Who is Carrie Underwood?

Carrie Marie Underwood (born March 10, 1983) is an American singer and songwriter. She rose to prominence after winning the fourth season of American Idol in 2005.

Her single “Inside Your Heaven” made her the only country artist to debut atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the only solo country artist in the 2000s to have a number-one song on the Hot 100.

Her debut album, Some Hearts (2005), was bolstered by the successful crossover singles “Jesus, Take the Wheel” and “Before He Cheats”, becoming the best-selling solo female debut album in country music history. She won three Grammy Awards for the album, including Best New Artist.

The next studio album, Carnival Ride (2007), had one of the biggest opening weeks of all time by a female artist and won two Grammy Awards.

Fans Go Wild After Seeing Carrie Underwood Stun in Sequin Tank Top and Daisy Duke Shorts

Leave it up to the one and only Carrie Underwood to rock denim, rhinestones, and fringe all at the same time.

The “Ghost Story” singer headlined this year’s Stagecoach music festival in California along with artists like Thomas Rhett and Luke Combs. It’s like the Coachella of country music so naturally, Carrie pulled out all the stops to give fans a show they wouldn’t forget and she delivered.

Like her upcoming album and latest single titled Denim & Rhinestones, the American Idol alum truly embodied her own lyrics in an outfit that did not disappoint. She wowed in a bedazzled denim jacket, and later got rid of it to show off a purple, sequin tank and daisy duke style shorts that matched.

And, that’s not all folks. There’s a reason why she’s a headliner. She had several outfit changes, a choir, and, of course, she brought all the drama she’s packed into her current Las Vegas residency, REFLECTIONS, to Cali.

Carrie shared this recap from the night with the caption, “I am still on a high from @stagecoach. So many fun moments!!”

Among her many outfits, Carrie also donned a jacket that cleverly said “Carriecoach”, a bedazzled Guns N’ Roses graphic tee, and yet another pair of denim shorts that had those famously toned legs on full display.

After seeing the slew of fire emojis in Carrie’s comment section, it looks like it’s a resounding “YASSS” for the country singer’s performance. Once fans picked their jaws up from the floor, they ran to the comment section to leave messages like:
