Carrie Underwood gets wax treatment at Madame Tussauds
Wednesday, October 22, 2008
– Times Square got a double dose of Carrie Underwood today as singer unveiled her wax figure at Madame Tussauds New York. Underwood posed side-by-side with her wax likeness, which she saw for the first time today.
The creation of Underwood's figure began earlier this year when a team of Madame Tussauds studio artists flew out to meet Underwood on tour for her figure sitting. Underwood spent more than an hour with the studio artists and donated a replica of the dress that she wore to the 2006 CMA Awards. The dress was designed by Trish Townsend and constructed by Dez Zamek.
"We are thrilled that Carrie was able to join us today to help unveil her figure. Not only is she a bona fide superstar with fans around the world, but she is also an incredibly kind and generous young woman - a true role model for young people today. We know that our guests will love her figure, and we can't wait for them to see it," said Janine DiGioacchino, general manager of Madame Tussauds New York and Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.
Underwood's wax likeness is part of the VIP Room and is posed in a standing position with hands on hips. "I am honored to have been asked to pose for a Madame Tussauds wax figure as this is truly a once in a lifetime experience. I am really excited to attend my unveiling today," said Underwood.

Underwood always sings well, no matter how her songs are arranged, but it's a true treat to hear that voice without much of the big production that usually accompanies it. ...
It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree.
The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy.

This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
