CARRIE UNDERWOOD
Underwood was born March 10, 1983, in Muskogee, Oklahoma,[2] to Carole (Shatswell) and Steve Underwood.[3] She is the youngest of three daughters and was raised on her parents' farm in the nearby rural town of Checotah.[4] Her father worked in a sawmill while her mother taught elementary school.[5] She has two older sisters, Shanna and Stephanie.[6] Extremely hyperactive, she was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder at age five and was prescribed Ritalin and Dexedrine, medicines she still takes as an adult.[7] During her childhood, Underwood performed at Robbins Memorial Talent Show, and sang at her local church, First Free Will Baptist Church.[8] She later sang for local events in Checotah, including Old Settler's Day and the Lion's Club.[9] A local admirer arranged for her to go to Nashville when she was 14 to audition for Capitol Records.[8] In 1996, Capitol Records was preparing a contract for Underwood but canceled it when company management changed. Underwood said of the event, "I honestly think it's a lot better that nothing came out of it now, because I wouldn't have been ready then. Everything has a way of working out."[10] While at Checotah High School, she was an Honor Society member, a cheerleader, and played basketball and softball.[11] Underwood graduated from Checotah High School in 2001 as salutatorian.[9] She chose not to pursue singing after graduation. She said, "After high school, I pretty much gave up on the dream of singing. I had reached a point in my life where I had to be practical and prepare for my future in the 'real world'".[11] She attended Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, graduating magna cum laude in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in mass communication and an emphasis in journalism.[12] She spent part of one of her summers as a page for Oklahoma State Representative Bobby Frame.[13] She also waited tables at a pizzeria, worked at a zoo, and at a veterinary clinic.[11] Underwood is an alumna of the Alpha Iota chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority.[14] For two years during the summer, she performed in Northeastern State University's Downtown Country show in Tahlequah. She competed in numerous beauty pageants at the university and was selected as Miss NSU runner-up in 2004 Underwood's music career began with the release of her first single, "Inside Your Heaven", on June 14, 2005. The song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, with Underwood becoming only the third artist to bow in the top slot since chart policy changed in 1998.[23] She also broke Billboard chart history as the first country music artist ever to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100 and the song became the first song from a country artist to go to No. 1 on the Hot 100 since country group Lonestar's "Amazed" did so in 2000.[24] "Inside Your Heaven" is the only single by a solo country artist in the decade of 2000-2009 to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[25] It also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Pop 100 and on the Canadian Singles Chart, topping it for seven consecutive weeks, becoming the longest-running single of 2005 in Canada. It sold nearly one million copies and was certified gold by the RIAA and double platinum by the CRIA.Underwood's fourth album, was released on May 1, 2012.[147] Underwood has said that this album features songs with a "darker storyline".[148] "Blown Away" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, the Country Albums Chart and the Digital Albums chart in the US, selling more than 267,000 in its first week.[149] The first single, "Good Girl", was released to the iTunes Store on February 23, 2012.

It was a massive success, selling over 2 million copies, being certified Triple Platinum, reaching the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, the number-one spot on the Billboard Country Airplay and the Top 2 of the Top Country Songs, where it became Underwood's 16th Top 10 hit on Hot Country Songs chart, a record among women in the tally's 68-year history.[155] The album was the 7th best-selling album of 2012, the second best-selling country album of the year and the second best-selling release by a female artist in 2012.[156] It has been certified Double Platinum by the RIAA and sold over 1.7 million copies in the United States alone.[157] In August 2012, it was announced that Underwood would have her very own VH1 Unplugged (called "VH1 Presents: Carrie Underwood Unplugged") and VH1 Behind The Music episodes.[158] "Two Black Cadillacs", the third single from the album, was released on November 26.
