The Season four winner of “American Idol,” released her first album the same year she won the singing reality show in 2005.

The religious song, “Jesus, Take The Wheel,” tells the story of a young mother, who is driving with her baby and experiences an accident that nearly kills them both.

At that moment, the young woman surrenders her life to Jesus and pleads that He take the wheel and take them both to safety.


The car that almost crashed is taken as an example for the mother's life, as it is later found that she is looking for direction in troubled times and eventually turning to Jesus.

Hit songs namely, “Don't Forget to Remember Me,” Wasted,” “Before He Cheats,” were all part of her first album, but with this particular song Underwood took gospel music to a whole new level and created a sense of realization towards religion, according to Country Music Nation.


The song became a huge hit and remained at the top of the Billboard charts for six continuous weeks.

The country rock singer also won a few awards for the track, including Single of the Year at the 2005 American Country Music Awards.

Underwood’s album went on to become the best-selling solo album in country music history and garnered the recognition that the country singer deserved.


The singer and songwriter had met with an accident that left her with serious injuries. She returned to the stage for the first time after her accident in 2017.

The country star gave a beautiful rendition of her song “Cry Pretty” at the 53rd Country Music Awards on April 15, 2018.

According to People, it was a significant event of her career and marked her comeback since she was hospitalized after her fall in November 2017.

Underwood shares her son's life through pictures on social media and shows how adorable her son is with her followers.

Underwood is a doting mother without question, and she announced on August 8, 2018, on Instagram that she and her husband, Mike Fisher, are going to be parents for the second time.
