7 Notes Carrie Underwood Hit That Will Wear You Out

It’s no secret that American Country Countdown Awards performer Carrie Underwood is a vocal powerhouse. We knew it on American Idol and after five GRAMMYs we still know: this woman can do it all. Labeled a “full lyric soprano,” Underwood can smoke a hole in any song, most times leaving us at home breathless and worn out. My throat hurts just thinking about it. We gathered all of her big notes from various YouTube accounts and vocal range charts and attempted to translate their technical names into something we can all understand.
