ABOUT THE BOOK

From Oklahoma small town girl to platinum recording artist, Carrie Underwood has transformed before America's eyes like a character in a modern fairy tale. Though Carrie began singing at the precocious age of three in her church choir, by the time she was twenty-one, a career in singing was far from her mind. Instead, the college senior was looking forward to graduation and pursuing a career in broadcast journalism.

One fateful day in 2004, though, Carrie looked up the audition locations for the fourth season of American idol. With no professional singing experience, Carrie was certain she would not be chosen to go to Hollywood. Much to her surprise, however, judges Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, and Randy Jackson loved the country sound of the small town girl. In 2005, Carrie breezed through the competition to become the fourth American Idol.

The fairytale wasn't quite over yet. Since her American Idol victory, Underwood has become one of the biggest names in country music, making three platinum albums. Underwood has won multiple Billboard Awards, Country Music Awards, American Music Awards, and five Grammy Awards. She has crisscrossed North America several times, performing in front of sold-out crowds to millions of fans.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

By the time Carrie was in college, she had made the decision to choose a practical career path. Singing was a dream that Carrie relegated to childhood. At Northeastern State University, Carrie concentrated on a degree in journalism. Underwood worked part-time at a pizzeria and interned with Oklahoma State Representative Bobby Frame.

Underwood wasn't all work and no play. In fact, Carrie joined the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority, also known as TriSigma, at Northeastern State. TriSigma offered Carrie an avenue to meet friends and engage in philanthropic works nearby her school. Carrie also competed in a few local beauty pageants, and was named Miss NSU runner-up in 2004.

During her last year at Northeastern State University, Carrie auditioned for the fourth season of American Idol. Underwood says that though she has not taken the professional route she originally envisioned for herself, her degree still comes in handy. She says, "It helps me when answering questions, especially on camera, because that's what I'm used to. I know what the reporters are looking for and I also know when they're trying to make me say something bad. They'll ask me some hot button question, something to get myself in trouble!"...

    Blown Away

    Dry lightning cracks across the skies. Those storm clouds gather in her eyes. Her daddy was a mean old mister. Her momma was an angel in the ground. The weatherman called for a twister. She prayed blow it down. There's not enough rain in Oklahoma to wash the sins out of that house. There's not enough wind in Oklahoma to rip the nails out of the past. Chorus: (Shatter every window til it's all blown away. Every brick every board every slammin door blown away. Til there's nothing left standing. Nothing left of yesterday. Every tear soaked whiskey memory blown away. Blown away.) She heard those sirens screaming out. Her daddy lay there passed out on the couch. She locked herself in the cellar. Listened to the screaming of the wind. Some people call it taking shelter. She called it sweet revenge. Repeat chorus. There's not enough rain in Oklahoma to wash the sins out if that house. There's not enough wind in Oklahoma to rip the nails out of the past. Repeat chorus. Blown away. Blown away. Blown away. Blown away.

    Undo it

    I should've known by the way you passed me by, there was something in your eyes and it wasn't right. I should've walked but I never had the chance, everything got out of hand and I let it slide. Now I only have myself to blame, for falling for your stupid games. I wish my life could be the way it was, before I saw your face. (Chorus) 'You stole my happy, you made me cry. Took the lonely, and took me for a ride. And I wanna uh - uh - uh - uh - uh - undo it. You had my heart, now I want it back. I'm starting to see) everything you la-ack. Boy you blew, you put me through it. And I wanna uh - uh - uh - uh - uh undo it. Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na.' Now your photos don't have a picture frame. And I never say your name, and I never will. And all your things, well I threw them in the trash. And I'm not even sad. Now you only have yourself to blame, for playing all those stupid games. And you'll always be the same, no oh, you'll never change. (Repeat chorus) You want my future you can't have it. I'm still trying to erase you from mmy past. I need you gone, so fast. 'You stole my happy, you made me cry. Took the lonely and took me for a ride. And I wanna uh - uh - uh - uh - uh - undo it. You had my heart, now I want it back. I'm starting to see, everything you lack. Boy you blew it, you put me through it. And I wanna uh - uh - uh - uh - uh - undo it.' (Repeat words in apostrophes) (I tried to post the excact words, and if I did not, I apologize.)
