Is Phillip Phillips the next Carrie Underwood?

"American Idol" season 11 winner Phillip Phillip's debut album "The World From The Side Of The Moon" debuts at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart with 169,000 units sold, as his hit single "Home" sees sales over 2.5 million — making it the most successful coronation song of any "American Idol" winner. "Home" was used as the soundtrack for the 2012 US Olympics Women's Gymnastics team as they made their London debut this summer and more recently has become the unofficial song for Hurricane Sandy relief. Entertainment Weekly called "The World From The Side Of The Moon" as "the most relevant debut album the Idol machine has cranked out in years."
