Country Music Flashback: Carrie Underwood Wins American Idol
Thirteen years ago today, Carrie Underwood's life changed forever. Carrie Underwood became the fourth-season winner of American Idol.
Attending the same university as Underwood, I remember that evening vividly. The entire campus was rooting for their Oklahoma girl to win. We had witnessed Underwood's talents long before America was introduced to her. We knew the powerhouse vocalist was destined to be a star and as soon as America met Carrie Underwood they knew she had the "it" factor.
Here is a clip from that moment when Carrie was announced the newest American Idol.
