CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- After skyrocketing to fame as the winner of the 4th season of the Fox television series "American Idol," Carrie Underwood has become a multi-platinum selling country music recording artist. It didn't take long for Carrie Underwood to make an impact on the music charts.
Her debut album "Some Hearts" was released in November 2005. The album sold over 300,000 copies in its first week, placing it #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and marking the biggest debut of any country artist since tracking began in 1991.
The list of prestigious Awards won by Carrie Underwood includes 5 American Music Awards, 4 Grammys and 6 Academy of Country Music Awards.
In addition to those, she has also received award recognition from Billboard, the Gospel Music Association, CMT, People's Choice, Teen Choice and more.
Tonight at 8 p.m., NBC presents "The Sound of Music."
Carrie Underwood will take over the Julie Andrews role, while Stephen Moyer of HBO’s “True Blood” is ready to prove he can deliver a pretty mean “Edelweiss” when he’s not in vampire mode.
Underwood and Moyer were our special guests on Larry's Look this morning.
