Carrie Underwood Biography
Carrie Underwood was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in March of 1983. She grew up on her parent’s farm in Checotah, Oklahoma. Underwood began performing as a child at the Robbins Memorial Talent Show as well as her local church, Lion’s Club, and local events. When she was 14, a friend helped her to travel to Nashville, Tennessee, for an audition when she was 14. Although Capital Records accepted her, there was a change of management and her contract was cancelled.
Underwood was a senior in high school when she heard about auditions of the 2005 season of the popular American talent show American Idol. She tried out for the show in St. Louis, Missouri, and not only won a place among the 12 finalists, but eventually went on to win first place. Her debut single, Inside Your Heaven, was released soon afterwards. She also appeared on the American Idol Live! tour. Underwood has since gone on to become one of the most popular country artists ever. She has sold more than 22 million singles and more than 14 million albums around the world. Underwood is also the top money making act to come out of American Idol, selling more than 18.5 million albums and earning more than $66 million in touring revenue. Underwood has also won numerous awards including 6 Grammy Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, 7 American Music Awards and 11 Academy of Country Music Awards. All of this only 10 years after she won her American Idol title.
Underwood was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2008, the youngest member of the Grand Ole Opry to date. She was inducted in into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame the following year. Underwood married NHL star Mike Fisher in July of 2010 and has picked up multimillion dollar endorsement deals with companies such as Skechers, Nintendo, Target, Hershey’s, and Nicole by OPI. Underwood has a current net worth of $55 million, which is sure to increase in the following years as this young star also has plans to launch her own line of clothing and accessories.
