Carrie Underwood Almost Backed Out of Idol

July 8, 2019

Carrie Underwood revealed some spicy info about her career path during a BBC Radio interview.

When the conversation turned to her days on American Idol, the singer revealed her big break almost never happened!

“I always wanted to be a country music singer, and I had seen Idol. But I’m not that kind of person, to be honest. I don’t just go do stuff like that. That was dreaming too big. The stars just lined up in the right way. And my mom was a big supporter when I was trying to talk myself out of it, like ’It’s stupid. There’s no way. What are the chances?'” That’s when Underwood’s mom would say, “I will drive you. Let’s go. Why not?”

Crazy to think Carrie almost avoided the network television stage. Makes one ponder "What would have been?"
