Carrie auditioned for American Idol in St. Louis.
Carrie: I never, ever had my heart set on being a singer. I always used to tell my mom, "If I'm supposed to sing, the doors will open". Now I feel like God has totally opened all these doors for me.
Carrie: (at her very first 'American Idol' audition) Well, life on the farm is pretty simple. Whenever my dad needs help in the mornings, I'll get up really early and go feed the cows, or put out the hay. I've never gotten to experience a lot of things that a lot of other people have. I never got to travel very far at all. I've never flown at all. I want to go to Hollywood really bad!
Carrie: I never expected to be in music at all! American Idol is the reason--the one and only reason--that I got to this point. They gave me everything.
Carrie: I've been cheated on a time or two. It's tough. I wouldn't recommend doing any property damage, though. Now I'm at the point where you get one shot with me. Life is too short.
Carrie: I watch what I eat, but I have a weakness for cheese. I can eat a pound of it! It's a real problem. Luckily, my stylist gives me the "I'm not feeling skinny today" clothing options!
Carrie: I relax by getting a couple of friends together and going out for dinner, or doing something goofy, going bowling or to the movies--the most normal activities. I had some old friends visit me, and they said, "It's so weird to think that you do what you do, because you're the same old Carrie." I thought, "Good!" You get into this crazy world and see so many places and see so many things, so you're bound to grow and change. But it's nice to have people think you're not just a stuck-up snob.
Carrie: Growing up, I always had the feeling that I should be somewhere else. I'd sit at home watching TV, eating ice cream, and I'd think, "There's so much stuff out there that I could be doing right now. So I feel happy about where I am in my life at the moment. God presents us with opportunities, and you take them, and you can succeed at them, but you have to try. You can't sit at home and wait for something great to happen.
Carrie: I met a woman at FedEx one time, and she's like, "You're so quiet. Onstage you're so outgoing." I said, "Lady, that's a different person up there!" You're able to really let go onstage; one-on-one is when I get shy.
Carrie (Before I get old): I wish that big hair would come back in style. I really like '80s rocker guys. You know how the really cool '80s rock bands had giant hair and wore women's clothing.
Carrie (Before it's too late): I need to be a little more responsible and preventative. Wear sunblock, moisturize more and drink more water.
Carrie (Before I was famous): I had a couple of freckles on my face that I didn't like, so I had them removed. And I remember one kid said, 'Now I can't play connect-the-dots on your face anymore!' I'll never forget that.
Carrie: The best times are when I am performing for people.
Carrie: It was at the CMT Awards last year that I gave my very first acceptance speech ever. Let me tell you, it's great to be up here again. Thank you, fans. I've had such an amazing, blessed two years. I started out on a fan-based show, and you guys have continued to support me throughout everything. ... Everybody around me has been so amazing. We're so blessed. I hope we continue to be blessed because this is awesome.
Carrie: Whatever happens is in the hands of the fans.
Carrie: My parents definitely did instill a good moral compass in all of us
Carrie (To Kelley Lovelace, Morgane Hayes and Ashley Gorley): I consider myself a spokesperson that goes out and sings in front of people. You guys have the hard part. I have so much respect for you.
Carrie: If I can survive American Idol, I can survive anything.
Carrie: I do think that it's important to keep people around me that are close. They are the ones who will tell me if I start acting "diva-ish." I hope I always stay the person that my parents raised.
Carrie: Its fun to do something that's outside your box and play a character that's not like you.
Carrie (on Before He Cheats): When I first heard it, I wasn't sure if it would fit on the album, but I loved the song.
Carrie: I just wanted my first album to do well enough where I could make a second one. It definitely exceeded all my expectations.
Carrie: So many people always try to help me carry my luggage and help me do things I can do myself. If I can do it myself, I'm going to do it myself. I'm not going to let other people do it for me, and I think that's a big part of where I came from. I'm not a real prissy girl.
Carrie (Denying she is dating Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo): I have read some of the most ridiculous things about that. The first time I ever met him was on Christmas, right there on the field. Everybody was like, 'Ooh, they are together.' And then I was blamed for Dallas not winning that game... He is a very nice guy and I've talked to him a few times, but we are very much not together.
Carrie (About Faith's reaction at the CMAs): Obviously, I was sitting in the audience, I didn't see what happened like everybody did at home so I did go to look it up afterwards just to see exactly what happened. I would've thought she was joking, but I guess I could see where people like my fans who were really protective of me, which is really awesome would think she was being disrespectful. I just felt really bad for her that she was just messing around back stage and it kind of got taken out of context.
