A pretty impressive honor for Carrie Underwood – she’s been named to Time Magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People. Since winning the 4th season of American Idol in 2005 she’s come a long way.  She’s won 6 Grammys, 16 Billboard Music Awards, 11 Academy of Country Music Awards, 7 American Music Awards, 5 Country Music Association Awards.  She was named to the Grand Ole Opry in 2008.  And who could forget her performance in the Sound of Music?

Brad Paisley was asked to comment on her inclusion on the list and had high praise.  He wrote:  “…not only has she earned her place, she’s also raised the bar for the industry.  She’s a prolific songwriter, a trendsetter and an Opry member.  But it’s decency as a person that is so impressive.  She’s an advocate for causes like animal rights and the Red Cross.  She has publicly challenged lawmakers when she’s disagreed with them and covered controversial issues in her music.”

Brad continues “she can sing the fire out of a song and tell a joke.  I’m always amazed at her comedic timing and instincts when we co-host the CMA Awards.  She has faith, a sense of self and loves a good challenge. When most people tackle a Broadway musical, it’s in front of a thousand people.  She did it in front of 20 million.”

Paisley saved his his highest praise for the end.  “So many young girls want to be just like her.  In that sense, I see hope for the world.  If I had a daughter, nothing would make me happier than to hear her say she wanted to grow up to be like Carrie Underwood.”
