It has been a whirlwind year for FOX American Idol alum, Carrie Underwood. After winning Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, Country Music Association awards, and sweeping all six categories in which she was nominated in the first ever American Country Awards, now Underwood is celebrating another nomination–for a Golden Globe! Read on for all the details on Carrie Underwood’s Golden Globe nomination.

There’s no denying that Carrie Underwood is the most successful artist to ever come out of American Idol–so far. She’s topped the charts, won numerous awards (including 6 at the first American Country Awards), sold out tours, and now, she can add a Golden Globe nomination to her long list of accomplishments.

Underwood has been nominated for her work on “There’s A Place For Us,” the theme song from Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of Dawn Treader. Carrie co-wrote the music and lyrics for the song along with David Hogues.

Hogues has also worked with Idols Kelly Clarkson, David Archuleta, and Daughtry, in addition to working with Carrie on many other projects.

So, what did Carrie Underwood have to say about her nomination?

“I am absolutely thrilled by this wonderful honor today,” said Carrie. “It was such an exciting endeavor to have been asked to create music for the film. I grew up with the books and have been a fan of the earlier two movies. I can’t wait for the Golden Globes!”

Neither can we!

With all of her accomplishments and accolades, Carrie Underwood still hasn’t forgotten where it all began. Check out this video of Carrie’s recent trip to her hometown in Oklahoma with the American Idol crew. Click here.

And don’t forget to catch Carrie Underwood at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards when they air Sunday, January 16th.

Good luck Carrie!

    Congrats to Carrie and all, but please. She is not the most successful artist to come out of American Idol. Kelly Clarkson is an international superstar and has sold more albums and singles worldwide. She has also managed to make it big in the pop world which is much more competitive than the country music world. That’s why when artist’s careers start to fade in the pop world, they go country (i.e. Jessica Simpson, Darius Rucker).

    I completely agree with you Dan! Congrats to Carrie but as a country music fan I am sick of her honestly – she is so overrated in my opinion. You are right, Kelly, Daughtry, and all the other pop/rock idols have a much more competitive industry to contend with, so kudos to them for their success!

    Lisa Princ, overrated?!?! She’s just more popular, more loved, more wanted. If you suck, you won’t hear much of them. Carrie rock’s! Period. Everybody wan’t Carrie.

    And that is your opinion, just as I stated mine. I am not a fan and not everyone is :)
