Carrie Underwood, 34-year-old country singer, truly is America’s sweetheart. Wife, mother, singer, and performer, Underwood has had a successful and fulfilling life and career.
The artist has won multiple Grammy awards and Academy of Country Music awards throughout her career, after winning season four of American Idol. What do we love most about her, though?
Underwood’s faith story started when she grew up singing in her church choir at the First Free Will Baptist Church in Oklahoma. She has continued to rely on her relationship with God throughout her entire career and has not let fame get in the way of that.
Carrie Underwood is truly timeless. This video that went viral nearly 6 years ago is still one of the most viewed hymns on Youtube and never fails to impress. In fact, there are several tweets a day posted about this very video.
She continuously reflects on her faith in her music. Some examples include “Jesus Take the Wheel” and “Something in the Water”, which is a song about her baptism.
In an interview last year, Underwood said that being a mother is more important than her singing career. On the topic of faith, she said that it helps her stay positive through the ups and downs of life. She said, “It’s the backbone of all that I do. I’m lucky that singing in country music it’s not frowned upon and it’s not strange.”
We are inspired by you, Carrie! Maybe you could come out with an album of hymns next?
