Carrie Underwood's net worth is massive: The complete breakdown here!
Inside Your Heaven hitmaker Carrie Underwood landed her big break in 2005 as the winner of American Idol. Fast forward to almost two decades later, Underwood is one of the most notable names in the country-pop singers and certainly the best-known American Idol alum. Underwood has largely stuck to singing and has achieved a few feats in acting, writing, etc.
Carrie Marie Underwood was born on March 10, 1983, in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Carrie had practically given up on her dream of singing and was majoring in mass communication at Northeastern State University when she took a leap and auditioned for American Idol season 4. Underwood consistently dominated the show's voting; hence it wasn't much of a surprise when she appeared victorious.
Carrie Underwood's net worth revealed!
Since winning the idol title in 2005, Underwood has dropped eight studio albums, while her ninth is just around the corner and has sold more than 70 million records worldwide.

As Celebrity Net Worth, the Don't Forget to Remember Me singer has an estimated net worth of $140 million, massively lot more than Kelly Clarkson's estimated net worth, her counterpart and a fellow idol winner, with whom Carrie is often pitted against. Aside from dough brought in by her successful albums, Underwood has also collected millions hitting the road as one of America's favorite country singers.
Forbes estimated that the Oklahoma native earned a striking $31 million in 2013, and a large proportion of it came from Carrie's extensive tours. While American Idol gave Carrie's career the kick it needed, it was the singer's soulful singing and the constant grind that sustained her career. Carrie's debut single, Inside Your Heaven, was an instant hit. The single followed the release of her platinum-certified debut album Some Hearts in November 2005.

In her rookie year alone, from 2006 to 2007, Forbes reported that Underwood earned an estimated $7 million from the sales of her debut album and her first headlining tour, Carrie Underwood: Live in Concert. Underwood's second album, Carnival Ride, was even a bigger seller. The album included five singles and achieved the biggest first-week sale by a female artist. Carie's earnings around her second album skyrocketed. As per Forbes, she earned $9 million between 2007 and 2008.
