The tragedy that befell Carrie Underwood is heartbreaking.

Carrie Underwood is the most successful “American Idol” winner. Her career in country music extends far beyond that sentence. Underwood has five CMT Artist of the Year awards and seven Grammys.

She sold over 60 million records and was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018. She is happily married to former NHL player Mike Fisher, and they have two sons, Isaiah and Jacob. Even the biggest stars falter, and Underwood understands the consequences.
