Rewind: Carrie Underwood’s Wild (And Wildly Successful) Week
Keepin’ up with all things Carrie Underwood was a full-time job this past week.
The superstar singer manged to be here, there and everywhere while being in very few places herself. Everything focused around the release of her highly-anticipated single, “Good Girl,” which was followed by a flurry of activity — either directly involving Carrie or caused by her.
Along with releasing the single, the American Idol winner finally got involved with an online activity, saw the song soar up the charts and even found time for fashion.
Here now a review of her wild (and wildly successful) week:
2/23 “Good Girl” is released to radio and Carrie debuts the song with a live performance at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville.
