EDITORS’ NOTES

Carrie Underwood’sr 2005 debut album, Some Hearts, has gone seven times platinum in the U.S. alone. And with her smash hit “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” it’s easy to understand Underwood’s overnight success. Built on a moving power ballad, the song is elegantly trimmed with warm, rootsy instruments and powerful string arrangements. Over this, Underwood sings a gripping narrative on faith and mortality. The album’s title track is a catchy standout that infuses a Nashville-flavored anthemic hit with innovative production that has more in common with over-the-top arena rock. She pulls harder on those heartstrings with “Don’t Forget To Remember Me,” but it’s in songs like the sassy “Before He Cheats” where Underwood reveals her true grit, singing about the other woman with a tough fervor on par with Miranda Lambert.

Amazing Album!

This may be, if not the best album from an "American Idol" the best album ever created. From start to finish, this album shows amazing lyricism, from an incredible voice, and the greatest American Idol ever, Carrie Underwood. Many thought she would disappear quickly, but yet that is not the case at all. This album did not earn its 6x platinum for nothing. This shows sincerity, along with anger, and true happiness. It is truly the best album ever made, and Carrie Underwood just may be the best female artist out there right now. I also suggest you check out her other album, which is just as amazing as this great album.

Here are some tracks you should buy

-Wasted (5/5)
-Before He Cheats (PURE 5/5)
-Don't Forget to Remember Me (the second best 5/5)
-Jesus, Take the Wheel (5/5)
- The Night Before (Life Goes On)

Those are just a few tracks. You should really buy this ENTIRE album. You won't regret it!

Underwood takes the wheel on her debut

Carrie Underwood’s debut album ‘Some Hearts’ is a feat very few musicians will ever accomplish in their careers, and the fact that she achieved the near-impossible in such a short period of time validates the idea that she will be a mainstay in the country music arena for decades to come.

Since rising to stardom after winning the fourth season of FOX’s hit talent competition ‘American Idol,’ Underwood set her sights on pursuing her love for country music by working with industry icons like songwriter Hillary Lindsey and producer Mark Bright. The result is a magical debut, something that only comes along every five years or so. The diversity found on ‘Hearts’ cannot be rivaled, as straight up country-pop like the Diane Warren-penned title track and more traditional representations of the genre like “Don‘t Forget to Remember Me” are a plenty.

The highlight of ‘Hearts’ is without question the inspirational ballad “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” in which Underwood narrates the tale of a woman in distress and her attempt to seek out help from a higher power. The song, which was the album’s first No. 1 single, cements Underwood’s place in the country world based on its power alone, but more upbeat country-pop tracks like “That’s Where It Is” and “Lessons Learned” also show her fun side. But it is on “Before He Cheats” that she comes alive, envisioning what she would like to do to retaliate on her cheating boyfriend. This #1 single was also a crossover hit, connecting the country superstar to pop music fans as well.

Underwood even lends her writing abilities to “I Ain’t In Checotah Anymore,” a spunky tale of her transition from small-town life to big city living. Her vocals on the power ballad “Starts With Goodbye” and the mid-tempo “Wasted” are impeccable, and legitimize her ‘Idol’ win.

Regardless of what happens in the future, Carrie Underwood will always be able to say she had a six-time platinum hit record in ‘Some Hearts,’ and the Grammy-winning artist will be seen as a model to follow for all up-and-coming country musicians for years to come.
