I’ve come to appreciate Carrie Underwood more and more over the past several months. Much of that has to do with my new affection for country music, although I still haven’t really warmed up to her songs.
Mostly I’m impressed with her personality and her vocal chops. She’s a fine performer who has risen from the ultimate amateur status to become true country music royalty. I’ve watched her take home awards by the armload, breaking records left and right, and always with the same sweet “all this for little old me?” attitude.
