Carrie Underwood’s Hits Get Sweeter With Time
Carrie Underwood admits that when her debut single, 'Jesus, Take The Wheel,' hit the top of the charts in 2005, it didn't really phase her as much as a No. 1 song does today.
"I don't think at the time everything was beginning to happen, I realized what things meant," she tells GAC. "I'd never been in the music industry before, and all of a sudden I had a No. 1. I was like, 'Alright ... I guess they all go to No. 1!'"
Five years and 11 chart-toppers later, Carrie has really grasped the concept of what it means to have a No. 1 song, and more importantly, how much goes in to reaching that spot.
"The more I do it, the more I realize how many people it takes, how much work it takes," she says. "[It takes] all the fans calling in and requesting [the song], and it just takes so many people to make a No. 1. I am certainly more appreciative now than I was in the beginning."
Carrie's latest single, which we're guessing will be her 12th No. 1, is 'Temporary Home.'
