Country superstar Carrie Underwood is moving on up and not to the east side. The American Idol alum, who was crowned the champ back in 2005, purchased her 2,956-square-foot home in Franklin, Tenn. soon after her glorious win. The three-bedroom, three and a half bath abode features a spacious kitchen, hardwood floors, garage, fireplace and originally cost the singer a swooping $384,000. Seven years later, the "Two Black Cadillacs" chanteuse has sold the house for an impressive $372,000, according to TMZ.
To-date, Underwood has sold over 15 million albums and roughly 25 million digital downloads, certainly warranting a change of scenery. Plus, the Oklahoma native married her professional hockey-playing husband Mike Fisher (the Nashville Predators) in 2010 in a lavishly quiet wedding. Together, the loving couple dropped $3.2 million in 2011 to build their dream house on the outskirts of Nashville, making Music City their official home.
This news comes on the heels of Underwood's best year of her career, after dropping yet another platinum-selling album. Blown Away, which bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, has spurred two No. 1 singles and earned her the distinction as the only country female with three weeks at the top on Mediabase / Country Aircheck. Furthermore, the album set in motion her critically acclaimed 55-city Blown Away Tour, hitting up many of the country's biggest venues, including Staple Center in Los Angeles. Needless to say, the blonde bombshell is riding high on her achievements, and there doesn't seem to be any signs of her slowing down. Her 2013 is shaping up to be just as record-breaking with 40 more tour dates, including a collection of shows in the UK and Ireland, and a starring role as Maria Von Trapp in NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music.
