CARRIE CELEBRATES HER FIRST NO. 1

Carrie Underwood had a good reason to party Tuesday, May 2, in Nashville—her first No. 1 record for "Jesus, Take the Wheel."

A large turnout of music industry executives and media showed up to help Carrie celebrate her big day. Before the party, Carrie met with members of the media to talk about the song and her red-hot career. She acknowledged that some radio stations around the country were at first reluctant to play "Jesus, Take the Wheel" because of its religious overtones. "They eventually came around," Carrie explained, "because I think they realized that it's a universal message." Carrie also told reporters that working with A-list Music Row songwriters has been a huge benefit. "I had never written that much before. So, the writers help me develop my own skills," she said.
