Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true country music superstar, going on to sell over 64 million records worldwide and win seven Grammy Awards.
Her debut album, Some Hearts, was certified over 8 times Platinum and became the best-selling debut release by a country artist in history, as well as the best-selling album by an American Idol winner.
Underwood has achieved 24 number one hits, 13 of which she co-wrote. In 2010 she made history as the first female artist to win the Academy of Country Music's Entertainer of the Year award twice. She is also a four-time winner of the CMA Female Vocalist of the Year honor. For her achievements, Carrie was inducted into Nashville's Grand Ole Opry in 2008.
With six number one albums that have all gone Platinum or multi-platinum, Underwood is one of the most successful country music stars in history. Her biggest hits include songs that were nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammys, including "Before He Cheats" and "Jesus, Take the Wheel."
