Underwoods’ debut album, Some Hearts was released in 20005 and was much loved by the fans. The 39-year-old country music superstar has an upcoming album titled Denim & Rhinestones which as per the artist is a perfect reflection of where she is today in her life, “I walked in [the studio] to write and the first question out of my co-producer, David’s, the mouth was, ‘What do you want to do?’ What are we doing,’” she said.

“I said, I just wanna have fun. I wanna think about playing live shows. Going on tour and being in front of people and everybody just getting together and having a good time. I wanna have all of that in mind. I just wanna have fun,” Carrie shared.

Why Choose underwood as the Mentor

Underwood indeed is a remarkable choice as a mentor for the upcoming finalists, as this phase is the toughest and the most challenging of all. We are aware that Underwood not only won the crown for Season 4 but she also scored more than 20 No.1 hit singles and has an acclaimed career as an artist with countless awards and accolades.

But only time will tell us who will take up the crown of the next American Idol this season. All we can do is witness how this mentorship will carve out the future for these finalists.
