GRAMMY Rewind: Carrie Underwood Wins Best New Artist At The 2007 GRAMMYs
For the latest edition of GRAMMY Rewind, we look back at country queen Carrie Underwood's Best New Artist win at the 49th GRAMMY Awards in 2007. Watch her full acceptance speech for the big win below.
"This is absolutely unbelievable. I love country music, first of all!" she said with a big smile.
In 2005, Underwood won the fourth season of "American Idol," making her a household name. Later that year, she would go on to release her first two (hit) singles and her debut album, Some Hearts, on Arista Nashville. The LP was also a hit, earning the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart.
Following that whirlwind breakthrough year, Underwood was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Female Country Vocal Performance, for her second-ever single, "Jesus, Take The Wheel." She won both categories and has been an unstoppable musical force in country ever since.
The "Cry Pretty" singer has gone on to earn seven total GRAMMYs to date. She won her third GRAMMY just the following year, earning Best Female Country Vocal Performance again, for her massive single "Before He Cheats."
