My redneck ma loves your music-A rare thing! | Reviewer: Jackie | 5/15/13
We a family of four live on a farm and work hard. My parents work so hard and try to fix our home and pay our bills. They allow us to have farm animals and promote us to do activities. I am a Young Marine and have made it to lance corporal. I look up to you as a way to succeed. Sometimes people like us need a boost of humanity to keep us going. My mom- so redneck just loves your songs- she is a acdc fan- but you get her going with most of your songs. Maybe you could come and help us fix our house and barn for animals as a surprise for mom and dad? had to ask. anyway, keep the good faith and attitude going and dont go bad!

How Carrie Underwood became famous | Reviewer: brittany norman | 4/26/10
Carrie Underwood was born March 10, 1983, in Checotah, Oklahoma. Their family owned a farm there. Her father Stephen, worked a paper mill, and her mother, Carole was an elementary school teacher. Carrie Underwood was the youngest of her two sisters Stephanie, and Shanna.
Music didn’t run in the little family, But Carrie started singing at her families church when she was 3. She even sang solos for student plays. She was told that she had “ a big voice” for a “little girl.” She was involved in her high school music program, but she kept telling people she was going to become a famous singer. Then she enrolled at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, and became more serious in her career choice. She chose broadcast journalism for her major and produced a student-run television program and wrote for the school paper, The Northeastern.
She was still taking her collage classes when her friends told her to audition for American Idol. At first, she resisted. However, she soon realized the if she didn’t audition, then she would graduate collage, and get a job and may never have the chance to tryout again. So one night after wrapping an appearance in the college country music show, arriving in St. Louis at 6 a.m. They had to be at the stadium at 8 a.m. to receive wristbands .To be eligible for the auditions. She had to wait some time before singing Martina McBride’s “Phones Are Ringing All Over Town” for American Idol supervising producer James Breen. Carrie didn’t think she did well, but the judges invited her back for the second day. As the weeks went by some contestants were voted off the show, until the finales on May, 25, 2005, when it was Carrie Underwood vs. Bo Bice. When Ryan Seacrest announced the winner, Carrie became America’s new idol.
She signed 19 recordings. Then she recorded a single that’s called “Inside Your Heaven” which debuted as a best selling song in the Nation!
Carrie Underwood was just an ordinary person going to college. Until she got a shot of winning American idol, she took that shot right away. She did not hang by and think about whether or not she needed to do it. She took what she had. That’s how Carrie Underwood became so famous.
