By Carrie Underwood:
I never thought that any of this would actually happen to me. These kinds of things only happen to imaginary characters on television or in the movies...not real people. I began my life with the best family in the world already waiting for me. I was the last of three girls, the other two being nine and 12 by the time I came along. I had a very happy childhood full of the wonderful simple things that children love to do. Growing up in the country, I enjoyed things like playing on dirt roads, climbing trees, catching little woodland creatures and, of course, singing.
