68. Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood experienced another year of huge success with her country singing career. Adding to the sweetness, she was able to share it all with her husband of one year, hockey player Mike Fisher. She released her fourth album, Blown Away, in May 2012, featuring the successful single "Good Girl." Blown Away also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts. She received many accolades for the work. At the 2011 American Country Awards, she was crowned artist of the year, and won video of the year at the 2012 CMT Awards. Carrie continued to advocate for causes she loves, including animal rights and, more recently, gay marriage.