Carrie: Anybody who tries to say I haven't paid my dues, I guarantee you, hasn't been on American Idol.
Carrie: If the album didn't do well, I would have felt that all those people spent all of their time and energy into something that might not have turned out to be worth it. It makes me feel good, that everyone is so excited about the album and it has done so well because all of that work was not done for nothing.
Carrie: I honestly don't think I realized what hard work goes into all of this. I thought the performers just showed up and sang.
Carrie: I really am surprised that people have taken to it like they have. I am lucky that people have responded so well. But, so many wonderful people have worked so hard to make the album great, so I am most glad for them... Their hard work is realized.
Carrie: I really like the fact that I came from a small town because things are different in a small town. Oh, when I was a little girl, you know, I'd climb trees and catch frogs and go fishing and stuff like that.
Carrie (Female vocalist of the year acceptance speech in 2006): Two years ago I was sitting at home watching these very awards and watching all these other people win and having the best night of their life, and this is the best year of my life.
Carrie (acceptance speech after winning the CMA Horizon Award): It took so many people to make this past year be as successful as it was. You all know who you are. They only gave me 40 seconds to talk. ... Thank you, American Idol. Thank you, fans. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You don't know what this means to me. Thank you, God. I love you, Mom and Dad.
Carrie: I was hoping for new female vocalist and that's all I was really hanging my hopes on. This is a monumental moment for me, a milestone in my life and my career.
Carrie: I can't have a dog or cat on tour because of allergic Idols, but when this is over, I'm having an animal in my arms.
Carrie: All of us gave it all we've got, overcame a whole lot just being on the show and learned a lot about ourselves. We're just normal people trying to do what we love and follow our dreams.
Carrie (on American Idol): It's been tough sometimes because I miss my family, but I talk to them every night. They're always going to be there for me.
Carrie: I want my permanent address to be in Oklahoma. Someday, when I get married and I have kids, that's where I want to raise my kids.
Carrie: I think a lot of people were just glad to see me and Bo as the final two. I try to think how I would have voted if I were sitting in the audience, and I really don't know. I was glad we were both there, and I get to do a lot of stuff with Bo now, so I'm really happy about that.
Carrie: Being a part of SKECHERS is exciting. It is such a hip company with a great attitude and image.
Carrie: I wondered how people would take me being a country music singer. I thought about deviating from that and singing other things. But... it doesn't really make sense for me to try to be something that I'm not.
Carrie: The only other time I've been away from home was when I went to college. And that was just an hour away, so I could always go home if I needed to.
Carrie: We don't have milk cows. People have so many stereotypes of people from where I come from-Oklahoma. We don't ride around in covered wagons, either.
Carrie: I've heard all kinds of crazy rumors about myself. I've even heard that I'm pregnant! I've become real good about laughing things off-I figure I'd better get used to it.
Carrie: It's really great to know that people really are behind me. During the whole show, we were in this American Idol bubble, so we never really knew how people outside of it viewed us. It's really great to know that there really are people that go and buy my album!
Carrie (on her country roots): I wanted to sing country music because that's where I wanted to go whether I won or not afterwards. Even if I got fourth, fifth, or sixth place, I wanted to have some country lable out there see me and be like, 'We want her!'
Carrie: I listen to all kinds of music, so I hope that I can throw a little bit of everything in my album. If they're good songs, then they're good songs, no matter where exactly they fit in. I'm hoping because of the show, people that love other genres of music will give me a chance, but I'm a country girl, and I'm not going to sell myself out!
Carrie: I want people to think of me as a nice person. I really am so blessed. All of this has been a great experience and I thank the American public so much for putting me in this position. I appreciate every second of it.
Simon Cowell (telling Carrie after a performance): It was rather like watching a washing-powder commercial in 1965.
Carrie: When I first got to Hollywood. I was just walking around, taking pictures of the Palm trees and stuff like that. And this guy walked up to me and asked if I'd seen any stars and I said: 'No, it's been kind of cloudy today.'
Carrie: I had my first date in 1999 when I was 16 years old. I was so excited! I walked into the living room to watch out the window for him and my dad was cleaning his shotguns!!!! My mom yelled at him for a while and, uh, the guy never asked me out again.
Carrie: I like to dance around the house when I'm getting ready. It gets my day going.
Carrie: Sometimes a girl's gotta have some chocolate!
Carrie: I'm a horror-movie fan Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, I freak myself out sometimes when I'm home alone.
Carrie: I'm a horror movie fan. I freak myself out when I'm alone.
