Carrie Underwood

When I was growing up I struggled to enjoy art in the same way my peers did, this was especially noticeable when it came to music. I was a child with a lot of sensory issues and music would usually send me into a panicked meltdown, but the first artist that I can remember wanting to listen to and sing along with was Carrie Underwood. Carrie Underwood was the winner of American Idol in 2005 and has gone on to have 26 #1 singles. Carrie Underwood is considered a country music artist, but has also become the designer of a clothing line, and has even made a few appearances as an actress with roles in How I Met Your Mother and Soul Surfer. Some of her hit songs include "Before He Cheats", "Jesus, Take The Wheel", and "Cry Pretty". Although my music taste has changed over the years, I still enjoy Carrie Underwood because of her powerful music and she is a strong role model with the messages she sends through her songs and actions.
This is a link to her website where you can keep up on recent news about her, songs, videos, and more. This link will also bring you to a bio section that will list some of Carrie Underwoods accomplishments and talks about other projects she has been involved in.
This is a list of charities and foundations Carrie Underwood has worked with over the years, this link also talks about other ways she has given back to the community and those in need. With such a big platform and following it is nice to see people use their fame to make others aware of world issues.
This last link has her top 10 songs, as well as links to the corresponding videos and a section about the meaning behind each song. I thought this website was a good example of her evolution as a musician and it showed how meaningful her music is.
