Carrie Underwood, Bangs

Carrie Underwood, a native of Checotah, Oklahoma, rose to fame when she was named the winner of American Idol Season 4.

Then Carrie Underwood became a country star.

One of the biggest. Her debut album, Some Hearts, is one of the best-selling albums ever by a new artist. Easily shaking off the American Idol novelty factor, Some Hearts gave Carrie five #1 country hits, including "Before He Cheats."

With her second album, Carnival Ride, Carrie Underwood cemented her status as one of country's - and music's - biggest stars (not to mention prettiest faces).

She is married to hockey star Mike Fisher.
