Biography


Set to exhibit her remarkable voice at the 2005 Pete Newell Challenge held on December 21 in Oakland, Carrie Marie Underwood has really soared to be a bright rising star in the music scene following her success to garner 3 Billboard Music Awards that also included the title of Country Single Sales Artist of the Year. In the anticipation for the airing of her documented musical journey through CMT's specials, "In the Moment: Carrie Underwood" on December 16, this charming singer has solemnly prepared herself to deliver another stunning performance while also to bring joy along with Ciara, Rascal Flatts, and The Click Five on TNT's annual presentation of "Christmas in Washington" by December 14.

Raised in a family cattle farm in Checotah, Oklahoma from the day she was born on March 10, 1983, Carrie has shown her deep interest in music at such a young age, even had already sung with the local church by the time she was 3. Since then, music has become an inseparable part in her life for she continued to perform songs at every occasion, be it county fair, school event and musical production, talent competition, or car show. However, the thought of pursuing a singing career apparently had not yet been the main priority in her life as she instead chose to put concentration on her study, entering Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma after her graduation from Checotah High School.
