Season 4 American Idol winner Carrie Underwood wasted no time in giving her newfound fans and followers the music they craved, releasing her first album in the same year as her Idol win in 2005. The album, Some Hearts, became the shelter of Underwood's hit songs "Don't Forget To Remember Me", "Wasted", and the vengeful icon "Before He Cheats". However, Underwood also recorded yet another hit on the same album that sent fans into a state of religious awareness and, essentially, hope.
The song titled "Jesus Take The Wheel" musically coveys a story of a young mom who, upon driving with her new baby, encounters a near death experience. Amidst the moment, the mother gives her life to Jesus and begs that He take the wheel and carry them to safety. The nearly crashing car stood as a metaphor for the young mother's life, as we later discover that she is asking for guidance through her dark times and ultimately turning to Christ.
The song became a monster hit, spending six consecutive weeks at the top of the Billboards and winning Underwood a handful of notable awards, including Single of the Year at the 2005 Academy of Country Music Awards.
