Carrie Marie Underwood (1983-) is an American country singer and songwriter. At 22, Carrie, a country farm girl from Checotah, Oklahoma, auditioned for the fourth ''Series/AmericanIdol'' with "I Can't Make You Love Me". Although the judges were impressed, it wasn't until Underwood sang Heart's "Alone" that her true potential appeared. She won the final over Bo Bice and immediately proved Simon right: Like Music/KellyClarkson before her, Underwood became a star in her own right (yet unlike Clarkson has completely escaped association with the Idol brand) and took the CountryMusic world by storm. She has since won multiple Grammys and set a yet-to-be-surpassed benchmark for ''Idol'' success. So far, none of her singles have peaked at lower than second on at least one major country chart, by itself an impressive streak, but the strong sales of her four albums and omnipresence in two genres are next-to-impossible to ignore.

* BrokenStreak: Between the two ''Billboard'' country singles charts[[note]]only one before late 2012[[/note]] and the ''Mediabase'' country singles charts, Carrie has had exactly one single fail to reach the top on either: "Mama's Song" in early 2011, which was blocked by Music/TimMcGraw's "Felt Good on My Lips" on both publications.

Added DiffLines:

** "Church Bells" ringing three different times: At Jenny's wedding, at the service the morning after her husband got violent, and at her husband's funeral [[spoiler:after she killed him]].


Added DiffLines:

** "Church Bells" could be considered a DarkerAndEdgier version of the Music/DixieChicks' "Goodbye Earl".

* BrokenStreak: Between "Jesus, Take the Wheel" and "Undo It", all of Carrie's songs had gotten to #1 on at least one major country singles chart 12 singles in a row went to #1 on the ''Mediabase'' country charts, of which all but two ("Don't Forget to Remember Me" and "I Told You So") did the same on ''Billboard''. Then in early 2011, "Mama's Song" became her first to miss the top spot on ''Mediabase''. Since then, among her successive #1 hits, "Two Black Cadillacs" and "See You Again" went to #1 on ''Mediabase'' only and #2 on ''Billboard''.
** Following ''Billboard'''s split of the country charts into two separate charts[[note]]Country Airplay, which follows the old chart's tabulation of just airplay, and Country Songs, the former name of the Airplay chart, which now includes digital sales and non-country airplay[[/note]], the streak was broken again on Country Airplay with "Somethin' Bad", her duet with Music/MirandaLambert which only got to #7 there. However, the duet was released from one of Miranda's albums, and it still got to #1 on Country Songs.
** "Something in the Water" also only got to #3 on Country Airplay, her lowest ''solo'' peak there to date, but it was still #1 on Country Songs.

* NewSoundAlbum: ''Storyteller'' has some tracks produced by Zach Crowell (a more electronic sound akin to his work with Music/SamHunt, who coincidentally sings backing vocals on the Crowell-produced "Heartbeat") or Jay Joyce (a grittier rock sound similar to his work with Music/EricChurch), as opposed to longtime producer Mark Bright's trademark slickness.



* VocalEvolution: She's gone from belting nearly everything to a more diverse vocal and dynamic range. "Good Girl" has her doing some impressive rock growls.
