From the stages of American Idol, to Sunday night football Carrie Underwood is a real life American Cinderella Story.
If you were like me and the other 30 million viewers that tuned in every Tuesday and Wednesday night for American Idol in 2005, then you got to witness the birth of Carrie Underwood’s superstardom as it grew right before your eyes! Back then I don’t think people realized just how big she would become, but she has proven that with time and dedication you really can make your dreams come true.
When asked why she was so nervous by Randy Jackson she looks at Simon Cowell during her audition and says, “He’s Scary”. She also omitted that she was on the football team in her home town of Oklahoma, and had a 3rd nipple! She also has the ability to cluck like a chicken, and after clucking for Randy and Simon she manage to “Cluck her way into American Idol” singing I Can’t Make You Love Me, by Bonnie Raitt see below.
Although she had never been on a plane before and was terrified of the thought she managed to concur her fears both in the air and on stage and go on to be one of the most successful idols in American Idol history! So what does Carrie Underwood have that other idol winners didn’t have to garner the same level of success? If Idol producers knew the answer to that question, each idol winner would have the same level of success. Is it her talent, marketability, her infectious bubbly personality, her beauty, or is she so driven that she refused to let herself fail? Whatever the answer, it is working for her, she is no longer Carrie Underwood from American Idol, she is Carrie Underwood a country legend.
Successful people have a social responsibility to make the world a better place and not just take from it. – Carrie Underwood
Her debut single post idol “Inside Your Heaven”, was the first country music single in history to debut number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. Her first album Some Hearts attracted country music fans as well as pop with hits like “Before He Cheats”, “Wasted”, and “Jesus Take the Wheel”. Her debut album Some Hearts became the best-selling solo female debut album in country music history, her songs could be seen in Rom Coms like “Americas Sweethearts”. Five albums, a wedding and two babies later it is clear that Carrie is here for the long hall and there is nothing she can’t do! She really is a real life all Aamerican Cinderlla Story.
