Early Life

Carrie Underwood was born March 10, 1983, in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She was raised on her parents' farm in the rural town of Checotah. Her father worked in a paper mill while her mother taught elementary school. She was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder at age five and was prescribed Ritalin and Dexedrine, medicines she still takes as an adult. During childhood, Carrie began performing at church and in local talent shows. A local fan encouraged Carrie's family to take her to Nashville at age 14 to audition for a record contract. Capital Records was interested but ultimately declined. After graduating from high school Carrie initially walked away from her dreams of being a singer. She attended Northeastern State University.She spent part of one of her summers in college as a page for Oklahoma State Representative Bobby Frame. Underwood is an alumna of  Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority. She competed in numerous beauty pageants at the university and was selected as Miss NSU runner-up in 2004. Underwood graduated from college in 2006 magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in mass communication and an emphasis in journalism.

American Idol

In the summer of 2004 Carrie auditioned for and was selected for "American Idol" season 4. During her time on the show, Simon predicted that Carrie would both win the competition and eventually outsell all other Idol contestants. Both of those predictions would come true. Carrie won Idol on May 24, 2005.


Underwood's debut studio album "Some Hearts" was released in 2005. The album reached #1 on the U.S. Country chart and #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified 8x platinum in the US. Underwood released the album Carnival Ride in 2007 which reached #1 in the US and Canada. Her album "Play On" was released in 2009 and reached #1 in the U.S. and #2 in Canada.

Her album "Cry Pretty" was released in 2018 and reached #1 on the US Billboard chart and country chart. She followed that up with "My Gift" (2020) and "My Savior" (2021) before releasing "Denim & Rhinestones" in 2022, marking a return to her country-pop sound. Underwood released a surprise single, "Out of That Truck," in March 2023.

Real Estate

Carrie Underwood's first big purchase after winning "American Idol" in 2005 was a 3,099-square-foot property in Franklin, Tennessee. She paid $384,000 for the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home and sold it for $372,500 in 2007.

In 2010, Underwood and Fisher bought a mansion on eleven acres near Ottawa, Canada, in the luxurious Spruce Ridge district. The couple later put the mansion up for sale at an asking price of $2.2 million.

The couple sold their 7,000-square-foot Brentwood, Tennessee, home for $1.41 million in March 2020. Brentwood is a suburb southwest of Nashville, and Underwood had owned the home since 2007.  The home has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, a wet bar, a fitness center, and tennis court. The home has a four-car garage, walk-out basement with heated marble floors, and extra appliances, like a sub-zero fridge and wine fridge.

Carrie and her family live in their new "forever home," which Carrie and her husband designed together (presumably with the help of a professional architect). The house is in Franklin, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville. It is on over 300 acres of property, plenty of space for their sons, horses, and dogs to enjoy.
