Carrie Underwood

Tuesday is International Women’s Day and Carrie Underwood has certainly been influenced by some great women though out her career. Carrie says her biggest musical influences include Reba McEntire Dolly Parton, Faith Hill and Martina McBride.

“You see all of these women just juggle everything masterfully and many of them are moms and they’re superstars and they’re talented,” she shares. “that’s just such an inspiration to me and just lets me know that I can do it too.”

But the biggest female influence in Carrie’s life is her mom. “She was the first person that I was around that really taught me what it was like to be a woman, to be a Mom, to be a wife, to be a daughter and a sister,” she says.” I mean, she was just the best role model anybody could have ever had.”
