So hard to believe it's been 10 years! I'm forever grateful to American Idol for changing my life! #blessed -Carrie Underwood
It's been 10 years since Carrie Underwood was crowned the queen of American Idol. Carrie has won seven Grammy awards and has the most No. 1 hits, amongst any of her fellow country superstars, on the Billboard Hot Country Songs-US Weekly. Have you caught on to my girl crush yet? I know I am at least partly responsible for making some of those singles Number 1.
I watched her from day one of auditions, texting away to vote, all the way to the end. I made my mom blast the song on the radio, much to her dismay, when I came home for my college break. But it was Carrie Underwood's music that has really taken me through the past 10 years. All my accomplishments & hardships the past decade all have a Carrie Underwood song attached to them.
Jesus, Take the Wheel
This song was her first successful single and will always remind me of my best friend in her freshmen dorm room as we played it over and over again. Thinking we were hitting the high notes just like Carrie was.
There was nothing better to jam out to in a car that actually had a CD player.Windows down, pretending I was hitting all the high notes. Getting my fair share of looks from other cars I'm sure. Funny enough, that CD never made it out of that CD player. Must be because I played this song too much.
Two Black Cadillacs
Ultimate women's revenge.
Ever, Ever After
Fact. We walked out to the instrumental version of this song after we were pronounced husband and wife. Perfect mix of Disney and Carrie.
See You Again
I will see you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
'Till I see you again
I don't even know my last nameMy momma would be so ashamedIt started off "hey cutie, where you from?"And then it turned into "oh no! what have I done?"And I don't even know my last name
How fun is this song? A night in Vegas, wake up married. It was also really fun when she performed it and showed her huge engagement ring.
Just a Dream
'Cause sometimes that mountain you've been climbingIs just a grain of sandAnd what you've been out there searching for foreverIs in your handsAnd when you figure out love is all that matters after allIt sure makes everything else seem so small
Throughout my life I have always believed that everything happens for a reason and you can't sweat the small stuff. That's exactly what this song is all about. When I was in college, there were some tough times but thinking about these lyrics helped me.
Something in the Water
10 years later and Carrie Underwood can still bring all the feelings with her songs. So much meaning and such a connection with the words.
End of girl crush, fan girl moment. And still do not have Carrie Underwood's legs.
