– Carrie Underwood along with a song from "Country Strong" received Golden Globe nominations today in the "Best Original Song - Motion Picture" category.
Underwood received her nomination for her co-written song There's A Place For Us from the film "Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." This is Underwood's first-ever Golden Globe recognition.
Coming Home, a song from "Country Strong" was also nominated. The song was written by Bob DiPiero, Tom Douglas and Hillary Lindsey for the movie with Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw.
Other songs nominated were: Bound to You and You Haven't Seen the Last of Me from "Burlesque" and I See the Light from "Tangled."
"I am absolutely thrilled by this wonderful honor today," said Underwood. "It was such an exciting endeavor to have been asked to create music for the film. I grew up with the books and have been a fan of the earlier two movies. I can't wait for the Golden Globes."
Underwood was asked to write and record a song for the movie earlier this year. Underwood, along with frequent co-writers and now fellow Golden Globe nominees, Hillary Lindsey and David Hodges, wrote the song, which became the end title song in the film.
"Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," directed by Michael Apted, was released in U.S. theaters this past weekend and debuted at number one at the box office.
"Country Strong" has yet to open.
