Carrie Underwood 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.'
