Oklahoma Girl Wins 'Idol!'

Congratulations to Carrie Underwood for winning this season's "American Idol" title!
Can't find a photo of her to post here, so go check her out on "American Idol's" site, American Idol

She's from Checotah, OK, a small town in eastern Oklahoma, not too far from the original stomping grounds of some fellow bloggers.

Glad to see a fellow Okie achieve this, although my heart belonged to Bo Bice.

The nice thing about this competition is that the final two contestants usually both wind up having great success. I have no doubt that we'll hear a lot more good music from both Carrie and Bo.

This is a major departure for "Idol" -- first time ever to have a country singer and a Southern rocker make it to the finals. Ahhh they are finally appealing to these southern country ears of mine!

I've been rooting for Carrie all along, and I'm surprised she actually won. I was sure it would be Bo, but I wasn't worried about Carrie, as she didn't need to win in order to go onto a stellar career. I don't think coming in second is going to hurt Bo one bit. :)
