Carrie Underwood has been taking a break from touring lately to begin work on her upcoming album, but she did recently make a public appearance in California to support American Idol producer Simon Fuller as he got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“He has forever changed the face of the entertainment world, and along the way he even made some dreams come true for a lot of people, myself included, obviously,” said Carrie, whose win on Season 4 of American Idol kicked off a career that has earned the singer five Grammy Awards and five Country Music Association trophies. “I know that I would not be anywhere near where I am today if it was not for Simon.”
