Carrie Marie Underwood (Muskogee, 10 maart 1983) is een Amerikaans zangeres van countrymuziek. Ze was winnaar van American Idol in 2005.

Biografie[bewerken]

Underwood is geboren in het Muskogee Regional Medical Center en groeide op op de boerderij van haar ouders in het landelijke Checotah. Ze is de jongste van drie dochters van vader Stephen en moeder Carole Underwood. Haar zussen, Shanna Underwood Means en Stephanie Underwood Shelton zijn geboren in 1973 en 1970.

Underwood brak door toen ze de vierde editie van American Idol won.[1] Haar debuutalbum, Some Hearts, verkreeg in de Verenigde Staten zevenvoudig platina, en was het snelst verkopende country-album sinds de introductie van de Nielsen SoundScan in 1991.[2] Underwood is de eerste American Idol-winnaar die prijzen heeft gewonnen bij de grote prijzenshows. Zo kreeg ze een American Music Award, een Billboard Music Award en een Grammy Award.

Op 10 juli 2010 trad Carrie in het huwelijk met ijshockeyspeler Mike Fisher.

In Nederland is Carrie Underwood relatief onbekend.

Carrie zingt ook het liedje Ever Ever After dat terug te horen is in de film Enchanted waarin Patrick Dempsey, Amy Adams & James Marsden de hoofdrollen spelen.
