TCJ Seal of Approval: Carrie Underwood!

I have been trying to think of a way to say something about Carrie Underwood on this blog for some time now.  It finally came to me about 3 minutes ago that Ms. Underwood is definitely deserving of the prestigious Conservative Journal Seal of Apporval!

Ever since Carrie Underwood won the 4th season of American Idol, she has accomplished great things in the music industry, as well as in the world.  Her first album, Some Hearts, was certified 7x platinum (That’s shipping over 7 million CDs for those that aren’t hip on the lingo), and produced 4 number 1 singles in a row.  Her smash hit, “Before He Cheats”, became the first country song to sell over 2 million digital downloads.  Her second album, Carnival Ride, has sold nearly 3 million copies and produced 5 number 1 singles, making her one of the only artists in history to have 10 consecutive #1’s.  Also worth noting is her recent win as Entertainer of the Year, joining the ranks of only a handful of females to ever win that top honor.

But the reason she wins this award isn’t for her Grammys, her ACMs, her CMAs, or anything else.  It’s because she’s remained a moral, Christ-like person through the rigors of extreme fame.  Since winning American Idol 4 years ago, I have yet to hear one time about Carrie Underwood getting drunk and wild at the club.  Carrie hasn’t been caught in a sex-tape scandal.  She hasn’t posed nude for any kind of magazine.  She’s remained grounded despite her enormous successes.  Taking a quick glance at the celebrity scene, it’s hard to pick out more than 1 or 2 that rival Carrie in handling their rise to fame well.  It’s truly a testament to Carrie’s faith that she has managed not to stray from the path she was on pre-Idol.  But of course, we can’t leave out her parents, who equally deserve this award for instilling in their daughter such great Christian values.  Maybe they should receive the next Seal of Approval?

    I love Carrie! She is such a sweetheart! She does a lot for charity and is a good Christian, clean cut young lady. She graduated from college magna cum laude with a journalism major, so she is a good role model for young girls too… She helps animals, and does alot of charity work for cancer, St. Jude’s, and Idol Gives Back charities in Africa.

    Last week, she went to Africa again to help pass out nets to orphans and poor people to help prevent Malaria. She also flew to Iraq a few years ago over Christmas as part of the USO tour to sing for the troops serving there. That was amazing, as my cousin is in the Air Force and he got to see her perform. He said she was very sweet, down to earth, and not a diva like many celebs.

    She and her boyfriend, Mike Fisher of the Ottawa Senators, are always visiting hospitals to see sick children… Her boyfriend Mike Fisher is also a strong Christian and blogs about his beliefs all the time. They attend church together in Canada alot with his parents.

    She stays out of trouble, avoids drugs or smoking or the club scene, and you never hear a scandel about her unlike the other young celebs.

    Carrie will be playing softball for charity again this year in Nashville for the City of Hope charity benefit. She attended Elton John’s Oscar party this year and donated to his AIDS foundation.

    There is much more to say, but you get the idea. She is a wonderful person, and I love that you blogged about her!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the post and share my great appreciation for Carrie Underwood!

    By far the best article ever written on Ms Underwood. You told it exactly like it is. I am so proud that Carrie has remained grounded and true to her Christian roots. The characteristics that she carries with her each and everyday are very few and far between. Her traits & values should be bottled up and sold at very hefty prices to the misfits that polute or tv screens and stages. Many lessons could be learned by just sitting back and watching how she conducts herself. God will continue to reward her

    • Thanks Dave, I appreciate the wonderful comment and I’m glad you liked the article. I’m also glad you share my (and many others) appreciation for Carrie’s Christian lifestyle that she has continued to live even through fame.

      I look forward to hearing more and more from Ms. Underwood and wish her continued success.

      Thanks again for the great compliments, and I hope to see you again!

    Thank you for this article! I hate when people read Carrie’s quietness the wrong way and thing she is snobby or stuck-up, because she is such a great person! She does so much charity work on top of doing so much for her fans… I met her a few months ago and it was one of the best experiences of my life because she was so hilarious and kind, and I saw her being exceptionally warm and friendly to a little boy who was going to have serious surgery the next day, unbeknown to her.

    • Your quite welcome; I’m glad you enjoyed it! I agree, it’s quite frustrating when I hear people say things like that. Wow, what a privelidge to meet her! I attended a concert after Idol and it was great fun, but unfortunately I didn’t get to meet her.

      Thanks for comment and I hope to see you again.
