Early Life And ‘American Idol’ Win

Carrie Marie Underwood was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma, on March 10, 1983. She spent her happy childhood singing and participating in rural activities on a farm. Singer Underwood first sought a degree in broadcast journalism at Northeastern State University after graduating from high school. But when she tried out for American Idol in her senior year of 2004, her aspirations to become a singer were rekindled. She not only made it through the audition, but she also won the whole thing, which started her music career.

Commercial Success

Underwood’s debut album, “Some Hearts,” released in 2005, became a massive success, quickly going multi-platinum. Hit songs from the album, such as “Inside Your Heaven” and “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” helped her win multiple accolades, including the Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

With more albums, “Carnival Ride” (2007) and “Play On” (2009), she maintained her commercial success. The last two albums had number-one songs including “Before He Cheats” and “Cowboy Casanova.” Because of her versatility as a musician, Country Singer Underwood was able to experiment with both anthems and more subdued songs.
