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." Underwood has also embarked on multiple headlining tours around the world, performing at events across the United States, England, Australia, Canada, Ireland, and Sweden.
In addition to her music career, Underwood has served as a spokeswoman for Almay cosmetics and launched her own fitness apparel line, Calia by Carrie.
For ten consecutive years she served as co-host of the Country Music Association Awards with Brad Paisley on ABC and performed the NFL's "Sunday Night Football" opening song for five consecutive years.
Her list of number one songs to top the Billboard country chart include "All-American Girl", "Wasted", "So Small", "Just A Dream", "Cowboy Casanova", "Temporary Home", "Undo It", "Good Girl", "Blown Away", "Church Bells", and "Something in the Water."
Considered one of American Idol's greatest success stories, Underwood's debut single "Inside Your Heaven" opened at #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Songs in 2005. Since then, she has become a world-class performer, headlining venues such as Madison Square Garden in New York and the Royal Albert Hall in London.
