After taking the fourth season title on Fox’s American Idol in 2005, Oklahoma native Carrie Underwood shot to fame as only a select few of the Idol champs had before her. Releasing her debut album following her win in 2005, Underwood scored instant chart-topping success with catchy singles like “Some Hearts” and “Jesus Take the Wheel.” In November 2007, Underwood took home the American Music Award for Favorite Female Country Artist and Favorite Country Album. This then-rising star also earned a 2008 Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her popular girl power anthem “Before He Cheats.”
Once linked to quarterback Tony Romo and Gossip Girl‘s Chace Crawford, the country siren has settled down with Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher, who popped the question with a 12-carat diamond just before the Christmas holiday in December 2009. The pair said “I do” in a luxe country ceremony in Georgia in July 2010.
Together, the couple have two children. Isaiah Michael Fisher was born in February 2015, followed by Jacob Bryan Fisher in January 2019. While trying for her second son, the singer suffered three miscarriages in two years.
