Since she first auditioned on the fourth season of American Idol back in 2005, it quickly became clear Carrie Underwood was a force to be reckoned with. Idol creator, Simon Cowell, called it early on that Underwood would go on to not only win that season but also that her name would go down in music history.
“I can remember one specific time when Carrie Underwood walked into an audition room," Cowell said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. "It was as if the entire cast that year was in black and white, and she walked in in color...It was so obvious and from that second … A. I knew we’d found a star. B. She was gonna win, and C. I had this feeling that she was going to sell more records than anybody else."
And he was right. Underwood's 2005 debut album, Some Hearts, sold over eight million copies, becoming not only her highest selling album but also the highest album certification of any country music artist to emerge since 2000.
Her sophomore album Carnival Ride went on to be certified 4 times platinum, Play On has been certified 3 times platinum, Blown Away came in at 2 times platinum, and her most recent Storyteller album is certified platinum.
Underwood inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2008 and has won numerous awards including seven Grammys, 17 Billboard Music Awards, 12 CMAs, nine AMAs, as well as a Guinness World Record. She is also the only solo country artist to ever have a No.1 single on the Billboard Hot 100.
