About Carrie Underwood:
Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television, and film, where the seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner has amassed nearly 100 major honors, sold more than 65 million records worldwide, and recorded 20 #1 singles, ten of which she co-wrote. The first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, Underwood was recognized as Pollstar’s top female country touring artist for her headlining tours in 2008, 2010, and 2012. Her four albums, Some Hearts, Carnival Ride, Play On, and Blown Away – each certified multi-Platinum or Platinum, and each an American Music Awards winner as Country Album of the Year – tallied 38 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with songs that have now been streamed more than 800 million times worldwide. In 2013, she starred as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s three-hour holiday blockbuster, the Emmy®-winning The Sound of Music Live!, whose airings attracted 44 million viewers. A proud member of the Grand Ole Opry since 2008, Underwood recently wrapped her second season as the musical voice of primetime television’s #1 program, Sunday Night Football, and in 2014 returned for the seventh consecutive year as co-host of the CMA Awards. She closed 2014 with the release of her first hits collection, Greatest Hits: Decade #1, whose Platinum-certified single, “Something in the Water,” earned Underwood her seventh GRAMMY Award, honored for Best Country Solo Performance.
