream,’ ‘Temporary Home’ and more.

It features two new songs -- 'Something in the Water' and ‘Little Toy Guns,' which Underwood co-wrote with Chris DeStefano and Hillary Lindsey -- as well as four songs in never-before-released versions. ‘How Great Thou Art’ features Vince Gill, recorded live at ACM Presents: Girls’ Night Out, while ‘So Small,’ ‘Last Name’ and ‘Mama’s Song’ are all presented in the original work tapes from the writing sessions.
