Carrie Underwood became country music’s first ‘American Idol’ winner in May 2005. She’s since sold more albums than anyone in the show’s history — all four of her albums have gone Platinum or multi-Platinum. Underwood is the youngest of three girls born to Stephen and Carole. She jokes that she wasn’t planned, and it seemed like she was an only child growing up in Checotah, Okla. After graduating second in her class, she studied Broadcasting in college before auditioning for ‘Idol.’ Romantically, she’s had several high-profile boyfriends, including NFL quarterback Tony Romo and actor Chace Crawford. On July 10, 2010, Underwood married Mike Fisher, an NHL star who at the time played for the Ottawa Senators. They now live together in Nashville.
Birthday: March 10, 1983
Top Songs: 'Before He Cheats,' 'Undo It,' 'Blown Away'
Fun Fact: Carrie is in the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority.
Perhaps someone realized two of country music’s biggest female stars might not take the ACM stage at all on Sunday night. Perhaps this was the plan all along. Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift aren’t scheduled to perform, but both have just been announced as presenters for the 2014 ACM Awards.
The first-ever iHeartRadio Country Festival was a smashing success on Saturday (March 29) in Austin, Texas, featuring star-studded performances, a surprise collaboration, and even a little bit of rapping (and this time, it wasn't Nelly!).
