American Idol 4 winner Carrie Underwood continued her domination of
music award shows with the Grammy Awards. To her collection of two ACM
awards, two CMA Awards, one American Music Award, and five Billboard
Music Awards, Carrie Underwood can now add two Grammy Awards.
At the 49th Grammy Awards, Carrie Underwood won Grammy Awards for “Best Female Vocal Performance” and for “Best New Artist.” Her hit song “Jesus Take The Wheel” also won for “Best Country Song,” but that Grammy Award went to the songwriters Brett James, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson.
After winning the “Best New Artist” award, Carrie Underwood paid homage to American Idol, “This is absolutely unbelievable. Uh, there’s so much,I love country music first of all. There’s so many people to thank. I’m going to start at the top, thank you God, thank you mom and dad, thank you Simon Fuller who created the show American Idol that got me here. I owe everything to Simon Fuller and 19.”
