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!
