Swift, Underwood, Urban win at People's Choice

Wednesday, January 6, 2010 – Taylor Swift received the Favorite Female Artist at the People's Choice awards Wednesday. Carrie Underwood was voted the favorite country performer. And Keith Urban took favorite male artist.

Swift won over Underwood, Beyonce, Britney Spears and P!nk. "What a beautiful beautiful way to start out a new decade," said Swift. "I want to thank the fans. You're the ones who choose what songs on the radio you want to blast on the car speakers and what concerns you're going to (attend)."

Underwood took the honor, voted on by fans only, over Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts and Swift.

"Obviously, a great 2009 for me, and that was because of the fans," said Underwood. "Thank you so much for voting. It's going to be an even better 2010."

Underwood launches a tour this year. She also got engaged several weeks ago to Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher.

Urban won his honor over Eminem, Jason Mraz, John Mayer and Tim McGraw. With wife Nicole Kidman looking on, Urban said, "Thank you. Thank you everybody."

Lady Gaga was the Favorite Pop Artist over The Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry, Spears and Swift.

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 ...
CD review - Cry Pretty 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. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies. 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 ...
