Underwood, Country Home receive Golden Globe nominations

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 – 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.

CD review - My Gift 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 ...
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 ...
