Carrie Underwood Is Joining State Literacy Campaign



Carrie Underwood is the latest celebrity to appear on a poster for the Oklahoma Library Association's "Read Y'all" literacy campaign.

"American Idol" winner and country music singing star Carrie Underwood is joining the Oklahoma Library Association's "Read Y'all" literacy campaign.

"I think Carrie Underwood just represents Oklahoma in such a positive manner," said Buffy Edwards, poster coordinator for the campaign. "She's grounded in her upbringing. She's proud of her state. She appeals to a very wide age range. I think America fell in love with Carrie Underwood on 'American Idol,' and we're very lucky she's from our state."

Concerning the project, Underwood will have posters featuring her distributed free to every academic, public, school and special library in the state.

Some other notable Oklahomans to appear on the posters include country star Toby Keith, actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth, actor James Garner, author Dana Dunbar and New Orleans Hornets star Desmond Mason.
