Transcript of Carrie Underwood
Who is she?

-mother of one boy
-born in Muskogee, Oklahoma

-When Carrie started out she didn't write any of her own music. Actually, she didn't co-write on any songs off her first album.
-She started out on American Idol in 2005, as mentioned before. Her debut song was "Inside Your Heaven" which was from her final American Idol performance.
How did she start?
What influences her music?
-Carrie is influenced by several things in her life, such as monumental events that she encounters. For example, when she and her husband were dating Carrie was writing with some friends, and when the melody was played she sang "Mama, you taught me to do the right things"
These lyrics later became a number one hit which was a song to her mother thanking her for teaching her what to look for in a man, and to explain to her mother that this man she was with was worthy of her love.
-A couple of her newer songs, including "Smoke Break" and "What I Never Knew I Always Wanted" were written about her own life and her recent experiences with a new baby in her life.
How does she influence her audience?
-Carrie Underwood influences her audience through her song choice. She may not write all her songs, but she picks some with heavy messages such as "Jesus Take the Wheel". This song depicts a young woman who is struggling with life and all it's obstacles and the woman leans on God with all her troubles, which can influence listeners to work towards their faith(if it lies within the Gospel).
-Underwood also has placed several other powerful songs on her records that sort of speak on several common issues within society such as cheating, alcoholism, wasted time, religion, and "mommy and daddy" battles.
