You may recognize Carole Underwood from Carrie Underwood's video for 'Mama's Song.' The ballad is a tribute to the matriarch of the family, a woman who was nearby for Carrie's run on 'American Idol.' The two are very close, with Carole being somewhat of a worry-wart. She admits that she has the singer call to say she's gotten home safe when she knows she's driving around Nashville alone. And she might soon lose her invitation to award shows. "I'm a crier. At last year's CMA Awards, the whole time she sang her song I sat out there and cried," Carole Underwood says, adding that it drives Carrie crazy.
