Carrie Underwood burst onto the country music scene in 2005 with her big win on American Idol, who can forget that moment, right?! Since then Carrie has proven time and time again that she is an undeniable superstar, with success not only in music, but television and movies as well. To list all of her achievements would take a very long time, but here are just a few highlights. All seven of her albums are certified platinum or multi-platinum-selling more than 64 million records worldwide! She has also recorded 27 #1 singles, 14 of which she co-wrote, yes we said 27!!
Now let’s talk awards, Carrie has won over 100 major awards including 7 GRAMMY® Awards, 14 ACM Awards including 2 for Entertainer of the Year (the first female in history to win twice), 20 CMT Awards where she holds the record for the most award wins ever for the show, 7 CMA Awards, and 15 American Music Awards with her 7th win for Favorite Female Artist – Country and 6th win for Favorite Country Album for Cry Pretty, breaking the AMA record for Most Wins in the Favorite Country Album Category. We wonder where she keeps all of these awards!
Her music also transcends the country format. The hit event anthem she co-wrote, “The Champion” featuring Ludacris, opened NBC’s Super Bowl LII and was incorporated into the network’s coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. This past November, she hosted the CMA Awards for the 12th consecutive year and she returns this Fall for her eighth season as the voice of primetime television’s #1 program, NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
In 2019, Carrie celebrated her 11th anniversary as a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry. She also packed arenas across North America with The Cry Pretty Tour 360, featuring an all-female line-up with Maddie & Tae and Runaway June. The TD Garden was rockin’ when she took it over on October 10, 2019.
Carrie Underwood continuously breaks through the boundaries, with her millions of albums sold, dozens of awards, her own clothing line, and endless record-breaking feats on and off the charts, she has solidified her spot as a Country music icon.
