When the winner of the 2005 American Idol is not working, she is behaving like any other newlywed, doing the laundry, running errands, buying presents for people with birthdays coming up.
She walked down the aisle on July 6th 2010 with her Ottawa Senators hockey star boyfriend Mike Fisher at a $500,000 ceremony on the Ritz Carlton Reynolds Plantation in Greensborough, Georgia, 75 miles east of Atlanta.
Underwood wore a Chantilly lace Monique Lhuillier gown and they exchanged their vows under a lakeside tent. The couple met a year ago and he proposed to her in December 2009 giving her a 12 carat ring worth $800,000.
They have not been together much since they wed sparking rumours that their marriage is in trouble. There have been reports of screaming matches between the couple because she went back on a promise to move to Ottowa, where he is based for his hockey commitments.
But Underwood denies this saying they shuttle between their homes in Ottowa and Nashville and she gives thanks for her marriage, along with thanks for her dog Ace and her family.
"Nothing much has changed since our marriage" she said. "Because marriage is like dating. Sometime our schedules click, sometimes they don't, but that is good for both of us because we are both independent people".
She insists they have plenty of quality time together as Fisher's hockey games, "I love going to the games, cheering on my man" she said.
The American country singer dominated the voting in the televised talent show, winning week after week, and judge Simon Cowell said right from her first audition she was one of the favourites to win.
As soon as she appeared on the live shows she generated a large fan base who became known as "Carrie's Care Bears" and she became the 4th series winner on May 25th 2005.
Her debut album "Some Hearts" was certified 7 times Platinum and was the fastest selling country album in Nielsen Soundscan History.
She has won multiple Grammy Awards, a Grand Ole Induction and the first vocalist to win the Academy of Country Music Award back-to-back in 2009 and 2010. She is the current ACM Entertainer of the Year.
Born in Muskogee, Oklahoma and brought up on her parents' rural farm in Checotah, as a child she performed at the Robbins Memorial Talent Show. Like many Country Music singers she cut her teeth in the music industry by singing at the Free Will Baptist Church.
After school she attended Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication and Journalism. For two summers she performed in the University's Downtown Country Show in Tahlequah and also competed in numerous beauty pageants. She was runner-up to Miss Northeastern State University in 2004.
