    It was Carrie, Muduh. I remember the commercial, too.

    I don't doubt that. But "country" stars like Hank Williams, Jim Reeves, Garth Brooks, Brenda Lee, Patsy Cline, Eddy Arnold, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Shania Twain, Alan Jackson, Kenny Rogers, and Glen Campbell were/are widely known outside Nashville and you don't have to listen to strict-format country stations to be aware of their hits. Right now, I think Carrie's music is known mainly to "country music" fans, but she has the potential to be known by a much broader audience.

    Thanks for posting the pix. They're both cute. The bottom one reminds me of a very young Connie Stevens.

    Carrie is so photogenic. I'm surprised she's not on more magazine covers.

    Just the other day I was in B&N & without looking to hard I saw Carrie on 4 separate covers. That isn't the first time either. I don't think it would be an overestimation to say that I know of about 20 - 25 covers just since the release of her album. And there are at least two more in the pipelines due to release in the next couple of months. And even without the covers, you can find multiple articles & photo shoots going back all the way to the time of her first winning. I would guess these are probably nearing 50 or more.

    But I doubt that any of those people were widely known in their first year of public appearances. As a matter of fact, I can remember when most of them were fairly unknowns. None was a legend right out of the starting gate.

    Somebody earlier was saying that country music treats its female artists better than pop music does and those artists can look forward to long careers. I think that's where the discussion of past and present country stars came up. It wasn't about overnight sensations.
