Overview

Carrie Underwood grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. Gifted with a beautiful and full-throated singing voice, Carrie sang in her church choir, always won the lead in her high school's musicals, and performed in amateur theater. Still, she never gave a thought to turning professional until she learned that producers for American Idol planned to audition competitors.

Carrie breezed through the auditions, then made it to Hollywood to compete alongside 23 other talented singers. Week after week, she was consistently supported by millions of fans voting at home as well as the show's tough panel of judges.

Finally, in May 2005, she prevailed, winning the title at the conclusion of the show's fourth season. Since then, she has gone on to record two enormously successful country albums while collecting numerous prestigious awards as one of America's top recording stars.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Hurst
Carrie Underwood was just a small-town girl from Checotah, Oklahoma before she made it "big." Since winning Season 4 of the "American Idol" television show, the country star's life has taken off. Carrie has won countless music industry awards, including the Academy of Country Music Awards Entertainer of the Year in 2009 as well as four Grammys, and has produced three multi-platinum albums. Fans and industry experts alike love this blonde bombshell for her girl-next door attitude and her astounding vocal talent. This book chronicles Carrie's journey from Checotah to Hollywood, providing details about her career, family, and personal life. The glossary, index, further resources, and timelines offer quality information for reports or essays. However, the book is poorly structured in a non-sequential order, leaving the reader to have to flip around for a chronological account of Carrie's success. Also, this title in the series, "American Idol Superstars," lacks attractive aesthetics, which is reflected in the dated graphics and colors. But any fan of Carrie Underwood will be excited to learn more about this country "Idol!" Reviewer: Jillian Hurst
