Ever since Carrie Underwood was the 2005 winner of American Idol, she has continued to make a name for herself. In just under 10 years time she has already permanently etched her name into Country Music history as one of the best female artists the genre has seen. To solidify her popularity, Carrie was recently named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.

Each person who was chosen by TIME as an influential person had someone else write an article about him or her. In Carrie’s case it was fellow country artist and CMA Awards Show co-host Brad Paisley. In his article for the TIME Magazine website he had these beautiful words to say about her:

Fast-forward to 2014. Not only has she earned her place, she’s also raised the bar: she’s a prolific songwriter, a trendsetter and an Opry member. But it’s her decency as a person that is so impressive. She’s an advocate for causes like animal rights and the Red Cross. She has publicly challenged lawmakers when she’s disagreed with them, and covered controversial issues in her music. She can sing the fire out of a song and tell a joke. I’m always amazed at her comedic timing and instincts when we co-host the CMA Awards. She has faith, a sense of self and loves a good challenge. When most singers tackle a Broadway musical, it’s in front of a thousand people. She did it in front of 20 million.

I will not expand much more on what Brad said because he pretty much had it covered. Carrie’s journey from a small town in Oklahoma to Country Music stardom is influential in and within itself. Carrie has most certainly given young girls all over the world that hopes and dreams can come true.
