Underwood gets influential

Thursday, April 24, 2014 – What does Carrie Underwood have in common with John Kerry, Pope Francis and Vladimir Putin. All were named to Time Magazine's annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

The full list and related tributes appear in the May 5 issue of Time, available on newsstands and tablets on April 25, and now at www.time.com/time100.

Underwood will also headline a performance as part of the Time 100 Gala to be held on April 29 at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. The black-tie dinner will include present and past recipients of most influential list. Previous guests have included President Bill Clinton, Justin Timberlake, Oprah Winfrey, Amy Poehler, Gabrielle Giffords and Steven Spielberg.

The TIME 100 features pairings of the influentials and the guest contributors TIME selects to write about them. Underwood's longtime friend Brad Paisley serves as the guest writer for her profile in this year's issue. "Not only has she earned her place (in country music), she's raised the bar: a prolific songwriter, a trend-setter and an Opry member. But it's her decency as a person that is so impressive."

The list, now in its 11th year, recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world's most influential individuals. "The TIME 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it's not a list of the smartest people in the world, it's a list of the most influential people in the world.," the magazine said. "They're scientists, they're thinkers, they're philosophers, they're leaders, they're icons, they're artists, they're visionaries. People who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people."

CD review - My Savior Carrie Underwood's gospel music album may not be traditional in the sense that she sings these songs the same way she heard them as a child growing up. However, on the traditional/modern country music spectrum, this album leans closer to traditional country music than just about anything Underwood's recorded. 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. ...
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 ...
