    Just a bit over 2.8 million. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see them give her the 3X Platinum award when she performs on the finale.

    Re: Carrie Underwood

    I just received my invitation to Carrie's Fan Club party on June 9th in Nashville. For the second straight year she is being allowed to hold the party in The Grand Ol Opry. Then that night she is part of the Opry show.

    By the way, for anyone that may be going to Nashville the weekend of July 25th, it was announced yesterday that Carrie will be on the Opry that night as well.

    Yeah, I checked out the site. Maybe I will go. I'll be due for a road trip by then. Heck, I'm due for one now.

    Carrie Underwood Explains Why She Limped Off American Idol Tuesday

    Carrie Underwood told Ryan Seacrest why she limped off stage after performing on American Idol Tuesday night.

    "You're gonna laugh at me, everyone does," the Season 4 winner jokes on Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show.

    "I was running last Saturday in my little community [in Nashville]...It's about three miles," Underwood says. "I was about halfway through and I fell.

    "And this nice lady was driving behind me -- I'd never met her before," Underwood continues. "She saw the incident and was nice enough to pull over and roll down the window and say, 'Can I take you home?'

    "So I fought back tears and she took me home!" Underwood says.

    The country singer says her injury "looks ugly" but isn't too serious -- and it's the reason she donned denim and high boots for her performance.

    "I haven't worn jeans. I pick sundresses and shorts, so I wore jeans and that hurt!" she says, joking that it also affected her choreography.

    Underwood also remembers being in Kris Allen and Adam Lambert shoes a few years back.

    "You feel the emotion, so nervous," she says. "But they're so proud. They did themselves great. I just wanted to cry each time either one of them did anything. Just a good moment."

    As for who will win, "I think it's up in the air," Underwood says. "I think there definitely seems to be a lot more outspoken people for one person in particular -- but you might be surprised."

    Underwood says she "blacked out!" after her win, but now she feels like "old Idol.

    "It's so weird that this is, like, my job," she says. "I was just thinking about coming to Idol and doing my thing...and I thought, 'Holy crap! I'm famous! Oh my god, how did this happen?' It's the biggest show of my generation and it's just an amazing thought."

    Carrie’s music hit the racing circuit this week. First off during the Nascar Nationwide race her version of Home Sweet Home was played. Then prior to the Indy 500, there was a special highlight on Danica Patrick & they chose to use Carries All American Girl as the theme song. That’s some nice, yet unexpected, attention.

    Razor, why wasn't Carrie included in the George Strait Artist of the Decade tribute?

    I'm not sure. It could have been scheduling, maybe she wasn't asked, maybe she was & turned it down. No one ever said. But, I can say that it didn't bother me at all. George has never been to nice to Carrie. Every time she beats him for an award he gets this pained look of disgust on his face as if he is entitled, just watch his facial expressions some time when he loses. Better to let that warbilng Pop Princess Taylor Swift sing his praises anyway.
