If you need to tell Carrie Underwood story from her perspective you need to forget the vibrations surrounding her recently released anthemic song – The Champion and her video that was chosen to open the NBC Super Bowl LII.
You must also resist the urge to talk about Jesus taking the Wheel and start with the moment when it first came into the spotlight as a competitor in the fourth season of Simon Fuller’s television series – American Idol singing competition.
Underwood’s performance at the beginning of the singing competition earned one of the judges Simon Cowell predicts that she would not only win the contest but that she would do better than previous American Idol winners in the music industry. Simon’s predictions began to come true when Carrie on the 25th day of May 2005 became the winner of the contest by winning for herself a recording contract worth about $1 million and a Ford Mustang among other things.
If anyone hesitated to agree with Cowell’s prognosis for Carrie’s future in the music world it didn’t take long before what Simon saw became apparent. She dropped her first single Inside Your Heaven in mid-June 2005 and broke several records. The song did more than make its debut at number 1 on Billboard Hot 100. Check the records you’ll find that Inside Your Heaven made Carrie the first country musician to make her debut on Billboard Hot 100 and the song has risen to the top of the Canadian singles charts and Billboard Pop 100 charts. Nearly a million copies have been sold.
Underwood didn’t wait for the flames of the first single to ignite before releasing his first album Some Hearts. The album released on November 15 2015 also pulverized a handful of records. Singles like Before He Cheats Don’t Forget to Remember Me and Jesus Take the Wheel have made this album a huge success for Carrie. It sold quickly and beyond expectations; the Recording Industry Association of America had to certify it platinum eight times.
To date, Carrie Underwood has five studio albums and they are all platinum or multi-platinum certified. In addition, each of these albums earned him the American Music Award for his album Favorite Country. The star could boast of having won seven Grammy Awards. In addition, she has received more than 100 major awards.
