Carrie Underwood was born Carrie Marie Underwood on March 10th, 1983 in Muskogee, Oklahoma and was raised on a farm in nearby Checotah, Oklahoma. She was not straight from the farm as everyone supposed, but had attempted a singing career when she was thirteen, with her manager attempting to get her a recording contract. At the time, she was too young to impress the record execs at Capitol Records. Her high school salutatorian, Carrie went to Northeaster State University where she competed in many beauty pageants, becoming the Miss NSU runner-up in 2004. A singer, pianist, guitarist, and even a yodeler, Carrie has always preferred country music, but when she was selected for the 4th American Idol competition in 2005, she was able to demonstrate an ability to excel in a variety styles.

After her win, Carrie received a recording contract with Arista Records, and her first single "Inside Your Heaven," was released on June 14th, 2005. It debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Carrie has sung the National Anthem at sports events and has appeared in commercials, notably for Hershey's Chocolate. Her second single, "Jesus, Take the Wheel," came out that same year has been an even greater hit, due in part to considerable radio airplay. In November 2005, her album appeared in the stores. It became #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and was the biggest debut of any country artist since 1990. It became double platinum early the next year, becoming the fastest selling country album in the history of Nielsen SoundScan.

[Carrie is one of the few significant artists to come from Oklahoma, another recent musical entry being the All American Rejects, best known for their hit "Dirty Little Secret" and their 2005 album "Move Along."] People interested in Carrie would likely also be interested in "Where are you Christmas" Faith Hill or a Faith Hill biography, to read the parallels between the two excellent country singers.
